Triple H addressed competing with AEW and Vince McMahon being more hands on with NXT now that it’s on cable television in a new interview with Sports Illustrated.
“That’s a challenge, but I love creating the competition amongst ourselves,” Triple H said of going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite. “I want Wednesday to be the best NXT no matter what, whether there is another show on against us or not. I want to put on the absolute best show every time we’re on the air.”
“Everything that happens within WWE has Vince’s fingerprints on it,” said Triple H of Vince McMahon’s involvement with NXT. “There is no NXT without Vince. It wouldn’t exist without him. He wants NXT to be different, something for the more passionate fan base. It’s a darker, grittier feel, it’s different. He totally understands that. But he has no desire to be in the day-to-day operations. Vince has a lot of other things on his plate.”
