Shawn Michaels Shuts Down Possibility Of Major NXT Change

Shawn Michaels NXT

Shawn Michaels would not support a change to the NXT brand that some WWE fans might like to see.

The WWE NXT brand has been based out of the WWE Performance Center for the past three years. It allows the WWE NXT brand to have their superstars perform in the same building where they train and learn to be WWE superstars.

Based on recent comments from NXT’s boss Shawn Michaels, moving the NXT television show isn’t going to happen any time soon.

During a media conference call ahead of the NXT Heatwave PLE, WWE’s Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels explained why he likes NXT being in Orlando.

“I think you always would love to kind of be out there all the time, but honestly, what is best -– what I believe for the product –- and I don’t know, at least for us right now, being in our home here in Orlando is, I think, fantastic.”

“I can’t say that there’s anything that I see in the foreseeable future that would, you know, where you could make sense doing that and justify doing it when it comes to a certainly from an income standpoint, I think.”

Shawn Michaels Loves Not Being Involved In Some Major WWE Decisions

As he continued, Michaels made it clear that he was glad about how he gets to focus on leading the NXT brand rather than making other decisions in the company.

“That’s one of the great things I love about not being high level is I don’t have to think about that stuff and I get to focus on NXT. We’re thrilled about getting out there with the PLEs.”

In the main event of NXT Heatwave in Toronto, Ethan Page left the show as the NXT Champion after taking Trick Williams’ Trick Shot knee and Page landed on top of Je’Von Evans. The fourth man in the match, Shawn Spears, held onto Trick to prevent him from breaking up the pin as Page covered Evans for the win.
