The WWE universe is well familiar with the friendship between Triple H and Shawn Michaels. They were part of the famous faction D-Generation X during their wrestling days and have also played foes on other occasions.
Currently, the two legends are focused on maximizing WWE’s potential as Triple H and Michaels are working as the Chief Content Officer and Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative respectively. During a recent interview on the Culture State podcast, The Heartbreak Kid explained how they have grown as colleagues.
He explained that though the Game is more focused on the main roster now, he keeps himself updated with the happenings in NXT.
“Hunter always checks in and knows who the people are. He obviously watches the show, he sees the people that appear to have promise in his sight and in ours as well. I think he takes a mental note of who he sees and what he sees in them, and I’m sure he makes his crew aware of it as well. And then whenever those times come when they feel like they’re ready for a call-up or they see a need that they might have, that’s when they would give us a call.”
Shawn Michaels On William Regal?
During a media call, Shawn Michaels, the head of NXT took a chance to speak on William Regal. He talked about how much he’d love to have him back and what he meant to NXT.
This is what Shawn Michaels said, “Right now, there is nothing official that I really have to announce. I will say this, we love Steve. We have a great deal of respect for Steven Regal and what he means to NXT and the WWE and wrestling at all levels. Nothing would thrill me more than to give you more information. Obviously, stay tuned because hopefully we’ll all know a little bit more as we get down the road. Honestly, right now, I’m the guy that has been reading it from you guys. That’s where we’re at for the time being.”
William Regal was fired from WWE earlier this year. He joined AEW, and became an integral part of AEW’s wrestling program, forming the Blackpool Combat Club. His final onscreen scene which is part of the storyline, involves MJF punching him in the back of the head, ending their association.
William Regal is due back in AEW in 2023, where he will take a backstage role. He will not be on screen for the entire year, due to an agreement between Tony Khan, William Regal, and potentially WWE.
