Triple H ‘likes’ the talents who jumped ship from NXT to AEW

Last updated

Triple H, who is the executive vice president for Global Talent Strategy & Development of WWE, had been influential in upstaging the NXT brand. The stars like Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish have switched to AEW recently after gaining success in NXT. It seems ‘The Game’ is quite happy with their signings with AEW and he commented on them.

Triple H is happy how the stars developed

Hunter had founded NXT and has been at the helm of the product since 2012 before having to step away in September 2021 due to a health scare. During that time, NXT was rebranded as NXT 2.0. Speaking to The Athletic, he talked about the names who went from NXT/WWE to AEW.

Triple H 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.’
