Best HBK promos from the mid 90s

Can anyone help me and link me to some good Michaels promos during that time? I saw little of his mic work except with DX (even then, I haven't seen all of their promos). Thanks

Re: Best HBK promos from the mid 90s

I'd say to look for Shawn Michaels promo's in between late 1995 and early 1998 as that was when he did his best mic work in my opinion but if you went all the way through The New Generation Era as well you'd see for that point in time Shawn Michaels was one of the very best mic workers of that whole era. I've always found Shawn Michaels promo's in between late 1996 and mid 1997 to be very underrated as he was showing much more of his natural persona in that period and nothing was as forced as some of his babyface promo's had been earlier one.

Re: Best HBK promos from the mid 90s

I remember seeing a promo where Michaels is talking about a great body and the camera is showing Sunny going from her legs to face and then Michaels says there ain't no one like the Heartbreak kid but you do run a close second. Couldn't find it on youtube but that always makes me laugh.

I'll check some out, any specific examples? Only reason I'm asking is because I saw HBK burying X-Pac as commish and thought that was great, and then it occurred to me that I really don't know many HBK promos before 2002

I always thought his heel promos were the best, especially in 1997.

Promo hyping HIAC with the Undertaker. This is the infamous promo where someone backstage dared him to wear gauze in his shorts and he did and got fined by Vince $10,000 for it.




Hyping his feud with Austin in 1998: (sidenote: I always thought the DX shirts they wore in this promo was even better than the silver "2 words suck it" shirt)

The night after Hell in a Cell, DX vs Hart Foundation promo, epic.

Shawn and Triple H on commentary mocking the Hart Foundation. Amazing.



Another DX promo.
