WWE NXT Deadline 2023: LEGENDS open the show

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer and company legend Shawn Michaels appeared to start off WWE NXT Deadline 2023, followed shortly by CM Punk.

The reason that Punk showed up was part of his ongoing storyline as a free agent, whether he would sign with RAW, SmackDown or NXT.

Michaels, being the man behind NXT these days, was clearly trying to get Punk to join the gold brand, but after a pretty weird back and forth Punk’s music went off and the segment just kind of ended.
