This, to some extent.
The problem with it as a notion is that Shawn was such a prick during that time, whose life was completely out of control. Had the Shawn Michaels of 2002 surfaced in, say, 1999, it would have been terrific. A guy purely focused on having good matches, entertaining the fans, etc.
Seeing him feud with The Rock would have been amazing. Other possibilities include Mankind (their Mind Games match alone deserved a full-length program), Triple H when he was the best wrestler in the world (2000), as well as more stuff with Stone Cold and Undertaker.
He would have made a perfect corporate champion once The Rock had become a fully-fledged face. Shawn Michaels and Triple H parallel to Stone Cold and The Rock would have been unbelievably entertaining.
