There was no one more natural in the ring than Shawn Michaels. Whether he was a face or a heel, you never questioned what the Heartbreak Kid was feeling. His passion was also evident in his ring work, where he sacrificed his body with some of the most athletic, high-flying moves in the WWE while he was active.

There may never be another overall threat like Michaels ever again.

People remember the classic matches Shawn Michaels was a part of, but he also had his lighter moments.

#TeamRandySavage

People like to talk about The Rock or Ric Flair when they talk of mic legends, but Randy Savage could go toe-to-toe with anyone in a promo. His low, raspy growl made him an often imitated, but never duplicated star in the WWE. It was that voice that made him a star in wrestling, helping Savage crossover into the mainstream to be a great pitchman in commercials outside of the industry.

People forget, but Savage was one the best to step in front of the camera.

Coupled with his great promotions, Savage earned his stardom battling with Hulk Hogan and Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. He was a good enough performer to feed off Hogan and was technically gifted enough battle with anyone. Savage was the complete package as a WWE performer.
