The WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida has been churning out exciting new talent for the WWE over the last couple of years. Now, as reported by Ringside News, the wrestlers in development are about to get additional teaching from a WWE Hall of Famer.
Shawn Michaels has reportedly left his San Antonio base and has moved to Orlando to work at the Performance Center. He will replace Terry Taylor as the finishing coach and is leading a class for the NXT talents.
This class is designed to be one of the final steps before a main roster call up as it helps the wrestlers polish their act, putting the final touches in place to make them a star on their debut.
Knowing that Michaels is now a coach with help attract even more potential superstars to Orlando to work in WWE developmental. Michaels was known as the "Showstopper" in the ring for a reason and his ability to sell moves and make money at his relatively small size is unique in the business.
Michaels already has a coaching pedigree too. Daniel Brian is the biggest name to come through his wrestling school, but wrestlers like Brian Kendrick, Paul London and Lance Cade all had runs in the WWE after being trained by the Texas native.
After retiring from wrestling after Wrestlemania 25, Michaels has only made sporadic appearances with the company. He was last seen in a WWE ring at Wrestlemania 32 when he, along with Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley, beat down the now defunct League of Nations.
It is no secret that the McMahon's have tried to tempt Michaels out of retirement for one more match. With Shawn now back working with the WWE it will be interesting to see if he gets the bug to appear in the ring one last time in the future.
