Shawn Michaels is currently on the road with NXT and took a few minutes to talk with Kayla Braxton on WWE’s Facebook page. When asked about NXT standouts Shawn Michaels had the following to say:
“My goodness, with the girls of course you’ve got Ember Moon and Asuka who are phenomenal. Nikki Cross, but then, again, there are some sleepers out there, like Sage Beckett and Abbey Laith, I think there’s so much depth here.”
Ember Moon and Asuka will face off against each other for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III on August 19th.
Abbey Laith and Sage Miller, two of the newest WWE signees will both be participants in the upcoming Mae Young Classic tournament which is set to air on the WWE Network on August 28th on demand.
