WWE Legend Shawn Michaels -- Animal-Killing Machine

6/17/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-WWE legend Shawn Michaels is grabbing life by the horns -- and slaughtering it with a CROSSBOW ... killing all sorts of majestic wildlife for a new hunting television show.

The show is called "Shawn Michaels' MacMillan River Adventures" -- premiering next month on the Outdoor Channel -- but according to the show's rep, Shawn ain't just hunting for sport ... the guy actually EATS everything he kills.

We also spoke to Michaels himself, who tells us, "I am a Christian, I am an American, I am a family man, and I am a predator, and MacMillan River Adventures will allow my long-time fans and newfound friends to see what really makes Shawn Michaels the man that he is today.”

** Disclaimer: Animals were definitely harmed during the production of this show **

Damon,

I don't have time to respond to your angry book of off-topic generalizations. I'm interested in debating the issue of modern game sporting using man-made weapons. Maybe you can chat with somebody else?
---------------------------------------------------------------

Survey says: mid can't argue the logic!
great deflection!


You keep saying sport, but won't acknowledge that the meat and pelt aren't wasted!

Modern gun season is short - it only last a 2-3 weeks. The tags that print with the liscense must be on the animal in the field or the game warden will fine them severly and confiscate the animal. The amount of tags depends on the population and averages about 3 per person. Then it's back to bow!

So, again modern gun season is very short! Which means "high-powered" rifles (lol!), are a very small part of hunting; but you knew that already!


I'm sarcastic not angry! I am sick of animal rights people trying to demonize something they have no true understanding of!


Animals kill and eat other animals! They stalk and attack the weakest of the herd! Is it fair that a wounded gazelle is attacked by a tiger/lioness?

My comments weren't off target! I was illustrating that if grocery stores close people who don't know how to hunt, fish or garden, for that matter, would be SOL!

Because convenience breeds laziness!


The gun is just a means to an end! It doesn't matter what he kills it with, because an improper field dress will render the meat unfit to eat!

It's why athletes, doctors, musicians and actors practice: you don't wait until showtime to figure it out! You don't wait until there's an outbreak of madcow rendering all processed meat unfit to start to learn how to hunt!

I love how Christians always seem to be the ones most in love with killing.

I agree with #1 ASS! You want to eat organic meat, buy a calf, raise it, care for it, keep it healthy then when it's mature slaughter it humanely and eat it. You do not need to run around shooting wild animals for your meat. Are there some areas and cultures that rely on hunting for food, sure there are however HE is not one of them.. and this all for thrill, all for the money and because it's more profitable to let loose that roid rage. Nothing makes a man feel better about his tiny pee-pee than a big rifle.

"More SH*T about violent non-celebrity wrestlers that nobody cares about"

non-celebrity? nobody cares about? please!!

if you ask most any normal guy (and some ladies) who they "care about" more, i'm pretty damn sure even lesser-known wrestlers like george "the animal" steele or "ravishing" rick rude would be a hell of a lot higher on the list than "celebrities" such as any cast member on the jersey shore.

the wrestlers of the 80's were true entertainers; not a group of no-talent deadbeats who allow viewers to feel less crappy about their own lives after watching 15 mins of theirs.

What a big man!
Must be making up for a tiny little penis! Real men who are predatory sign up for the military and go to war where they face actual opposition from their prey.

Only cowards take their cruelty out on defenseless animals.

@sonja how are you to kill it? do you pry for it to fall over? do you even know how they kill cows? sledge hammer to the head? knife to the throat? air blast to the brain? shocking it most of the time so it wont kick while dieing and bruising the meat..

yeah I love to see you do any of those and not be able to kill a deer..

even the WWF and other animals loving groups have said that hunting is more humane to the animal than how they kill millions of cows every year so you can eat burger king...

I won't tell you how the do it illegally or in other countries..

The fact is, that hunters and fisher-persons contribute more money to wildlife conservation than all others combined, and always have. They were instrumental in getting the first wildlife management laws passed over a hundred years ago. If you are anti-hunting I would suggest that you put your money where your mouth is. Money talks, BS walks.

Man, I hope the coming correction of humanity comes soon, just so most of you idiots that get food from the store with your Prius will starve because you have no clue how to actually live. All you can do is criticize and demonize people. Then we shall see how far your dumb ideals take you in this world.

This is not a sport. It is 2 patheti*****tle boys with little d**ks, who need to hurt an innocent animal to make themselves feel like men. It didn't work.
