Triple H has provided an update on plans for the launch of the NXT Europe brand, following the end of NXT UK.
In August 2022, WWE announced that NXT UK would be going on a hiatus, revealing that a new NXT Europe brand would be launched in 2023.
In an interview with Variety, Triple H noted that there has been a lot of progress on plans for the brand.
Discussing his hopes for the roster, Triple H said:
“There’s been a lot of progress on it. We are very excited about the prospect of taking NXT in a larger global direction.
“I would like to be able to find the best athletes and the largest personalities and the most entertaining people from every place in the world, and bring them into what we do.
“Because when you begin to create those characters and those stars from every region, those regions become more engaged in what we do.
“If you can begin to go to all these places, and begin to find athletes there that can resonate on a global stage, some will make it big, some will make it small, some won’t make it at all.
“But that Indian talent, let’s say, that you have that main events WrestleMania and is a native of that country, that wholesale changes how (that country) views the product.”
“NXT UK was based mostly on independent wrestling workers, guys that worked their way up and found their way to us.
“We’re starting the process there doing the same thing we’re doing here. There isn’t an NCAA collegiate level of athletics in Europe, but there’s a lot of athletes that are training in a lot of places like Loughborough or whatever, for specific sports.
“We’re beginning to engage with them now and finding the same interest level that we’re finding in NCAA athletes here.”
The NXT UK men’s, women’s and tag team titles were all unified with their NXT US counterparts at the September 2022 World’s Collide event, after WWE released numerous NXT UK stars.
