Triple H Shoots Down Reports That Vince McMahon Will be Involved With NXT

Home / Triple H Shoots Down Reports That Vince McMahon Will be Involved With NXT

— Vince McMahon’s involvement (or lack there of) in the upcoming NXT TV shows has been a hot topic of debate lately, with some reporters (Dave Meltzer) suggesting that it is only a matter of time before Vince gets hands-on, especially if the brand begins losing in the ratings war against AEW. Triple H recently appeared on TalkSPORT and shot down the latest Meltzer report, stating that Vince has basically told him it’s his show to make into a success:

“Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of things that people like Dave (Meltzer) say that don’t make sense because they don’t approach things from a business standpoint. Put it this way: we’re gonna be live on Mondays, we’re gonna be live on Wednesdays, we’re gonna be live on Fridays. There’s so much bandwidth to go. And the truth is…it’s just funny, the small-mindedness of it, that people don’t give Vince credit for being the businessman that he is. And the speculation and rumors and it’s easy when people leave or they go their own way to defend or jump onto speculation and rumors and a lot of it is that what it just is. When people talk about him, as a businessman, there are so many crazy misconceptions. The truth is, all of what we’re doing right now in this business is here because of him. He took a failing industry, so to speak, in a period of time in the 80s and turned it into a global phenomenon when nobody else had the foresight to do it. All the things that he’s done and where it is today. People look at sometimes where it is today, and you hear them say negative things, and it’s like, really? We signed billion-dollar deals with Fox and USA. I’m not sure that it’s crumbling. He’s also smart enough to understand the things that we do and where they go and how and the pieces of it. If you’re asking the simple term and answer, he’s not involved (with NXT). You know what I mean? Yeah, he’s gonna have say in some things like the brand sits and the marketing of it with USA and all that stuff and clearly, whatever he wants to do, at the end of the day. But the truth is at this point in time, he’s basically said, ‘Go make this thing a success.’”
