On this date in WWF history: Shawn Michaels wins his first-ever WWF singles title

On November 8, 1992, former "Rocker" Shawn Michaels, not even a year into his villainous heel turn, won his first-ever singles title under the WWF banner by defeating the British Bulldog during a taping of Saturday Night's Main Event.

It's just unfortunate it had to come with such an ugly finish.

Pinning Davey Boy Smith won him the Intercontinental Championship, a title he would hold two more times throughout his illustrious career.

Any "Heartbreak Kid" fans out there remember marking out for this win? Or were you cheering for the British Bulldog?

Be honest!
