Shawn Michaels talks WWE talent who left for AEW

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and backstage member of staff for NXT Shawn Michaels recently discussed what it has been like seeing talent leaving the company.

Speaking to Denise Salcedo, the former WWE Champion revealed that he does miss the talent, but he is also happy that they’re happy.

‘I miss them. One of the things I always try to instill on all of them is ’˜your happiness, your contempt, your peace, is the most important thing to me’” Michaels began.

“Because I learned that, yes mine all happened in the WWE but when everything was set and done that’s why I think that leaving and walking away was so much easier for me than it was for everybody else” Michaels added.

“I got all the answers to the questions that I had coming into this line of work and as long as they are at peace with that, that’s cool” HBK noted.

“At the very least, I tell them ’˜if you’re not gonna be at peace with it, at least have a big bank account.’ At least it makes you feel better a little bit’ Michaels concluded.
