In a recent interview with Variety, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H discussed several topics, including the launch of WWE NXT Europe.

Highlights of the interview are below:

On the progress regarding the re-launch of WWE NXT UK to WWE NXT Europe: “I would like to be able to find the best athletes and the largest personalities and the most entertaining people from every place in the world and bring them into what we do, because when you begin to create those characters and those stars from every region, those regions become more engaged in what we do. If you can begin to go to all these places, and begin to find athletes there that can resonate on a global stage, some will make it big, some will make it small, and some won’t make it at all.”

On a potential change of direction in the recruitment process for WWE NXT Europe: “NXT UK was based mostly on independent wrestling workers, guys that worked their way up and found their way to us, we’re starting the process there doing the same thing we’re doing here. There isn’t an NCAA collegiate level of athletics in Europe, but there’s a lot of athletes that are training in a lot of places like Loughborough or whatever for specific sports. We’re beginning to engage with them now and finding the same interest level that we’re finding in NCAA athletes here.”
