Report: Shawn Spears Helping As A Producer At NXT

Shawn Spears’ return to WWE NXT is not limited to his work as a member of the talent roster. He is reportedly helping as a producer.

Spears returned to WWE and made his re-debut on the February 27 episode of NXT.

Corey Brennan of Fightful (via Fightful Select) reports that, starting on the April 16 episode of WWE NXT, Shawn Spears started shadowing producer Johnny Moss. He helped to produce the women’s matches on Tuesday’s show. The NXT team of producers also includes Matt Bloom, Oney Lorcan, and Wesley Blake, among others.

Brennan writes that there is no word on whether Spears plans to fully transition to producing. In a previous interview with Fightful, he had said that his responsibilities in NXT expanded beyond the ring.

Shawn Spears On Returning To WWE

As noted, Shawn Spears discussed returning to WWE in an interview with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp. In one highlight, he discussed his responsibilities upon his return.

“My responsibilities at WWE are a little more than just in the ring. That is something that I don’t take lightly, and that is something that I am massively interested in. At the end of the day, what it boiled down to, after a conversation with my wife, I get to wake up every morning and see my son, and play with him and do whatever I need to do, and then I get to be home in my bed, sleeping beside my wife.

“So in the middle of that, the in-between that, if I get to go hang out and learn from the Shawn Michaels of our world or the Matt Blooms, I get to be a big kid in between those very important things, and I get to do that every day. Tell me how I made the wrong call. Tell me how I made a bad decision.”

WrestleZone will provide more information as it becomes available.
