• “Hunter and I are actually doing all the things that Vince did with us back in the 90s” – Shawn Michaels
During an interview on the latest episode of ‘WWE After The Bell’ with Corey Graves, Old School WWF Legend Shawn Michaels talked about him and his D-Generation X buddy Triple H running things in WWE these days.
While’s Shawn’s new official position is called ‘Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative’, Triple H is officially named the Chief Content Officer.
Here’s what HBK had to say about their direction going forward:
“I’ll be honest, a lot of it is bringing back some people that I felt I was gonna miss, that I had a joy working with here that I believe are talented and can contribute to the WWE. That’s been one of the biggest things.
The other thing is the excitement and the excitement about moving forward. Morale, you can’t beat that.
I’ll say this. Hunter and I are actually doing all the things that Vince did with us back in the 90s. He was there. He was fun. He was all the things that I think people enjoy about us. That’s where we learned it from, to be perfectly honest.
He was a fantastic boss. He was a great deal of fun to be around. He wanted to teach. He wanted to share. He was ever so passionate about this.”
‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1988 until 1998 and again (for the renamed WWE) from 2002 until he officially retired in 2010.
The Showstopper eventually came out of retirement for one match on November 2nd 2018 at the WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia.
