Shawn Michaels with high praise for Trick Williams following WWE SmackDown cameo

On the recent episode of Battleground Podcast, the Senior Vice President of Talent Development Creative, Shawn Michaels, praised Williams on his cameo in SmackDown.

He said, “You watch Trick, to step out of the shadow of Carmelo Hayes and then begin to start something that’s almost like a groundswell that we haven’t seen before. It’s when it happens from the very beginning, it’s ever organic and you watch it just get bigger and bigger.”

He added, “Then to watch him do that, and to get to be a part of it to help guide and nurture along the way has just been a sheer joy for me to the both of them. When you see him run out on SmackDown and listen to the entire arena chanting, ‘Whoop that Trick,’ that’s when you know. It’s something even bigger than I think he imagined.”
