“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels has pinpointed who he’s been impressed by the most in NXT UK, as well as some of the other standouts.

While speaking with reporters at the opening of the UK Performance Center, the NXT trainer gave a big seal of approval to Jordan Devlin. “He was good when he came in, but now he is really starting to feel it,” Michaels exclaimed.

“I hate to pinpoint one person, but I have seen him grow exponentially,” HBK added. “He is a real talented kid, and his ceiling is pretty darn high.”

Shawn also gave praise to Joe and Mark Coffey, while referring to Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate as “pretty damn special.”

As we previously reported, WWE’s new UK Performance Center is 17,000 square feet and houses two rings. At today’s opening, Triple H said it’s the first of many similar PCs they plan to build across the world as part of WWE’s “global localization strategy.” 

The announcement coincides with NXT UK’s first TakeOver, airing live on WWE Network tomorrow. Devlin is set to face-off against Travis Banks at the event.
