As far as the bolded part. He IS better as a WRESTLER than Michaels and Angle for sure when you consider his FULL body of work, not just WWE. Look at ROH, Dragon Gate, Pro Wrestling Noah, etc.. and see how many matches he had that were 4 stars or above, and you'll notice that over 95% of his matches are which validates why critical wrestling sites like "Wrestling Observer" has given him "Best Technical Wrestler" from 2004-2013, and "Most Outstanding Wrestler" from 2005-2010.
So his best work is contained in organizations not readily available to the main stream audience, so instead we get saddled with the current shit to try and tell us why he's the best. How convenient.
His WWE run has been so uneventful. Its like saying "so and so is a great actor, but you only have to watch certain movies and ignore these other ones." Well gee, that's a little close minded. However great he was in the Indies, he's been sub par in WWE, and that's where he's getting exposure. Too bad we don't get to see those skills in a Raw ring...
