WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels was interviewed today on The MMA Hour about NXT, the recent changes in the company, and the future.

Michaels was asked if he ever envisioned a day that Vince McMahon would not be running WWE:

“No. You can talk about it, but I never envisioned the time when Vince wasn’t there running stuff. All of us who have known him and worked with him for as long as we have, everyone knows, and I mean this lovingly, but he wanted to pass at his desk. That’s who he is. That’s how he’s built. I had every reason to believe that’s exactly what he was going to do. He always made jokes that, ‘If I die at Gorilla position, the show has to go on. Don’t move me. We got to get to seg 10 and 11 and finish the show.” You can talk about it, again, there’s lots of big talk in our line of work, but very rarely you see it get delivered on, but he’s always done what he’s felt was best for business.”

The full interview can be seen below. Toward the end of it, Michaels is asked about Bret Hart and the last time they met in person. Michaels was also asked if there's anything he would change about the Montreal Screwjob in 1997. Click below for the full interview.
