Triple H addresses FOX Sports 1 possibly airing WWE NXT

WWE NXT FS1 Fox Sports 1

There has been some speculation as to the future of WWE NXT on FOX Sports 1 due to WWE signing a big money deal with FOX to air SmackDown Live this fall.

Earlier this week, Triple H confirmed that WWE would air a studio show on FOX Sports 1 when the blue brand comes to the network later this year. When WWE signed a deal with FOX, many people thought that the yellow brand would come to FS1 as part of the deal with the show still airing on WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network.

While talking with the media on Friday night after the NXT TakeOver: New York event in Brooklyn, New York during a conference call, “The Game” was asked about this possibility.

“The opportunities are there for a lot of things. I know there’s a lot of interest in NXT as a brand. Both (NXT and NXT UK). There’s a lot of interest in it but it’s a very valuable commodity to the (WWE) Network as well. It’s the number one and number two most watched thing on the Network by far. Outside of pay-per-views,” said Triple H.

“Is (going to FOX/FS1) an opportunity? Absolutely. You see that with today when I was on FS1 and we announced the (studio show). It’ll be a recap show where they analyze different shows: Raw, SmackDown, and NXT. They’ll discuss all those shows. A cross between UFC Tonight and Talking Dead. They really want NXT to be a big piece of that, which shows you the interest level.”
