Ava Raine has acted as a general manager of sorts on recent episodes of NXT, making matches and helping out Shawn Michaels in keeping things in order.
Ava has been trying to find her well on television ever since the Dyad split and Joe Gacy has been laying his roots elsewhere.
Shawn Michaels has appreciated the help provided by Ava.
“Yeah, well, look, I got to say. Ava has been spending a lot of time, she comes and sees me a lot and brings me a lot of information about these matches and I got to tell you, I think she’s done a really great job. I think we all know the Bloodline that Ava comes from, very astute in this business to say the least. She’s been incredibly helpful with assisting me with all of the stuff I have to do. I’ll say this, she is still part of the NXT roster, and a big part of it and someone that we always love and enjoy having on NXT programming. She certainly seems to be helping me out a great deal, so I got to be honest, with her business acumen and her sort of real natural feel for this line of work, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the assistance. Nothing would thrill me more than to take more off my hands in the future, but we’ll have to see how that goes," Michaels said on the NXT Deadline media call.
Ava has only wrestled a handful of times in NXT and has not competed since NXT Heatwave in August when she lost to Ivy Nile.
