Shawn Michaels has been instrumental in developing new talent for WWE. After he joined as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center, Michaels is now the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative. With NXT under his wing, he recently expressed his excitement over NXT’s move to CW next year. However, he still gave his adoration to the previous partnership with USA Network.

During his media call ahead of the NXT Deadline, he spoke about his excitement over WWE’s partnership with The CW. However, the heartbreak kid reflected on how extraordinarily well things had been with the USA Network. He ultimately said that before turning a new leaf over, the NXT team wants a strong finish for their USA partnership.

That move is still a bit of ways off in 2024, but we’re still extremely excited about it. But again, the partnership that we’ve had with USA has just been phenomenal. They have been absolutely fantastic and supportive throughout the years. Certainly, I guess from my personal standpoint, I did a lot of stuff that got in trouble with the USA network and they were always fantastic for us. I can’t thank them enough for the partnership that even NXT has had over the past several years and look, we want to finish out strong in that partnership.

Getting back to the future of NXT on CW, he said that there is more to come when the NXT debut on CW gets closer.


Elsewhere during the conversation, Michaels also spoke about a number of things, such as Bron Breakker’s eventual debut on the main roster as well as the company’s future after CM Punk’s return.

Michaels is currently looking forward to Saturday’s NXT Deadline, which will show a number of formidable stars taking on each other over key titles. Do you think NXT’s move on CW is going to be as bombastic as the USA stint has been? Let us know in the comments below!
