WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will appear on the next episode of NXT.
Michaels is now a trainer and producer with WWE NXT. While he has appeared on NXT TV in that capacity, usually on backstage segments or breaking up brawls – notably the first one between Pat McAfee and Adam Cole, he isn’t usually advertised for the show.
According to the announcement, Michaels will be hosting a face-to-face meeting between the NXT Champion Finn Balor and his TakeOver opponent, Kyle O’Reilly.
O’Reilly won the first ever NXT Gauntlet Eliminator match last Wednesday to win the right to challenge for Balor’s title during TakeOver: 31 on October 4.
Michaels confirmed his appearance on this Wednesday’s show by retweeting WWE NXT’s announcement and saying he couldn’t miss the fun.
