Triple H Comments On Former NXT Stars Joining AEW WWE

AEW’s roster has been growing significantly in recent months, with several former WWE names who were released from WWE jumping over to become All Elite.

There are currently six former NXT Champions on AEW’s active roster, among a bunch of other NXT stars. Triple H recently spoke to The Athletic, where he spoke about the numerous stars who have jumped from NXT to AEW.

He said:

“I like all those guys. They helped us get where we needed to get, and I’m thankful for it. The truth is there was a period of time where we were trying to build NXT. We built NXT. Then we were trying to build a brand that could get a television show and sustain it. All those names helped us get there. Whether anybody believed or not they fit on “Raw” or “SmackDown,” those aren’t necessarily my decisions solely, and they’re Vince’s (McMahon) decisions and fans’ decisions; and then, can we continue to do business with them?

“If they have great gigs, I’m happy for them. I stay in touch with almost all of them. I like to think they came into us here, we taught them a lot, got them to (a higher level) where they learned how to do television, how to be professionals and all that to be successful there. At some point, they might come back with us, or they might never because they don’t fit our brand as well, but that’s OK. They got us to certain places, and I’m thankful for that, and they’re thankful for that, and they’re off to different things. But that doesn’t stop the train. People leave football teams, move to different teams all the time, and it’s great.”

Triple H has not been present at NXT shows since his cardiac event last September, and officially announced his retirement from in-ring competition last month.

Former NXT Champion Adam Cole unsuccessfully challenged Adam Page for the AEW World Championship on last week’s AEW Rampage. For a list of all win/loss records for the AEW men’s roster in 2022, click here.
