Shawn Michaels was brought in by Triple H to see how the tapings worked

Triple H had an NXT Takeover: Toronto media call recently, which you can listen to in its entirety below:

Nick Hausman of Wrestlezone asked The Game about Shawn Michaels’ role at the Performance Center.

Kevin Nash had revealed on The Kevin Gill Show that Shawn Michaels had taken over as the head coach of the Performance Center. Triple H started off by rubbishing the claim and confirmed that Matt Bloom was still very much the head coach of the Performance Center. 

Regarding Michaels in the Performance Center, Triple H said that he didn’t wish to discuss Michaels’ life and his relocation. He confirmed, however, that there certainly were plans in place for HBK in the future. Triple H said that there are a lot of things which the former World Champion could do.

He proceeded to praise Michaels for knowing all there was to know about being a top guy. He added that the role he’d have picked for Michaels would be for him to mentor budding talents in their transformation to stars. 

In the media call, Triple H also spoke about the raid of NXT to the main roster and about starting the women’s division all over again. He confirmed in the call that getting Mickie James for NXT Takeover: Toronto was not a "consolation prize" for not being able to get Trish Stratus, and that she was the originally intended opponent for Asuka.

He said that one of the reasons behind calling James for a title match at Takeover was because he wanted the younger up-and-coming talent to establish themselves.

You can listen to Triple H’s previous media conference call for NXT Takeover: Dallas right before Wrestlemania 32 this year and see the differences and changes that  have occurred since:
