Shawn Michaels is the man in charge these days at NXT and the WWE Hall of Famer couldn’t say enough things about three men after their NXT Title match.
Bron Breakker put his NXT Championship on the line for the ninth time in his second reign as champion as he took on both JD McDonagh and Ilja Dragunov in the main event of Halloween Havoc.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Shawn Michaels indicated his happiness with the match and had praise for all three men involved:
“Bron gets better every single day and every single match. Being in the ring with those Dragunov and JD, that helps Bron grow, which he’s already doing in a staggering way.”
“Ilja Dragunov has this old-school pro wrestling aura. As a viewer, you see the passion and you know it’s real. That makes him stand out unlike anyone else on the show. JD is so good. From a talent standpoint, there isn’t anything he can’t do. That’s three guys visibly growing right in front of your eyes and climbing to the next level.”
Bron Breakker overcame both men in the bout to remain NXT Champion with the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rick Steiner now the competitor fourth on the list for combined days as that particular champion.
