Shawn Michaels is finally transitioning into his role in WWE’s developmental brand.

The WWE Hall of Famer has had a storied career in the professional industry and will go down as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.

He has held every big championship that WWE has to offer and had some classic matches as well as a feud with the biggest names in pro wrestling. Those names would include The Undertaker, Steve Austin, Triple H, and Ric Flair.

Michaels is a four-time world champion having held the WWF Championship three times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble winner, the first WWF Grand Slam Champion and the fourth WWF Triple Crown Champion as well as a 2011 WWE Hall of Fame inductee.

Michaels headlined major pay-per-view events between 1989 and 2010, closing the company's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, five times.

The WWE Hall of Famer serves as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida and an NXT agent. He recently posted a series of videos on social media which led to him challenging former NXT Tag Team Champion Johnny Gargano to an "Ab-Off" at the NXT Takeover: War Games special.

We reported on the website earlier that the sports entertainment company has announced that the WWE Hall of Famer will be the special guest referee for the upcoming NXT Title match that will see champion Drew McIntyre defend the title against former ROH World Champion Adam Cole at the November 17th NXT live event, which will be the night before NXT TakeOver: War Games.
