** When he fought Chris Benoit and Triple H at Backlash 2004 in Canada, he was treated as the worst of the lot despite Triple H being the monster heel.

* 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=].

* 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.
