Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

I hope you aren't implying that Shawn Michaels wasn't good for anything besides ring work. I also find it a contradiction to bring up poor business almost immediately after criticizing someone for taking the opinions of the masses into account.

Of. All. The. People.

And Bret, aside from being an elegant technician, had people hollering and crying just as loud.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

I wasn't implying anything, I said it. Michaels was never a good talker, he was a star because of his looks, much like Orton.

What?! HBK was great all around. What planet are you on? Are we talking about Shawn Michaels here, and not someone else with a similar name? There is nothing in comparison between Michaels, and Orton. That's just pure ignorance on your part. You're right Michaels was a never a "good" talker, he was "great" at it. His mic work during the Bret Hart feud, The Undertaker feud, the Austin feud, and so were epic. His break out promo once he split from Marty, and kicked him through some glass was great. He was way ahead of his time, and anybody, but a blind man could see that.

To say that HBK got by on his looks is easily one of the most ignorant wrestling comments I have ever heard. Seriously, HBK was one of the few stars who could blend kayfabe, and non kayfabe promos perfectly with near flawless delivery. The heart, and soul he put on the mic was always obvious when HBK spoke. You seriously need to sit down, relax, put your feet up, and watch some old HBK promos. There is a reason they call him one of the most, if not the most charismatic superstars of all time. Again, if you didn't get it the first time around. HBK is one of the best story tellers of all time.

If you have an example of a good Michaels promo, I'd sure as hell love to see it.

Re: The Shield Discussion Thread II

^So would I.

Michaels was terrible on the mic. Even Daniel Bryan is a better mic worker than Michaels, and that's pretty fucking sad. Believe me, I don't need to suffer through watching his old promos, I know them well. I've been watching as long as you have.

Also, FYI, I never said Michaels wasn't charismatic, but he's clearly a case where charisma and mic work do NOT mix. If Michaels was so good on the mic he would've actually drawn some money, which he failed at doing spectacularly.
