Shawn Michaels Credits Kevin Nash As Big Factor In His Transition To Singles Star In WWE, Talks New WWE Untold Special (Video)


WWE Untold: Two Dudes With Attitudes is now available for subscribers of the WWE Network on Peacock.

To promote the release of the new special from WWE Network Original Documentaries, two-time WWE Hall of Fame legend "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels spoke with TMZ Sports for a new interview.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On Kevin Nash being a big part of his life and his transition to becoming a top singles WWE Superstar after his run as a tag-team competitor as part of The Rockers: "Kevin was a really big part of my life and really, obviously of my career in taking my singles career, and I would arguably say to that main event level. I felt like I was doing pretty darn well transitioning from Sherri to myself, but it was sort of in that Intercontinental Championship area and then I think as Kevin joined me in that time, we were able to take one another to another level within the WWE and when you’re in it doing it, it all happens very fast and you don’t really have a time to look back and think about that, so every time they come with these documentaries it’s always fun to be able to take some time and focus and talk about the appreciation you have for that time."

On the two being troublemakers around that time: "I think everybody would know by now there certainly were times where we brought the best from in-the-ring standpoint and taking ourselves to another level, but personally we were kind of troublemakers."

On the memory about the Two Dudes With Attitudes duo that stands out to him the most: "The way it came about. I had seen him on WCW as Vinnie Vegas. I can remember at that time coming off believing that Andrew Dice Clay was the funniest guy and he sort of had an aspect of that in Vinnie Vegas and seeing it and then of course quite some time later talking to Rick Steiner about it and him mentioning him and wanting to have a bodyguard."
