From Annie Licuz:

In his recent interview with UK Sun’s Rob McNichol, Chris Jericho says Shawn Michaels is the greatest performer to ever grace a wrestling ring — bar none.

Chris Jericho said:

“The best way to put it is that Shawn IS the Hall of Fame.

There’s nobody that has ever been in the business that deserves to be in the Hall of Fame more than Shawn Michaels. That includes Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Steve Austin or anybody else.

Shawn is the epitome of what the Hall of Fame is because to me he is the best performer of all time. He is not even close to anybody else.

You can debate it with me until the cows come home — you can say all you want. You can give me all the facts and figures, it’s not going to change my mind.

I’m so excited that he is in the Hall of Fame, but it’s essential that he be in there. If he wasn’t it would be a waste of time.”
