HHH Says Talent Might Stay in NXT Without Going To Main Roster
Saturday, January 12, 2019
As previously reported, WWE COO
was in London celebrating the grand opening of the new WWE Performance Center in The UK. As seen below, Inside The Ropes attended the event and caught an in-depth interview with
where they asked him about his future aspirations concerning The NXT & NXT UK Talent.
confirmed that certain NXT UK Stars will indeed make the eventual transition to RAW or SmackDown LIVE, but along with that, certain stars will begin to rotate back through the various developmental territories they continue to establish.
"There are some talent here, that you might see come from the UK, that might move straight to RAW or SmackDown,"
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."
believes that some performers have reached their plateau of success rotating through The NXT developmental territories and hopes to give those individuals successful, meaningful careers without them ever having to transition to the cable network programs.
"I think there will be some talent that will be incredibly successful, will be global names, will be global, household names,"
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."
also discussed the importance of reinventing a character when the performer feels it's the necessary action to take, saying that it's no different than decades ago, when wrestlers would travel to a new territory and present their revamped character to an audience.
"I think it depends on the talent and the moment and I think it's no different than it was if you go back, 30 - 40 years, into the territory system in the US. No different,"
said. "You left one place, you went someplace else, sometimes you reinvented because you thought, 'What I'm doing is good, but here, I want to do something different, I want to make it something more.' And you reinvent, and you become something different."
