Triple H took part in a conference call today in advance of NXT TakeOver: War Games II!
While WWE’s Survivor Series is this Sunday from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, first will come NXT TakeOver: War Games II on Saturday night at 7PM EST on the WWE Network.
In anticipation of the event, WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, Live Events and Creative Triple H participated in a conference call today to discuss the show and field questions. Here are some highlights (check out the card here):
- Triple H discusses his recent surgery and says everything went well, now it’s all about rehab. He also confirms he will be at TakeOver and then runs down the card, then points out Superstars who aren’t even booked to show how stacked the NXT roster currently is.
- He brings up NXT UK and how excited he is for the product, teasing there will be more coming next year
- Hunter speaks on this year’s War Games and moving to the traditional 4-on-4 format then states the event will be a brand moving forward
- He’s asked about The Velveteen Dream and talks about how the Performance Center has helped numerous talents absorb information and then be able to use it, also noting Pete Dunne “gets it”
- As for spreading further internationally, Triple H says the recent Germany tryouts went very well and speaks again about wanting to create a global pipeline so that performers don’t have to work on the indies. He then says there will be announcements early next year
- With the strength of the NXT brand, Hunter speaks about how some Superstars may not go up to the main roster and could become mainstays in NXT at this point. He also says Superstars who aren’t being used on the main roster may come back as well
- Triple H is asked about TakeOver only having four matches on the card, to which he explains that War Games needs time and the 2/3 Falls Match needs time so it was agreed upon to just keep it at four matches
- With regards to the future of NXT UK, HHH states that goal is to eventually make it what NXT is here. Also, they will be competing during WrestleMania week and could also pop up on NXT like Pete Dunne or Moustache Mountain has
