Shawn Michaels’ Advice To NXT Stars

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was interviewed by VultureHound at the launch of the new Performance Center in London, UK.

Mr. WrestleMania shared the valuable advice he offers to NXT stars.

“People say all this nice stuff about me, I’m a legend and an icon and all this, I was just a dude out there living my dream and a lot of it was just really me going out there, and somehow that seemed to make a difference. So don’t be afraid to give a little or a lot of yourself out there because fans seem to notice the difference when someone’s yanking your chain or when someone’s sincerely going out there and giving their all for you. So don’t be afraid to forego the show part and show them who you really are, because, as I said, fans seem to notice, which I think is cool.”

Royal Rumble Vacancies

With Finn Bálor, Sasha Banks and Kalisto now booked in separate title matches at Royal Rumble, the number of open spots for the Men’s and Women’s Elimination Matches have increased. Currently, there are 12 and 18 vacant slots for the Men’s and Women’s Rumble matches respectively.

‘Sober’ Adam Rose

Former Superstar Adam Rose (Raymond Leppan) recently took to Facebook to thank WWE for helping him get sober.

“I have never really spoken about this but the picture on the left is me at the height of my drug usage, 170lbs. The picture on the right is me as I am now after 415 days sober, 223 lbs. God has given a me a second chance and I don’t plan to waste it. I want to thank the @wwe for their help. They went above and beyond for me even when I know I didn’t deserve it. Stay tuned as I plan to share with you all my story and journey. #letgoletgod”
