Shawn Michaels Comments On Vince McMahon's Previous Involvement In WWE NXT 2.0

Shawn Michaels talks about his time running NXT 2.0, and Vince McMahon’s involvement

When Triple H stepped away from NXT in 2021 and the brand eventually morphed into NXT 2.0, reports suggested this new NXT was being ran with Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard’s involvement.

NXT 2.0 is now firmly under the watchful eye of Shawn Michaels, and according to HBK himself in an interview with Bleacher Report, it always has been:

"When Hunter first left, it became all me, and certainly from a television standpoint," Michaels said. "Matt Bloom is the head coach and takes care of everything from the PC training standpoint, but when it came to NXT 2.0 television, that's something myself and my team took over creatively. I know a lot of people thought Vince and Bruce were doing that. I can promise you, they did not have the time to do NXT television. If it's good or if it's bad, that's on me.

"It's been a huge joy to run that show and work with these talents. Again, everyone was put in a real tough position, we all were, but that's where you learn to do things in WWE. That, to me, is a form of talent development, which is understanding that things can always change... around here and you have to adjust to that. The show always goes on. It was trial by fire for a lot of us, but it's been an absolutely fantastic experience.”
