Shawn Michaels, Nick Bockwinkel, and Marty Jannetty
[1987]

A very cool candid snapped of three prominently featured AWA superstars. The team of Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty were known as The Midnight Rockers, who in the AWA, won the AWA World Tag Team Championships on two occasions in 1987. Their first victory came in January when the duo defeated the team of Buddy Rose and Doug Somers, and the second reign began in December when they defeated The Original Midnight Express (Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose). 1987 was a big year for The Midnight Rockers, but also for Nick Bockwinkel who, after four decades, retired from wrestling.
