as far as WRESTLING skills go, I can think of a ton of people better than Shawn Michaels.















Kurt Angle for one.















I think Goldberg tops the list.















































HBK had much better acting skills;















he had a good character, strong charisma.















His sweet chin finisher is always fun to watch.

You can't say who is better than HBK. Don't get me wrong! I am not saying it because I am his fan, but because he is amazing wrestler and there a lot of wrestlers standing on the same level as him like Triple H, Undertaker, Y2J, Kurt Angle, Sting etc. So you can't really say which one is better than HBK cause every wrestler has his own advantages and disadvantages in the ring, even HBK does have disadvantages :P

YES many superstars are better obviously the Undertaker and H but even John Cena The Rock and the best ever was Steve Austin he kicked so much ass and drank two at a time so many good memories of him taking WWE by storm

No. there will never be another Shawn Michaels.















He was/is the best wrestler of all time.















HBK is the Heart-Break Kid and no one can out-perform him.































are there still amazing wrestlers out there? of course.















but nobody can match the skills of Shawn Michaels.

If by Wrestling Skills you mean as In-Ring Skills than I think the person that's better than HBK is Sin Cara. (Don't go all hating on me plz, i've seen Sin Cara wrestle b4 he went to the WWE)































As for ACTUAL wrestling skills, i'd have to go with Kurt Angle cause he puts ACTUAL wrestling in his matches.

For in-ring skill Kurt Angle is the best. The fundamental move in wrestling is the fireman's carry and nobody executes it better than he did. Remember, he had the world's best coach in David Schultz who trained many Olympians. I respect HBK. But Angle is tops for modern era wrestlers. Lou Thesz was best for old school greats.

This is a purley opinionated question, but here is my lengthy take:































Are there better wrestlers technically than HBK: Sure I can list probably 9 right now: Benoit, Guerrero, Malenko, Hart, Flair, Jericho, Regal, Henning, Steamboat. However, HBK is always in that top 20 mix depending who you ask















Were there better storytellers: not many, but Vince Mcmahon has stated that Bret Hart was the best he has ever seen. However, Shawn is a tremendous story teller and can work all styles, which leads me to my next point:















Where Shawn shined was his ability as a worker and in ring performer: look at Shawn Michaels great matches















VS Razor Ramon wm 10















Vs Jeanetty raw 1993















VS Hart wm 12















he even had a freakin decent match with lazy Diessel ( Nash) at IYH Good friends better enemies 1994















VS Mankind: In your house Mind Games















vs Taker HIAC Bad Blood 1997















He was the one who passed the torch to Austin at wm 14















he got injured and had maybe the most impressive streak of years with a work rate maybe in history.















VS HHH Summerslam 2002















1st Elimination chamber winner















VS Jericho WM 19















Vs HHH LMS RR 2004















VS Benoit and HHH WM 20















vs HHH HIAC Bad Blood 2004















vs Angle: wm 21 and again at Backlash















Vs Mcmahon wm 22 ( I don't like it but it was MOTY according to PWI)















vs Cena wm 23 and their classic on Raw following ( precisely 4 years from today, and widely considered Cena's best match)















vs Ric Flair Wm 24















vs Jericho Unforgiven















vs Taker wm 25















vs taker wm 26















I know I missed a lot, but these are Shawn's arguably most acclaimed matches, many have great technical wrestling















HBK has the most match of the year awards from PWI, and even Vince Mcmahon and Jim Ross have called HBK the greatest in Ring Performer ever. Jericho has also stated that wm 19 was 1 of his finest matches and his favorite in Undisputed, and he aint called MR WM for nothing. so even though HBK may not be the greatest in 1 catagory, his combination of technical prowess, storytelling, and ability to work with anyone from a slouch like Diessel, to a good worker with a hardcore style like Mick Foley, to a technical god like Chris Benoit and have a 4 to 5 star match says enough about HBK's in ring ability. I feel there is no one better. ( On a side note, when you combine this with HBK's mike skill, innovation and classic moments and forming DX, you get 1 of the most complete packages in wrestling history.
