🤼‍♂ How Good of a Wrestler Were They Really? 🤼‍♀ #23 Shawn Michaels 💔

Always remember this go-home segment before summerslam 02 (before hbk v hhh and rock v brock) and thinking it was dynamite even then. So worth a watch. Still one of the most over face receptions I can remember, and JR on top form ‘4 YEARS MY ASS’


the way Brock sells the kick :smiley:


seriously if there’s anyone out there who hasn’t seen the original Hell in a Cell, it’s an absolute must. The match itself is so brilliant and set such a high bar for the gimmick, but also has one of the best finishes/introductions ever


Probably the best cell match ever? Think it definitely outclasses the Taker/Foley match in terms of storytelling if not spectacle. The way Shawn plays up his desperation to escape is gold.


Forgetting Bossman vs Taker there

Never actually seen the first HIAC, will remedy that this weekend

Always thought of that as a bit nothingy, except the hanging spot, may need a rewatch. Taker and Brock 2002 is surely underrated too and a lot of people liked Triple H’s v Foley in 00 and Batista in 05 but a HIAC without Taker doesn’t really do it for me.

I wasn’t being serious with the Bossman one haha it is an extremely dull match.

Think the concept is always more intriguing than the actual match


An easy 5.

The quality of his matches was consistently higher than anyone else I’ve ever watched. He has the best music too.

Right let’s end this then, sexy boy Shawn Michaels scores a very decent 4.21 just under Ric Flair :+1: and ahead of Bret Hart :-1:

D-X score 2.33, rightfully keeping JBL at the bottom of the pile

The Rockers score 3.71 while madman Marty scores an exact 2.

Vince McMahon would be a good thread

would be good shit, pal*


Bulldog would be good.

Read that a lot of his issues with drugs came as a result of chronic pain caused from him being slammed onto a botched trapdoor in a WCW match. Wouldn’t surprise me if loads of that sort of negligence went on and their contracts were so watertight they didn’t get paid out.


yeah that’s how I’ve understood it. Really tragic story.

We will get to them all eventually!
