Shawn Michaels Open To X-Pac WWE NXT Run
X-Pac wrestling in WWE NXT? Shawn Michaels is open to the idea
X-Pac may not have competed in a WWE ring since 2002, but the former D-X and nWo member is still wrestling, having made multiple appearances for GCW in 2022.
With his Kliq-mates Triple H and Shawn Michaels in positions of power in WWE, an in-ring return for X-Pac is seemingly not out of the question, with Michaels telling Wrestling Inc. how he’d like to see the former 1-2-3 Kid in an NXT Ring:
"I know that he's been getting back in there, here and there," Michaels said. "I've got to tell you, he's in the best shape he's been in [for] a long, long time. He looks fantastic. Obviously, that would be something I'd have to run up the flagpole and everything, but talent would benefit from that so much. I know he'd have a blast, so look, if that is an option that we are allowed to explore, I'd jump all over it."
X-Pac - real name Sean Waltman - appeared on the November 29 edition of NXT to discuss the Iron Survivor Challenges, and Michaels commented on having Waltman around:
"We were all busy just trying to work," Michaels continued. "We can't just pick it up and do it off the cuff like we used to so by the time we did the panel and everything, he was really focused on helping us out to get that done… clearly we [benefit] as a program if we just have [him] doing anything for us."
