WWE currently has plans of expanding their horizons and overall reach, with their current destination being India. The company will be holding the upcoming WWE Superstar Spectacle in a few days, which will feature Indian talents.
While speaking to The Hindu, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy and Development, Triple H, discussed what plans WWE has for India. He was asked whether NXT India will become a reality.
Triple H said that there certainly is a lot of intent and desire to make NXT India a reality. He added that the company would love to have more than one Performance Center in India, in order to train talents and prodce localized content there.
“The intent and desire is to come to India and recruit enough athletes. Certainly, there is a desire amongst Indian people for us to be on the ground as well. At some point, we would love to have a Performance Center, or more than one center, in India, have athletes train there and produce localized WWE content. When you see talents from your region succeed locally to get to the bigger stages, and to watch their careers develop, that is the goal. Because the only thing bigger than WWE in India is cricket. That’s something to be said,”
WWE Superstar Spectacle will be taking place on January 26th and is likely just the beginning of a long-term plan for India.
