Triple H has had serious progression for the WWE developmental system over the past few years- creating jobs for hundreds and generating millions of viewers whilst promoting the future of WWE.
During his call with the media following NXT TakeOver: War Games last night on the WWE Network, Triple H addressed the future of NXT UK and mentioned that the company will be having a massive announcement while they are in Liverpool next week for the new developmental brand.
He had the following to say:
“Right now, as far as shows, we are focusing on the UK right now. You’ll see a lot of involvement in them obviously around WrestleMania weekend, whether that be via Axxess and creating content. As we come into the beginning of the year, you’re going to see that brand begin to grow again. We’ll have a big announcement coming up. We have shows in Liverpool next week. It is hard to keep track, they are coming fast and furious. When we are in Liverpool, we’ll be making a big announcement about the first quarter of the year.”
Triple H also gave an insight into his desire to continue improving the NXT UK product, as it is still in its infancy and he isn’t completely happy with everything just yet.
“The brand has been wonderfully successful. It took us a while to get it rolling, we wanted it to be right. We had a few glitches on our side regarding the timing of it all, but now that it is up and running, Wednesday has been this massive destination site on the Network for NXT UK, NXT itself and 205 Live. The traffic has been amazing, the response to NXT UK is amazing, people love the show. It has the same gritty feel as NXT, yet feels wholly unique. It feels, while still in the same vein of what you love, slightly different, and that was the goal. I’m obviously not happy with everything about it, but we’ll change that. You’ll see that happen towards the beginning of the year.”
We have no verification on what the announcement by Triple H could be. As he alludes to the announcement affecting the first quarter of the year for NXT UK- there is some expectation that it could have to do with NXT UK specials. The company has yet to reveal the NXT UK Tag Team Championship, though this doesn’t exactly line up with Triple H’s comments above.
