Triple H spoke with Inside The Ropes while in attendance on Friday for the launch of the new Performance Center in the United Kingdom that was unveiled alongside Shawn Michaels Robbie Brookside, Matt Bloom, Finn Balor, Charlotte Flair, and the NXT UK roster.
This is where “The Game” spoke about how certain NXT UK stars will indeed make the eventual transition to the main roster. Also, there will be some talent who are used in both NXT UK and NXT.
“There are some talent here, that you might see come from the UK, that might move straight to RAW or SmackDown,” Triple H explained. “I think right now there’s sort of this perceived system of where it’s kinda – 1. RAW, 2. SmackDown, 3. NXT, 4. NXT UK. I don’t believe that, I believe that talent are talent and I believe they will sit where they sit, and I believe you’ll see talent over the next few years start coming up to Raw and SmackDown. And I think you’ll see them move back over in to NXT, or come back in to the NXT UK system. I think talent will begin to evolve and rotate through territories, so to speak.”
The future WWE Hall of Famer would continue by stating that he thinks there are some stars who will have more successful careers while rotating through the NXT developmental territories instead of just sending them to the main roster.
“I think there will be some talent that will be incredibly successful, will be global names, will be global, household names,” Triple H said, “that will probably never leave that NXT system because that’s their home base and that’s where they fit, and they’ll have incredibly successful, meaningful careers. And probably over those careers they’ll gravitate through different locations within the globe, maybe without never being on RAW or SmackDown, but that not being any lesser to their careers.”
