I Need Your Help Please Mr. Keith


Hey Scott, super long time reader…

I was trading e-mails with someone I’m a big fan of on a radio show who thinks Shawn Michaels is… well, let’s just say heavily overrated. That’s another story in it’s entirety, however, one part of his opinion seemed insane to me… he claimed Shawn, unlike Flair, Bret, Bryan, etc., never carried a bad worker to a great match. Obviously this is insane, but I was wondering if you could please give me some of the best examples you could think of off the top of your head? Not asking for any deep contemplation or anything, of course.

I imagine this may seem unbelievably silly – and it probably is – but any help would be appreciated!

Thank you for phrasing it in a way where I can continue to bash Hogan and Reigns.  
Shawn carried Hogan's (literally) broken down ass in 2005, lock stock and barrel. As an alternative you could look at Tatanka at WM9.  Or Ken Shamrock in 97.  Or the best example, Kevin Nash at WM11.  During his prime you could basically throw him in there with ANYONE and Shawn would get himself over.   Doesn't mean it was effective for the other guy, but Shawn sure as shit made some terrible workers have great matches.  
And of course Daniel Bryan did the same for Roman Reigns this past week.
