WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels has done lot for the business, both as a competitor and in a backstage role in NXT. Michaels is viewed as a father figure in NXT, as he helps shape the superstars of tomorrow for an eventual main roster call-up. Michaels also works closely with Triple H when it comes to producing NXT television every week. Now it seems Michaels explained the whole TV process in NXT.

Following Vince McMahon’s retirement back in July of this year, Triple H took over as head of Creative. On the other hand, Shawn Michaels took charge of everything that goes on NXT, but that doesn’t mean The Game still isn’t involved with NXT.

While speaking on the Culture State podcast, The Heartbreak Kid finally explained the television creation process in NXT, revealing both his and Triple H’s rules when it comes to shaping future generations of superstars.

“From a weekly television standpoint, what we do on ‘NXT’ is more or less my ballpark. Hunter always checks in and knows who the people are. He obviously watches the show, he sees the people that appear to have promise in his sight and in ours as well. I think he takes a mental note of who he sees and what he sees in them, and I’m sure he makes his crew aware of it as well. And then whenever those times come when they feel like they’re ready for a call-up or they see a need that they might have, that’s when they would give us a call.”


Shawn Michaels also recently stated that he will never wrestle again. Michaels is fully invested in his current role in NXT and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Fans are certainly eager to see what Michaels and Triple H have planned for fans next.
