Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, Paul Levesque (Triple H), has discussed WWE’s plans to expand into India.
This comes off the back of WWE taping the “Superstar Spectacle” show a couple of days ago which will air in India and on the WWE Network this Tuesday.
Speaking with The Hindu, Levesque said:
“The intent and desire is to come to India and recruit enough athletes. Certainly, there is a desire amongst Indian people for us to be on the ground as well. At some point, we would love to have a Performance Center, or more than one center, in India, have athletes train there and produce localized WWE content. When you see talents from your region succeed locally to get to the bigger stages, and to watch their careers develop, that is the goal. Because the only thing bigger than WWE in India is cricket. That’s something to be said.”
There had been rumblings that this is the start of the process to kick off an “NXT India” branch, but there’s been no confirmation of that yet. Triple H wanting a Performance Center there is a sign though.
