Triple H claims WWE loves to explore global opportunities and shared what that means for NXT Europe.
The Hall of Famer was taking questions at the post Money In The Bank press conference, which saw a Premium Live Event take place in London for the first time in twenty years.
Similar to Backlash earlier this year, WWE performed in front of a hot sell-out crowd two nights in a row, for SmackDown and Money In The Bank.
Triple H faced the wrestling media after the event and was asked about Endeavor’s acquisition of WWE and what that mean to NXT Europe.
Following the closure of NXT UK last year, Triple H had stated the company was to launch NXT Europe.
Several of NXT UK’s Superstars are now in WWE and NXT, including Pretty Deadly who challenged for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships last Friday night.
The D-generation X Legend opened up about WWE being a global company, and that the “intent is still the same” to launch NXT Europe.
“It’s just slowed down the process I think … At some point, end of the year, last year, whatever it is, we said in ’23 it would happen.
Not having a crystal ball to see where everything was headed in that moment in time, obviously this transition with this merger with UFC with Endeavor and TKO, it’s changed the timeframe. But I think the intent is still the same.
“I mentioned under the premise of WrestleMania and premium live events going global, we’re a global company. We’re looking to be everywhere. And I think … there are a lot of amazing talents here, internationally. And we’d love to explore that and give them opportunities to shine on the biggest stage possible and see what we can do with that. It’s just going to take a little bit of time.”
WWE have run several Premium Live Events outside of North American in the last year, with strong ticket sales in Wales, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, and now London.
With the companies world wide fan base, launching a hub in Europe would allow WWE access to some of the continents best talent, and help develop them into future Superstars.
