Bruce Prichard believes that Shawn Michaels would be a perfect candidate for a documentary such as the one currently chronicling The Undertaker's career on WWE Network.
In the 1990s, there was probably no wrestler more polarizing than Shawn Michaels. While Michaels was great in the ring, he grew a reputation for being egomaniacal, immature, and unwilling to do business.
While speaking to Newsweek, Bruce Prichard, who was a prominent figure backstage in the WWE during Shawn Michaels heyday, says the Attitude Era pioneer was “misunderstood” and would like to see a deep-dive documentary on his career and his journey through life.
“[WWE] has done one on Ric Flair. But when you look at the roster of WWE legends, you have to look at guys like Steve Austin, you have to look at guys like Shawn Michaels. I would love to have a positive one [laughs] on Bret Hart. To be able to show the highs and the successes. And look, you'll want to get behind the scenes and see the person,” Prichard would say. “Shawn Michaels is the most misunderstood guy in the business because of his early reputation that he had deserved--very much deserved--in his early years but has come full circle and is an incredible life story of success to hitting rock bottom to making a comeback. I think Shawn Michaels would be next.”
While there have been many DVD releases on Shawn Michaels and his career, the advent of the WWE Network allows for much more control and the ability to take more time exploring the certain aspects of the subject of a documentary, as is apparent by the new Undertaker documentary, Undertaker: The Last Ride.
