• Vince McMahon Impressed With 2 NXT Wrestlers, Shawn Michaels Comparison

According to Wrestlingnewsco, Vince McMahon has been impressed with Keith Lee and Matt Riddle’s work in NXT as of late and these two wrestlers are expected to end up on RAW or SmackDown one day.

Vince is impressed by Lee’s size and feels he could be a powerhouse heel on the main roster.

On the other hand, Vince compared Riddle to a young Shawn Michaels:

“Vince like guys like Shawn who have that rebel mentality and he sees some of Shawn in Matt. Matt can rub some people the wrong way but he’s a good guy and he will do great when Vince calls him up.

I think he’s a future World Champion. Vince will try to tweak him but his personality will get him far.”
