Haha yeah that's what I got it from when I said it in OP
I thought that's what he mainly did towards his endHBK wouldn't put over Danielson. He may have found god and all that shit and might not be a pilled out jackass, but he still wouldn't have put anyone over.
I think if Shawn had stuck around a feel more months and actually be willing to put guys over he could have elevated a few guys for sure.
I like that ideaI'd personally put them in a position where they need to wrestle - and they go in acknowledging their history and they shake hands and go at it and Daniel gives him a HELL of a match, eventually winning with a roll up.
Afterwards, as Daniel waits to embrace his mentor and thank him for the opportunity to face an idol - Michaels superkicks him out of nowhere.
HBK Heel vs his nerdy face protege works best here in furthering Daniel's character. Not to mention, I'd love to have seen a last HBK heel run before he left as he's much more interesting as the bad guy.
Right but put it this wayThe only guy he really elevated in the last 7 years was Orton. Cena and Jericho were already well established by the time they got their victories over HBK.
That's funny because whenever you hear about these Sports Academies I always think: "Man they probably show up the first day and you never see them again" with Shawn I wouldn't have thought it'd be like thatFrom what I heard Shawn Michaels just stuck his name on the wrestling school and worked with some of them a little bit, but it's not like he taught them everything they know.
