Shawn Michaels recently sat down with Scott Fishman of for a new interview. The WWE Hall of Famer was asked about the possibility of returning to traditional arenas for NXT shows. Here’s what Shawn Michaels had to say about NXT returning to traditional arenas.

“Absolutely. As you mentioned, we started with the Florida loop, or the coconut loop, as we call them. We’ve briefly discussed getting out for our premium live events. Do we want to do that at the end of the year or start at the beginning of the new year?

We had Stand & Deliver for WrestleMania weekend, which is the first time many of our talents were out of the Performance Center. It’s certainly something we want to get back to. We have every intention of doing that.

We’re actually having talks on how we want to go about executing that. This will go beyond shows in the state of Florida for certainly premium live events but regular live events. As you know, that is part of the developmental process. They have to get out there and perform on the main roster all around the world. They might as well get their feet wet in NXT.”

NXT Halloween Havoc takes place this Saturday, and Ringside News will have complete coverage of the premium live event. You can check out the card for Halloween Havoc right here.
