Flash Morgan Webster comments on working with Shawn Michaels.
Throughout the history of the brand, WWE NXT UK was a show that had a lot of great minds behind it. One of those great minds was Shawn Michaels, who now serves as the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative in WWE.
In a recent interview with Fightful, Flash Morgan Webster commented on working empty arena tapings for NXT UK during the pandemic and how Shawn Michaels was helpful during that time.
"We called him, at the time, the Voice of God. You’d have these matches in complete silence and you’d hear nothing, then you finish your match and you don’t know if it was good. Then sometimes you’d [hear], ‘Great stuff, guys. You smashed it,’ and you’re like, ‘Oh, so it was good.’ Other times maybe he wanted you to slow down. Maybe he wanted a slower pace for the TV stuff and you thought maybe it should go a little bit faster because that’s what you do usually or that’s what you’d do to get the crowd on your side. Then he’d come on the top and go, ‘Yep, thanks. Good stuff,’ and you’re like, ‘Did we not get that right?’"
Webster wrestled his last match for WWE on the November 4, 2021 edition of WWE NXT UK.
NXT UK was shut down in 2022, as WWE revealed that they were planning to relaunch the brand as NXT Europe.
Elsewhere in the interview, Webster discussed The Dyad (Rip Fowler & Jagger Reid) and how the team should bet on themselves when their contract is up. Fans can learn more here.
