Shawn Michaels is certainly one of the best in-ring performers to have ever graced a WWE ring. He was touted as Mr. WrestleMania and he truly lived up to the name. He addressed his critics as well.

Michaels has always exceeded expectations when it comes to performing in a match. Many say that he was so good inside the ring, that HBK could even have a believable match with a broomstick.

However, not everyone feels his skills were that good. Speaking on “WWE After The Bell with Corey Graves,” Michaels responded to those who feel his style of wrestling was overrated.

”I’ve seen people working very hard trying to diminish a lot of my performances, ‘Ah, it wasn’t really real,'” Michaels said. “Sorry, I’m always of the school — apparently there’s a real version of what it is we do, and I didn’t do that.


All I’m saying is, I understand everyone has a preference, but again, I feel like if you are not evolving and changing… I don’t know, you’re going backwards,” Michaels said. “I think you get swallowed up that way. So, I just think you always wanna stay ahead of the curve because slowing down, that we can do. That we’ll be able to figure out. Let’s find out what the next hurdle is, and then we can think about slowing down.”

Since Triple H took over creative duties of WWE, Shawn Michaels has been put in charge of NXT and he has done good job bringing out the young roster’s talent with a couple of welcome changes.
