For the last few months or so NXT, the developmental brand of WWE, has been experiencing somewhat of a lull per se. Ever since the brand extension, the brand named ”NXT” has not been living up to the standards it has set in the past.
Surprisingly, ”The Game” Triple H recently admitted in a media call that he is unhappy with the current state of NXT.
While the brand split has done wonders for both WWE SmackDown Live (to a great extent) and WWE Raw (not so much), it has left the developmental brand of WWE hanging out to dry. With the recent call-ups with the likes of Finn Balor, Bayley, Alexa Bliss; NXT is left with a void that has become difficult for the officials and talents to fill.
Triple H recently participated in a media call prior to NXT TakeOver: San Antonio. He admitted publicly that he was not happy with the current state of NXT.
During the call, Triple H was also quoted as saying:
“I’m not happy with where it is right now by far. I want it to be much better than it is, but it’s a rebuilding process. All these things going on, they all make changes in the ecosystem. Where everything lands at the end of the day is a moving target”
Triple H also said that they were currently in a rebuilding stage for NXT and mentioned that they were targeting for some changes to the show:
“There are some things and some changes that I’m hopeful will happen sooner than later that will expand it and make the show better”
With the Royal Rumble this Sunday, one has to wonder what state NXT will be in after the PPV. It is possible that some of the talents from NXT might get a call-up to the main roster and those talents might be surprise entrants in the Rumble Match.
This Saturday, WWE NXT TakeOver: San Antonio event will air live on the WWE Network headlined by ”The Glorious” Bobby Roode challenging ”The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura for the biggest prize in the NXT Universe, the NXT Heavyweight Title.
While ”The Empress of Tomorrow” Asuka will face three challengers and try to retain her spot atop the NXT Women’s Division.
