HBK Praises NXT UK Talent

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, who works with the NXT brand and talent development, recently spoke with The Daily Star and heaped much praise on WWE NXT UK talent Jordan Devlin.

“One guy who I didn’t know, or hadn’t seen was Jordan Devlin,” said Michaels.

“He was good when he came in, but now he is really starting to feel it.

“[Jordan] is oozing confidence. And I hate to pinpoint one person, but I have seen him grow exponentially.

“He is a real talented kid, and his ceiling is pretty darnn high.”

Devlin was trained by WWE Raw star Finn Balor, and is set to face Travis Banks at this weekend’s NXT UK Takeover Blackpool special. In addition to Devlin, HBK also offered high praise for fellow UK talents Wolfgang, Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne and Joe and Mark Coffey.
