WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was once ranked as The Top WWE Superstar Of All Time by his peers, and there's little reason as to why. He's a four-time World Champion and has been nicknamed Mr. WrestleMania for his show-stopping performances at the annual event. And even outside of WWE's reach, Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine readers nominated him for Match of the Year honors an unprecedented 11 times during his career. Of course, Michaels wouldn't have had the career he did without a steady stream of opponents to match up against.
