Shawn Michaels: NXT 2.0 talent are held to an unfair standard

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and backstage member of the NXT 2.0 staff Shawn Michaels recently discussed how he feels the talent on the brand are held to an “unfair” standard.

Speaking to, HBK said that “I will say, I think they get held to an unfair standard. Nobody likes change. I know that was very tough. I thought [WarGames] was a fantastic show.

“I’m so thankful for our veterans who go out there and deliver consistently like they always do. We have such faithful veterans that are out there and having to bring up an entirely new generation.

“We put a lot of our young guys in a really tough spot, we threw them in the deep end like we’ve been doing the last 10 weeks. They went out there and looked like they belonged” Michaels concluded.
