• Is Vince McMahon Happy With Shawn Michaels’ Work On NXT 2.0?
With Triple H being out of the picture right now due to his health issues, Shawn Michaels is taking care of a lot of backstage work in NXT 2.0.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon and other top WWE Officials are very happy with the work HBK has done on WWE’s developmental brand:
“They are very happy with Shawn Michaels right now, feeling he’s been under pressure to make stars fast with the changes in the show.
He made [Bron] Breakker, Carmela Hayes, [LA] Knight, Grayson Waller and Tony D’Angelo into stars very quickly.
It was noted that was not his job when he was hired, but it fell upon him when [Triple H] had his health issue and they feel he has great aptitude for the creative process and understanding of how to make stars and make key people stand out.”
