Regarding NXT going to New Zealand and Australia later this year, Triple H called the growth unbelievable and said they have more and more places that want to bring NXT in. He said the WWE Network is everywhere, which means NXT can go anywhere, and when NXT delivers how they did tonight, there’s not a place on the planet where they can’t sell out.
He said we will see what happens to Bayley next after her loss to NXT Women’s Champion Asuka but gave her props for how she works a crowd. He said Brooklyn is her place and she should be proud of that. He also praised Asuka and said she’s on a different level right now. He doesn’t see anyone challenging her unless they surprise him.

With Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Title, he said we will see the volume turned up from what we saw in NXT. He’s also excited about Charlotte and WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks tearing the house down. He said they had a completely different group of people tonight and said the talent pool is as deep as it’s been, and will continue to be that way. He said NXT is always creating the future and the future is always evolving.
Tripe H also commented on violinist Lee England Jr. “lighting the place up” for Nakamura’s entrance, praising the visual. Regarding the new NXT Champion, Triple H said he’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime athletes that can come in and captivate the world.
