Shawn Michaels Comments On Triple H’s Current Absence From NXT And Recent Health Issues

Shawn Michaels has confirmed that Triple H hasn’t returned to work for WWE yet as he’s still recovering from his cardiac health scare earlier this year.

Ahead of NXT WarGames, Shawn Michaels spoke with Jim Varsallone to discuss all things WWE NXT 2.0. When asked for an update regarding Triple H’s health and if he was back working alongside him at NXT, Michaels confirmed that wasn’t the case:

“No, like right now, for me. I feel like I’m an old nanny,” Shawn Michaels said. “But I’ve told him, ‘Look, I don’t care how good you are, you stay away, you get healthy, concentrate on you.’ And the thing is, he put in a fabulous team down here, and that’s why it’s able to continue on without him because he put phenomenal people in place, and I’m just the guy that gets to sort of expedite everything, and sort of run traffic so to speak, but the team he put in place was prepared for exactly these kinds of days, and it’s going on, and we want him to get healthy, and he doesn’t have anything to worry about. We will be here when it gets back.”

Based on Shawn Michaels’ comments, it doesn’t sound like Triple H will be back anytime soon.

You can catch NXT WarGames this Sunday night at 8 PM EST on Peacock or the WWE Network internationally; WrestleZone will also have live coverage of the event.
