Triple H & Shawn Michaels Comment On Letting MSK Be Themselves In WWE NXT


During Sunday night’s post-NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021 media scrum, WWE NXT executives Triple H and Shawn Michaels commented on letting WWE NXT champions MSK (Wes Lee and Nash Carter) be themselves in WWE NXT, not messing with their formula, and more. You can check out some highlights from the media scrum below:

Shawn Michaels not trying to change MSK in NXT: “I was talking to them yesterday and what they seem to enjoy about us is that we haven’t tried to change them. They’ve talked about how we let them be them and we allow them to have fun and enjoy themselves and get the most out of what they do. We try to make it a relaxed atmosphere and we don’t put anybody in a box around here, as best we can. We always knew what we liked when we were working and when we were challenged and encouraged. The best advice we ever got was ‘go out there. If you go too far, I’ll pull you back.’ That’s what we encourage people to do here. Go ahead and take risks and experiment. If we start asking to dial it back, we’re worried someone is going to kick us off the air. We encourage talent to make the most of themselves.”

Triple H noting on knowing when a character trait can be a crutch: “The other aspect is knowing when something is a crutch. A certain character trait or something that they do where you feel like, ‘They are better than this or they are beyond that, but that’s what they’ve done and are comfortable doing.’ That’s the hardest thing. That growth is difficult and hard to face. Sometimes, you have to push them outside of that comfort zone of them just wanting them to be what they’ve been before and you want to encourage them to get to a different place and doing something new. When you challenge them to that, I find that 99% of the time, they love that and they get out there.”
