Shawn Michaels recently took part in a media call, to promote NXT Vengeance Day this weekend. He discussed a number of topics, including the recent Vince McMahon scandal, William Regal’s cameo on television, Jordynne Grace, and more.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

On the recent Vince McMahon scandal:

“Michaels says the Vince McMahon situation is a “sad situation.” He said in NXT that they foster a safe environment & support the talent with a safe workplace and feel they do a fantastic job with it.”

“Asked if has had conversations with talents about the situation and a safe environment, Michaels said everyone is aware. He takes working with young talent seriously in all aspects of the business & want them to tell them the truth. He said everyone is excited about the future despite the situation. The windows have opened up and everyone is ready to move forward.”

On William Regal’s cameo on NXT television:

“Asked about William Regal returning to TV, Michaels said everyone was extremely excited about his brief cameo and has no doubt there will more of those in the future.”

On Jordynne Grace:

“Michaels said he has seen Jordynne Grace from afar & was curious if she was ever interested in coming to WWE/NXT but didn’t want to tamper. He said some things they weren’t allowed to consider in the past like those crossover moments have changed & is excited about the possibility of potentially working with talents that work elsewhere. He joked about arguing with HHH about those things happening on the main roster and not in NXT.”
