• Shawn Michaels Is Open To DX Member Wrestling On NXT
During a recent media call for NXT Deadline, WWF Legend Shawn Michaels was asked about the possibility of his Kliq buddy, fellow D-Generation X member Sean Waltman wrestling a match in NXT.
X-Pac (fka The 1-2-3 Kid) is the only Kliq member who isn’t officially retired (not counting unofficial Kliq associate Justin Credible) and could bring additional viewers to WWE’s developmental brand and put over some of the young, up and coming wrestlers there.
Here’s what Shawn had to say about Waltman:
“I know he has been getting back in there, here and there, and I got to tell you he’s like in the best shape he’s been in a long, long time. He looks fantastic. Obviously that would be something I had to, run up the flag pole and everything.
Look, the talent would benefit from that so much. I know he has a blast. So that’s an option that we’re allowed to explore, I jump all over it. But I will. It’s amazing, we’re all buddies and all that stuff like it, but it pales to you guys, but he won’t say anything to me about it.
I’ll say we’re all busy trying to work. We can’t just pick it up and doing it off the cuff like we use to. When we did the panel and everything, he was really focused on helping us out and getting that done.
I got to tell you, that would be awesome. The talent would benefit from that so much, and clearly we do as a program. If we have Kid do anything with us, that’s a huge plus for NXT.”
The Heartbreak Kid is now officially the ‘Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative’ in WWE, which means he’s in charge of their NXT brand.
