Shawn Michaels Hopes To Start Running NXT Premium Live Events Outside Of The WWE Performance Center


WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels recently spoke with TV Insider about a number of pro-wrestling subjects, including his thoughts on the current state of NXT and how he hopes to start running events, specifically premium live events, outside of the Performance Center, which has been the brands main base for the last few years. Highlights from the interview are below.

On whether they will start running NXT premium live events outside of the Performance Center:

“Absolutely. As you mentioned, we started with the Florida loop, or the coconut loop, as we call them. We’ve briefly discussed getting out for our premium live events. Do we want to do that at the end of the year or start at the beginning of the new year? We had Stand & Deliver for WrestleMania weekend, which is the first time many of our talents were out of the Performance Center. It’s certainly something we want to get back to.”

How he wants talent to get a feel for traveling and working live events outside of Florida:

“We have every intention of doing that. We’re actually having talks on how we want to go about executing that. This will go beyond shows in the state of Florida for certainly premium live events but regular live events. As you know, that is part of the developmental process. They have to get out there and perform on the main roster all around the world. They might as well get their feet wet in NXT.”
