Shawn Michaels is the new Head of the WWE Performance Center



Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman recently appeared on The Kevin Gill Show, which is released every Monday. During the interview, they were asked about Shawn Michaels being a coach at the WWE Performance Center. We noted back in August that Michaels would be relocating to Orlando, FL to be a coach at the Performance Center due to Sara Amato and Adam Pearce moving up to the main roster and work as producers for both RAW and SmackDown Live brands. Michaels recently sold his ranch in Taylor County, TX so he could relocate.

Nash noted that Michaels had replaced Matt Bloom as the head trainer of the WWE training facility. “How many people, including the two guys to my left, know that the new Head of the WWE Performance Center is Shawn Michaels?” Nash asked. Hall noted that he knew that but Waltman couldn’t believe that Michaels would leave Texas and move to Florida.

Nash confirmed that Michaels was moving to Florida with his family and gave praise to Michaels for his wrestling psychology. “It's going to be a game changer,” Nash said. He added that he doesn’t know what WWE is paying him to be a trainer but that it has to be a lot for him to do a 9-5 job. Waltman added that whatever they are paying him is a bargain.
