Shawn Michaels: I Think Je’Von Evans Is Going To Shine At NXT Heatwave

Shawn Michaels sees big things for Je’Von Evans in the main event of NXT Heatwave later tonight.

WWE Vice President of Talent Development Shawn Michaels recently sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. When asked about tonight’s NXT Heatwave premium live event, Michaels put all the focus on tonight’s main event.

“We’re very excited to be in Toronto this weekend,” Shawn Michaels said. “Je’Von is in a new position, which we’re excited about, and we’re very fortunate to have him in the ring with three really talented guys. Trick has been there before. He’s still very new, but he understands what it’s like to be a big-time player. Then you have two veterans in Ethan Page and Shawn Spears. I think Je’Von is going to really shine, and I hope he enjoys the moment.

“Everybody here is trying to build their careers and build their futures, and I respect that, but I also want them to enjoy their time here. It’s like college. I never want someone to leave NXT and be disappointed that they hadn’t taken the time to enjoy it.”

When asked if he had any advice for the four competitors heading into tonight’s main event, Michaels said he just hopes they try to enjoy it.

“Before that iconic WrestleMania XII match, I heard the words, ‘Try to enjoy this, Shawn,’” Shawn Michaels said. “When I came back in 2002, I realized I didn’t enjoy it enough. And I made sure to enjoy that run to its fullest.

“Je’Von, Trick, Ethan, Spears, they’ve all got long careers in front of them. But this is a moment for each of those guys, all for different reasons, and I hope they enjoy this. It’s going to put a cap on a great show this Sunday.”
