Despite not wanting to return to the ring after WWE Crown Jewel, Shawn Michaels will continue to help young NXT talents, as confessed by HBK during an interview on E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness.
“When we came here, when we came to Florida just to visit, it was just this unbelievably infectious, positive environment. And then, we ended up moving here and I was around it a little more.
"And then, you have people asking me questions. And then, all-of-a-sudden, you’re back in, you are in this give and take and throwing stuff around, and yes, getting back into that creative process that we all enjoy so much.” Michaels continued, “It’s all of this preplanning that drives you. Performing it is great, but so much of the fun is just coming up with it and the process that you go through to come up with it.
"To sit there with your buddies and throw a bunch of stuff out there, and ‘This is good – let’s do that’, ‘no that doesn’t work’, and then, all-of-a-sudden, when you all hit on it, and everybody looks at each other like, ‘Ooh yeah, that’s it.’ And that’s certainly what I’ve found as I kept going in and out of there is that this generation was very into that, and even better is that desire to take it to another level.”
