Triple H is a busy man and it seems his work never ends. As the leading force behind the NXT brands, “The Game” is in the UK for NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool which airs later today. He has also additionally announced the new WWE UK Performance Center with the help of British Strong Style members Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate and Trent Seven.
While talking to reporters for News Australia, Triple H teased that Australia would have their own NXT branch within the next four to five years- but seems to suggest in could happen even sooner.
Triple H first confirmed that WWE has their eyes on the Australian wrestling scene and they are looking to confirm whether it would be the right decision to expand there.
“It depends on the passion as to where we go first.
“The passion was so strong here in the UK and there was a massive base.
“Australia has a good scene happening there right now. We’re obviously keeping an eye on it and working with it.
“But, these are large commitments, so it’s about when we have the level of interest and the belief that there are enough people there for it to succeed.”
“We can train people anywhere. But once that boils up to enough passion, enough people and enough interest in the marketplace, then we will go there and reward that passion. Once that happens in Australia, we can start what we’re doing here — which is train 30-50 talents.
“We get to put a brand on the ground. We get to put an NXT Australia there. We get to make that scene happen there. I do think that’s a strong possibility.”
From here, he would give an estimation of when fans could potentially expect Australia to get their own branch- adding that in this time they would hopefully expand to other places too.
“We’re running the idea across the world, in a lot of different places at the same time, it just comes down to which place boils up first.
“I’d love to do it everywhere now, but it just takes time, effort and people.
“Our commitment is there and it’s just a matter of time. Hopefully in between four to five years we’re in Australia and a lot of places.”
