The highly anticipated NXT UK finally premiered on the WWE Network yesterday, the next step in Triple H’s long-term plans for global development of not just NXT, but the company overall.
Previously, ‘The Game’ has spoken about his vision of opening something similar to the wrestling territory days of old, but with WWE having Performance Centers across different countries. Now that NXT UK has launched, it looks like the company has already been working on its next possible venture.

As was noted back in late-August, the company will be holding tryouts in Cologne in November (read that here) and it’s being said the reason for doing it is to begin building for a new brand.
We’ve also noted how WWE is interested in signing Austrian star WALTER, however due to his commitments with Germany’s wXw it would only be likely should he sign a deal similar to NXT UK Superstars Pete Dunne or Tyler Bate (check that out here). Now of course, this would allow the company to sign WALTER while he’s able to be home more, which was reportedly also a sticking point.
