Triple H Discusses Wanting To Turn NXT Global Expansion Into World Cup Scenario WWE

Triple H has discussed wanting to turn NXT’s global expansion into a world cup scenario.

Since the announcement of NXT Europe and hiatus for NXT UK, it has been the dawning of a new era.

That new era is coming with several question marks surrounding it though.

Since taking over WWE creative and talent relations, Triple H has been at the forefront of everything the company has been striving to achieve including the expansion of his brainchild.

Speaking with LAD Bible TV, The Game discussed the plans for NXT’s global expansion and what he would like to see accomplished.

He said:

“For the last ten years or so, we’ve created that recruiting effort and started a brand called NXT. NXT for us is that academy model. So if RAW and SmackDown are the NFL for Football, NXT is collegiate athletics. We had a small brand here called NXT UK, we were headed down this road prior to the pandemic, which put a halt on it but we just shot that brand down because we’re gonna relaunch it in 2023 as NXT Europe and try to blow it up bigger. The intent will be to take NXT Europe and bring that around the world. So, NXT Europe, NXT Australia, NXT South Africa, South America, Mexico, [we will] eventually build that into a global system that will lead to almost a World Cup scenario. The World Cup finals for NXT will one year be in London, the next year maybe Mexico City, the year after that maybe…and all the while really what you’re doing is building this, you’re building a fanbase for college football while you’re building stars for the major leagues which is Raw, SmackDown, WrestleMania, right. In India right now, we are the second biggest sport in India outside of Cricket which is a religious thing. It’s massive already but imagine that scale when we have a brand on the ground of native Indian people having their own brand. [Let’s say] one of them branches out and goes to Raw or goes to SmackDown, headlines WrestleMania, it’s game-changing.”

In this same interview, Triple H reflected on being threatened to be fired as part of a controversial faction in WWE.
