WWE Chairman Vince McMahon oversees everything that goes on in the company, right down to the most minute of details. He is also behind the recent mass releases in NXT, actions Triple H has no say in whatsoever. McMahon also has his own vision for NXT and it will result in significant changes for the brand.

As part of WWE’s new vision for the company, the company is moving away from recruiting indie wrestlers and is focusing on hiring attractive people instead. This was reflected in the latest batch of talents hired during the Las Vegas tryouts.

While speaking to TalkSport, Samoa Joe asked about the current directive of the company when it came to hiring new talents. Joe stated that directive changes often and Vince McMahon gives the orders from the top. The company is currently looking for younger and more athletic talents.

“There have been different cycles where different types of athletes come in. Everything from independent talents come in to just straight up athletes; these directives change and they shift basically on the needs of the company. The directive right now is probably a little bit younger and looking for a little more athletic, which isn’t terrible whatsoever, but that directive will invariably shift as the needs as the company shifts. So yeah, there is a directive, it comes from Vince, we all follow it and we get the job done for him. We’re happy to do so.”


It was said that Vince McMahon sees NXT as the future of the company as well. It remains to be seen how the latest batch of talents will fare in the company’s new vision for NXT.
