Summerslam '02: Shawn Michaels first match back in four years was an unsanctioned bout at the 2002 Summerslam. Weeks prior Triple H smashed Shawn Michaels into a car window and Michaels wanted his revenge. These two beat the bloody hell out of each other and even though Shawn Michaels got the victory, it did not last long because Triple H pounded on him with his trademark sledgehammer. This was just the beginning of a long battle between the two.
Armageddon '02: Triple H was still not done with Michaels and this time he took him on in a three Stages of Hell match at that year's Armageddon. First they fought in a street fight where Triple H won, then Shawn Michaels got a victory in a steel cage match, and the two battled on to the final stage, a ladder match. In the last part Triple H won the ladder match by throwing Michaels through multiple tables and grabbing the title 35 minutes into the match.
Wrestlemania XX: The year 2004 reignited the feud between Triple H and Shawn Michaels and this started at Wrestlemania XX. Shawn Michaels had the world title itch, and Triple H happened to be the World Heavyweight Champion. Also involved in the mix was the Royal Rumble Chris Benoit, making their encounter at Wrestlemania a Triple Threat match for the title. Shawn Michaels always puts on a great match at Wrestlemania and it was no different here with all three wrestlers working the Triple Threat component well and putting on a really impressive match. Both Triple H and Shawn Michaels would lose out on this match though, when Chris Benoit made Triple H tap out and he became the new World Heavyweight Champion.
Bad Blood 2004: Their feud became heated once again and when they lost all control, they were forced to battle it out in a Hell in a Cell match. Both men have fought in them before, but never this long, as they fought each other for over forty minutes. It took two pedigrees but Triple H finally kept Shawn Michaels down and won this long match that one of the best for both wrestlers.
