NXT Expected To “Somewhat” Return To Triple H’s Previous Vision

NXT Expected To “Somewhat” Return To Triple H’s Previous Vision

Since last September, WWE has changed several things with NXT as it went from a gritty product focused on in-ring action and storylines featuring some of the best wrestlers in the world to NXT 2.0, which is focused on promos and character creation.

When WWE rebranded NXT as NXT 2.0, Paul “Triple H” Levesque was away due to his cardiac event. WWE stopped signing independent wrestlers and focused on younger athletes with no pro wrestling background.

With Triple H serving as Head of Creative and Head of Talent Relations, fans may see NXT slowly return to Triple H’s vision of using talent with wrestling experience.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that “in NXT, the belief was that the product will revert back somewhat to Levesque’s previous vision of it.”

Meltzer noted the belief was that while they will continue to heavily recruit top-tier athletes, WWE would be open to using more experienced wrestling talent, and going forward, “the door would be more open to better wrestlers who weren’t as big or as good looking as [Vince] McMahon wanted on the roster.”

Shawn Michaels has been in charge of the day-to-day running of NXT since Triple H’s heart issues, with McMahon and Bruce Prichard having the final say on NXT’s booking.
