Shawn Michaels Talks Working Creative With Triple H, Mimicking Elvis



For all the flak the Kliq received about “running the show” and influencing the book during their heyday of the 90s, it seems fitting that Triple H and Shawn Michaels are now running the show for WWE creatively.

Michaels sat down to speak with Sports Illustrated recently about his excitement about what’s to come, and working with his best friend. He also chatted about Elvis and working with the talent in NXT.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On his signature in-ring pose: “I stole that from Elvis. Elvis was a really big influence early in my career … I developed a real appreciation for the work that Elvis did. And I always loved that pose I would see Elvis do at the end of his concerts. He wouldn’t flex, which I felt comfortable doing, but he’d use that stance, so I have to give the King of Rock and Roll the credit for that one.”

On working in NXT: “I think people saw my passion and my love for this when I wrestled. The talent I work with now, I think they see that now, too. I don’t have to be here; I want to be here. And I want them to be great. I want them to experience the life I have. My father gave me the greatest piece of advice, which was ‘Make a great living doing something you enjoy.’ This is the greatest job in the world. It was my dream, and the more I can help others live their dreams, it makes me want to do it even more.”

On Hunter being in charge of WWE Creative: “We hope now that we can put together a really powerful one-two punch between NXT and the main roster that’s going to drive WWE to even greater heights. He wants to stick to the mission statement, which is to be the greatest sports entertainment company on the face of the earth. I’m going to do everything here to help, and he’ll have the entire support of NXT. We’re all excited for the future.”
