NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin recently appeared on the Gorilla Position podcast. The ‘Irish Ace’ discussed a litany of topics from his career in WWE thus far, including his relationship with Shawn Michaels. HBK reportedly is ‘running’ NXT UK at this present time, and the project has been in his hands over the past year at least.
“Yeah, he comes over for all the tapings and he’s very much hands on as a producer” Devlin revealed during the interview with Gorilla Position. “And he’s on the headset backstage for the whole show. Triple H comes over for the bigger ones for like NXT UK Takeover and things that you’re seeing there. But obviously, he’s the busiest man in wrestling. so yeah. He can’t come over every single month.”
Devlin was also asked what it was like having someone the caliber of HBK steering the ship at NXT UK. “It’s a huge benefit having direction from him obviously” Devlin revealed. “When you get advice on how to do something from one of the greatest wrestlers that’s ever lived? You can kind of take it with confidence that it’s the right advice. You don’t have to like second guess his opinion a lot. Because he’s been there. He’s done it. He’s been to the top of the mountain. Shawn’s experienced everything probably that you can experience in wrestling. So you know that he’s not just saying things to say [it]. But he’s, he’s coming from a position of real knowledge.”
It was recently confirmed that NXT Takeover: Dublin has been postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The show has been moved from April 26th to October 25th, pending the outcome of the pandemic.
