Well he's not questionable at drawing. He's poor. 1996 was a bunch of great matches with money swirling the drain in the meantime. I think Bret is a better draw than Shawn, because at least he has a region where he's massive even if he's a meh draw everywhere else.
And I would certainly call Angle significantly better on the mic than HBK. I don't think that's close at all. I would call Taker and Bret better talkers as well, but by thinner margins.
HBK can make a valid argument against truly anyone in the ring, which makes him tough to assess because he's one-dimensional but he's amazing in that one dimension and it's one of the big ones to be great at.
