WWE Hall of Famer and NXT executive “The Heart Break Kid” Shawn Michaels took part in a media call to promote the WWE NXT Vengeance Day Premium Live Event. During the call, Michaels talked about a number of topics, including if he is interested in bringing in outside talents to the company.

Michaels said, “Well look, I’ll say this, and it’s one of those things where the friendship with Hunter and I gets tough to balance because I’ve always sort of seen her from afar and I’ve always wondered if she’d be interested in coming to NXT or coming to the WWE. My fault for never reaching out because I assume if you’re with another company, that’s not allowed, right? [laughs] It was great to see that door possible open and I don’t know, think about. So, yeah, to answer your question, I think some things that probably we were never even allowed to consider or look at in the past, is at least something that we can begin to look at and think about in the future. I for one am very excited about that, again, those are things on a corporate level that I don’t get the say so in. Very excited about that possibility. To your point, just to be able to — Look, there’s a number of different talent out there in different places like TNA, in Japan, in AAA, things of that nature to where it’d be great to get some of those really experienced people to swing by NXT for a little bit. But again, above my pay grade to answer, but I’ll tell you this much, I’m really interested in the possibilities and it certainly looks like — Everytime I get mad at Hunter, I go, ‘Oh so it’s okay for you, but it’s not okay for us?’ That’s not a real corporate angle really, but I try to use that as often as I can to see if I can get my way down here. It’s something I’m going to ask about in the not too distant future.”
