Shawn Michaels In Heated Black Lives Matter Debate At NXT In Your House

The Heartbreak Kid stood his ground during a heated backstage discussion at NXT TakeOver.

Whilst there is usually space for discussion in wrestling, it seems that, as in the rest of society, many are coming together around the Black Lives Matter movement.

Tempers are naturally high in society at the moment surrounding the issue, and it seems like they boiled over this past weekend before the NXT TakeOver: In Your House taping.

It is being reported by Fightful Select that a WWE producer got in to a heated discussion with Shawn Michaels before the event took place.

The producer is said to have argued that everyone is already treated the same in America, which angered Michaels who countered that systemic prejudice is still rife in society.

It is also said that many were not aware of the issue taking place, as both men involved worked alongside each other for the rest of TakeOver after the argument had happened.
