In a recent interview with Denise Salcedo, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels discussed several topics, including the quick turnaround from the black and gold WWE NXT brand to the new-style WWE NXT 2.0.

“I think the biggest thing was that I didn’t know that I was going to be the one having to do everything, I was going to hopefully assist Hunter and put into place what he wanted us to put into place, it came a bit quick obviously. For the last 35 years that I’ve been with the WWE, when they make a decision, it’s done, it’s quick, they are so efficient, so quick and they just don’t sit and wait around. I think that was probably the biggest adjustment, I think we had probably three weeks and we didn’t have a whole lot of information. By the time we got the information, it was coming down by the last week and we went ahead and applied everything that we could.

It’s fun, it’s a nervous excitement, you don’t really know what to expect, but you’re looking at something where there’s no roadmap to doing it, so you have to try and figure it out. I still enjoy that kind of stuff. Hunter and I, much like the DX days, we went out there not having any idea what we were going to do, we were just going to go out there and have fun and enjoy doing it, that’s how this kind of started from the get go, it would have been a lot easier had he been there the entire time to assist, that’s for sure.”
