“This is a pretty fascinating piece of work, a 3-D carousel animation, and I’m proud to be the first guy launching it,” Michaels said of the NFT collection to Sports Illustrated. “My music is in there, my signature pose, and it highlights three different eras of my career. I’m the first one, which makes me think back to that ladder match, that Iron Man match, that Hell in a Cell match—somebody’s got to go out there and test the waters. Like I was then, I’m honored to be first.

“I’m 57. This business was supposed to spit me out by now. It hasn’t. Instead, I’m the guy on these new NFT trading cards. It’s wild. I was a kid who grew up reading the wrestling magazines and loving watching Southwest Championship Wrestling. I’ve gone through every aspect of this business, and now, as a coach, I get to experience it all again,” HBK added.

WWE also has its own NFT Marketplace, Moonsault, and has had frequent NFT drops, to coincide with pay-per-views.
