WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels spoke with Cathy Kelley on Facebook immediately following Saturday night’s NXT Takeover Orlando special, and below are some interview highlights. You can watch the full interview via WWE’s official Facebook page.

On Aleister Black:

“I know of his former career. He’s a strange cat and he has an unbelievable future. He’ll be unlike anything we’ve seen in a really long time.”

On The Authors of Pain:

“What blew me away is that they were pushed to the limit and they handled it. They’ve been rushed to the top and haven’t even hit their stride yet. They fought two great teams and did pretty darn well.”

On Bobby Roode vs. Shinsuke Nakamura:

“Their entrances were pretty cool. You save your best for Wrestlemania and they took it up a notch. Their match was unlike anything we’ve seen in a long time, and you would expect no less than these two guys. Bobby proved to me that he isn’t a flash in the pan. I don’t think Bobby has hit his stride either. He looked liked he belonged. It was a real war.”
