History is written by the Victors. In this specific case, it’s edited and rewritten by Vince McMahon. There are some who have been helped by this, such as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, and the Ultimate Warrior. There are some who have been hurt by this, such as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, and the Ultimate Warrior. At the end of it all, the one man to truly benefit for displaying things the way he sees it is Vince McMahon.

Shawn Michaels without question... here is a guy who was an absolute shit person off camera. He famously threw Marty Jannetty under the bus with a lie to Vince, which saw Marty fired and started his descent into addiction... to the point Curt Hennig forced a "Billy Martin" when he heard about it...

Shawn was a guy who never jobbed titles, would rather get himself suspended or beat up or conveniently "lose his smile" rather than job a belt and was a mess on all kinds of substances... but yay... he found GOD (TM) and was some how repackaged as this paragon of virtue.

Yes his second career was better in ring than his first, yes he put more people over... but he still had his moments, like the Hogan match where the old Shawn came out to play. Even now with his "will he/won't he" have another match, he is playing with people.

Revisionist sums him up... his frankly horrific deeds backstage are all erased with hindsight and through the lens of "he's born again...and he's the best ever..." The Jericho feud for example had real chunks of truth woven in there about Shawn, that's what made it work rather than it being Shawn's talent...

In truth, his 93-DX time was mediocre in terms of success, drawing and it was only when he ramped up the swears and raciness that he really took off. People love to say "his matches were great" but back then he was nearly always working with an equal... Razor, Bret, even Jarrett were all as good as him. It's only since he came back the second time that he has been painted as "the best ever..."
