The hockey and wrestling worlds collided Sunday with former WWE star Shawn Michaels attending Game 5 of the NHL's Eastern Conference finals in Pittsburgh.
Michaels, who was known as the Heartbreak Kid (HBK) in his WWE heyday, recently acquired an interest in the NHL when the Pittsburgh Penguins' deep postseason run was buoyed by the play of the Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, Phil Kessel line -- also nicknamed HBK.
Michaels, accompanied by former Steelers DE Brett Keisel, made a stop at iconic Pittsburgh-based sandwich shop Primanti Bros, known for its french-fries-and-coleslaw-accented creations, before stepping into Consol Energy Center.

Unfortunately for Michaels, he watched his Penguins fall 4-3 in overtime as the Tampa Bay Lightning took a 3-2 series lead.
