Shawn Michaels is certainly one of the best in-ring performers to have ever graced a WWE ring. He was touted as Mr. WrestleMania and he truly lived up to the moniker. He also feels his coaching career is more meaningful than in-ring career.
Michaels has always exceeded expectations when it comes to performing in a match. Many say that he was so good inside the ring, that HBK could even have a believable match with a broomstick.
While speaking on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, Shawn Michaels talked about his role as a coach in NXT. Michaels stated that he feels his coaching career is more meaningful than his in-ring career.
“It’s so much more meaningful to me outside of the ring. Again, I got a great deal of joy from performing in my day. Working with these young men and women, I guess the biggest thing is appreciating their trust, and I don’t wanna mess that up. I can get emotional about that because they come in here, they’re not sure, they’re hungry, they wanna know the way to get to WrestleMania. I take that trust so incredibly seriously, I don’t wanna betray that. I love coming here to work, it is not hard for me to do this job.
I’m thankful I have a family that understands that they have to share me with the other love of my life, and that is NXT. The thing is, all the men and women who come through this place, they’re ready, they’re willing and again, you wanna honor that and do the best job for them. I’m humbled by that honesty, but I will also take that so incredibly seriously. I want for them, when they leave here, to have their experience with me to be something they look back on and to be something they’re pleased about. That’s what I hope we’re doing here.”
Shawn Michaels retired for good after his WrestleMania 26 match against The Undertaker, barring a tag team match at Crown Jewel 2018. It is doubtful that Shawn Michaels will ever come out of retirement ever again and that is for the best.
