Michaels made his directorial debut in 1991 with the films My Baby's Got Back and In Loving Color. He started Sean Michaels Productions in 1993, which became Sean Michaels International in 1997 when Anabolic Video began handling its distribution.
According to an adult film news web page, in 2003 Michaels was issued a cease and desist order by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on the use of his name due to the similarity it had to WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels. According to the same adult film web page, Sean's name was already registered as a trademark, while Shawn Michaels had not registered his moniker.
