Shawn Michaels Involved in Backstage Altercation at NXT Takeover

Shawn Michaels is arguably one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, but in recent years he has found his place alongside Triple H working backstage in WWE.

The former World Champion has also become one of the main stars behind NXT UK, but on Sunday night his focus was on Takeover: In Your House, where he was once again one of the stars who was helping to put the show together behind the scenes.

According to a report by Fightful, Michaels was backstage at the show and was involved in an altercation with an unnamed producer after they made a comment about the current issues in America.

“Shawn Michaels was in a heated debate at NXT Takeover In Your House ahead of the show. Michaels was discussing the current social climate with another producer, when said producer mentioned that everyone already gets treated the same.”

“This didn’t sit well with Michaels, we’re told, who broke down systematic prejudice and inequality to the persona in a very heated discussion.”

The Heartbreak Kid isn’t usually someone who loses his cool, but this just shows that tensions are running high everywhere at present and many stars are venting their frustrations at each other.
