Shawn Michaels Claims He Does Some Writing For WWE NXT TV, Talks Getting Advice From Triple H
In a recent interview on the E&C Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE Hall Of Famer, Shawn Michaels discussed his role in WWE NXT in more detail. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On getting advice from Triple H:
“I was never 6’5″, 235 [lbs.]. Do you know what I mean? And a guy like Aleister [Black] or a guy like Lars, I can help them to a point, but I’ve never been a bigger type [of]guy. Many times, I have to call Hunter and ask him because he works a different style. And I don’t know. I can throw some junk out there for you because I worked with big guys, but at the same time, I know my limitations. I’ve never been a 6’8″, 300-pound dude. And so, I had Mick [Foley] in there a month or a month-and-a-half ago. And it’s just about getting them as many different ideas. It doesn’t matter to me where they come from. As long as they get better, I don’t care if it comes from the dude next door.” Michaels continued, “if they advance, and they get better, and that gets them an opportunity at the main roster, that’s what we’re there to do, to help these guys move on.”
On writing for WWE NXT TV:
“To [Triple H] and I, clearly, [NXT] is his baby, but I mean, I’m all in. Yeah, they’ve got me hook, line, and sinker. And it’s funny because he kind of hired me like, ‘just stick your big toe in and see how you like it. Just do a couple of times a week.’ And then, of course, whatever it is, two years later, I’m full scale helping to write TVs and doing it all!” Michaels admitted, “I’m so far in, there’s no way I’m getting out and I have no desire to get out because it’s a blast. It really is.”
