NXT is no longer Triple H’s product. In fact, the brand’s creative team now takes orders from RAW and SmackDown Executive Director Bruce Prichard. NXT 2.0 is WWE’s prelude to the main roster and not the alternative it once was.
Many within the industry are of the opinion that NXT was better when Triple H was in-charge of the product. Though Hunter had tremendous success with the black and gold brand, his product seemingly failed to impress Vince McMahon.
Former WWE star Lance Storm agreed during F4WOnline‘s Figure Four Daily that NXT was doing great as long as Triple H had the reigns to the brand. He dismissed the notion that WWE has no plans for the former champion.
“They should have left NXT on the Network. They should have left Hunter in charge of it. They should have left AEW alone, they wouldn’t have a failure on the record.”
Storm agreed with Alvarez that WWE should of let Triple H do his own thing with NXT. He said, “They would have the wonderful gold and black still happening, the great string of NXT TakeOvers. It would have been so much better.”
