The Showstopper, The Main Event, The Headliner, Mr. Wrestlemania - yours sincerely, the Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels!! The guy that turned face in real life becoming a devout Christian and stopping to bury every single wrestler he disliked.
Truly phenomenal in-ring talent. If there was a perfect moveset it's HBK's, it either perfectly fitted his persona or he performed all the moves borderline perfectly, I would say it's both. He used to wrestle very old school, something like Undertaker except HBK was much better. Diving elbow drop, the Sweet Chin Music, modified figure four leg lock, flying clothesline... Loved basically every move he was doing. He was a good technician, brawler, occassional high flyer, grappler. Basically any wrestling skill you can think of, he was either good or very good at it. Some of the best matches in the bussines belong to Shawn Michaels. He knew how to turn chicken shit into chicken salad that much that I imagine even if he wrestled Roman Reigns it would turn out to be a good match. A lot of guys try to copy his style so obviously(read: Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler etc..), but it doesn't ever work, there is only one HBK.
When it comes to non-wrestling abilities he was also amazing, but still mostly worse than in-ring, which isn't a big deal considering how good he was in the squared circle. Damn that voice tho, it's like chainsaw cutting autumn wood somewhere in the Texas mountains.. He had decent mic skills, his promos were always causing reactions, either the funny DX ones or hateful Bret Hart feud ones. He might've been better on the mic, but considering his other skills it wasn't much needed. Character work quite simple but yet so good, he didn't change much persona's and frankly it wasn't needed, there is something about the HBK character that never gets old, like RKO's outta nowhere or something. Charisma very good, one of the few guys that could get massive reactions without much talk. Imo one of the best heels in WWE history, I'll never forget that scene of him drugged outta his mind wiping his ass with a Canadian flag IN CANADA. He was okay as a babyface as well, just didn't bring as much heat as he did as a heel.
When it comes to rating there is not much thinking needed, Shawn is an upfront 10/10. Imo he's somewhere in the top 3 of all time greats and most probably the #1.
