* BaseBreaker: Both among the fans and other wrestlers. There seems to be a general consensus among many of his past coworkers of "He was a great wrestler but he was also a huge jerk."

** He was also all over this in his commissioner days, routinely getting the best of everyone on the roster with a smile and a wink, up to and including Vince [=McMahon=].

unfortunate implications need citations
* UnfortunateImplications: Going into his feud with Undertaker for Wrestlemania 25 Michaels did a promo in which he became a 'light' version of the Undertaker with a white BadassLongcoat and hat. He was accompanied to the ring by druids dressed in white robes too...which many fans agree looked disturbingly very much like a KKK convention, though that was clearly not the intention. They wisely didn't bring them in again. ** Actually, most fans didn't find the druids' robes quite so troubling as the fact that Shawn had basically turned into a KungFuJesus. *** A ''stripping'' Kung Fu Jesus, no less.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: When Michaels turned heel and betrayed his Rockers tag team partner Marty Jannetty, the intention was for the both of them to become major singles stars. However, it only worked out that way for Michaels, as Jannetty became the poster boy for "the guy left in the dust after the double act is over". Since then, however, Michaels' success was interpreted as part of a formula, resulting in all too many tag teams (especially in WWE) being created and broken up with the intention on forcing the BreakupBreakout trope, to varying results. Ultimately, the minute it became clear Shawn would go much further than Marty, the devaluing of tag team wrestling in WWE was all but inevitable.

Moving to Trivia page.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: HBK never went toe-to-toe with [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], primarily because their primes largely occurred JUST a year apart and Michaels at once point costing the Rock the championship with a well-timed superkick. Rumor has it this is because Rock HATES Michaels for trying to bury him under Triple H in the 90s, but these rumors are unsubstantiated, and for whatever it's worth, Rock did mention Michaels as one of the only three wrestlers he never wrestled that he wished he could have (the others being Rey Mysterio Jr. and John Cena, the latter of which Rocky will be facing at next year's Mania). ** Similarly, Michaels superkicked Wrestling/BrockLesnar at least once, but nothing ever came of it. And Michaels himself has mentioned regretting never getting a chance to go with Eddie Guerrero. ** We also never got to see Michaels vs. Wrestling/CMPunk, but they teased it during Michaels' most recent visit to Raw... if he comes back, it'll probably be to go up against Punk, Rock, and/or [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] (who Michaels trained and remains close with). ** There were, allegedly, plans for him to team up with Bret Hart at two different points. Once was before the Montreal Screwjob as kind of a nuevo Mega Powers, and the second was during a 2005 feud with Vince [=McMahon=]. ** Similar to the above, there was a planned Rockers reunited angle against [=McMahon=], but Janetty missed a show and was released. ** On the flip side, Shawn was (allegedly) responsible for aborting the pushes of Tatanka, Chris Candido, Wrestling/BamBamBigelow, Shane Douglas, and others, as well as attempting (but failing) to bury Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock.

Chances are, if you weren't rolling your eyes over Shawn "losing his smile," you were probably tearing up.
