Inside the troll recently interviewed WWE’s Triple H, which opened up to see WWE and all its trademarks as an extension of the area system long ago. Highlights are shown below.
On NXT UK Call Ups and if they will end in NXT or Main Roster:
I think it depends. I know it depends on the talent. I think there is some talent here that you might see coming from the UK that can go straight to RAW, to SmackDown. I think right now there is this kind of perceived system where it is RAW, SmackDown, NXT, NXT UK, anything. I do not believe that. I think talent is talent and they sit where they sit. I think you will see talent over the next few years coming up with RAW and SmackDown and I think you will see them moving back to NXT or coming back to the NXT UK system. I think talent will begin to develop and rotate through territories, so to speak. As this expands to the rest of the world, as you see this happening in the Middle East, India or Japan or South America, you will begin to see the system happening where talent can evolve. I think there will be some talent that will be incredibly successful, will become global names, will be global household names that will probably never leave the sorta NXT system because it is your home base and that is where they fit and they will Having extremely successful, meaningful careers and probably over these careers will pull you through various places around the world, perhaps without ever being at RAW or SmackDown, but it’s no less than your career.
On characters that evolve in different brands:
I think it depends on talent and moments and I think it is no different than it was ̵
1; if you go back 30-40 years ago to the US territory system, not different. You left a place; You went somewhere else. Sometimes you repeated that you thought, “You know, what I do is good, but here I want to do something else; I want to do it more,” and you reinvent and you become something different. Second, it’s the continuation of the same. There is some talent I see, even in the system, talent like Elias, which for me was the perfect fit of RAW or SmackDown from an entertainment point of view. He was a little bit of a square stick in a round hole in the NXT sometimes. He had all the skills for the lead role and the grouping, but different than for the NXT. There are differences in the brands, differences in what people are looking for from the brands. You will see these things transfer. RAW is a three hour show. There are many different components to it. You need the incredible athleticism to put on the actors. You need the characters to be able to carry the entertainment components of the show that general fans like. You need many different things, so some people are suitable for one or the other. Some people will succeed in one or the other. Some people will move to one, do moderately good there and move to another and become the greatest you have ever seen. I think it will be the character and the movement and I do not believe that success or failure is right at that moment. I think it’s long-term. When you look at the arc in any one’s twenty-year career, where they went and the success rate they had in all those places they went to is really what it gets. Some will become franchise players in the particular brands and these are the places to stay.
