In terms of what he did for the business,he didn't do much. Yes he put on some great matches,but he's not a household name,he didn't put anyone over that I can remember,and he never really transcended wrestling. Let the counter-argument being.

He created controversy revolutionized the ladder match proved that a small guy can make it big before Mysterio, showed that a small guy can handle himself very well against much bigger opponents. Think about it. I don't see him as the best but he is one of the Greatest wrestler of in history

well shawn michaels did popularize the IC championship and he is one of the most popular high-flyers in wwe history. i do think shawn michaels is a bit overrated when it comes to the term wrestling as a whole and even when it comes to wrestling in the wwe. i would say shawn michaels is one of the best WWE/F SUPERSTARS but he wasn't the best wrestler in the wwe nor was he one of the best wrestlers in wrestling period. we have wrestlers from the past and present better than shawn michaels like the undertaker, rob van dam, chris jericho definitely and even cm punk.

Im not going to disagree with your opinion at all because he was more of a performer than wrestler but I will give him credit for great matches even after taking three years off from his back surgery and he wrestled Triple H in his first match back in a BRUTAL beatdown from the Game but HBK went on from there and never stoped untill the Undertaker retired him in the 2nd and last epic match between them.Your right 100% HBK is way down the list of a true wrestler and Kurt Angle is the best wrestler imo like Shawn is as a performer.

1) He 'never' put anyone over . If that was true , then why did he won just 1 world championship after his return in 2002 and just 4 world championships in his entire wwe career . If that is not called putting people over , then i don't know what does . 2) He was not popular . If it wasn't for shawn , wwf would have gone out of business before 1998 , when austin turned the tide . He was the most popular wrestler during 1995-1997.
