Next review the most prominent statements.
WHAT CRITERIA ARE TAKEN WHEN PLACING A NEW TALENT ON TELEVISION?
If you look at the history of each of the competitors, you will understand very well that it depends on the profile of the fighter. Some talents quickly go on television for their experience in front of the cameras and others who take their due time. In the case of these Lastly, we try to give them little on-screen opportunities to adapt. A lot of people don’t understand that they have to adapt their personality to go out in front of a camera.
TRIPLE H WEIGHS IN ON ELI DRAKE’S RETURN TO WWE
I don’t think there is any kind of limit for people who leave the company. I hope that everyone who leaves for any reason can develop on their own and become a big name in the face of a possible return. I am Eli’s big fan since he first came in here, and there are multiple reasons on all sides why his first step didn’t work out. He wants a great platform to get out there and we will do our best to deliver it.
HOW WILL THE DEAL BETWEEN WWE AND PEACOCK AFFECT THE NXT TAKEOVER?
There are no plans to increase the number of events. The distribution agreements change constantly, but the content and its mode of delivery are the same. The material is still from WWE, and we do not plan to make any changes in the future. of Peacock is to attract more attention to the product.
TRIPLE H REFLECTS ON THE CURRENT TEAM OF COMMENTATORS
The absence of Mauro Ranallo is notable. I am still a great admirer of his work, and I regret that he had to move away due to circumstances between both parties. The dynamic between Vic Joseph, Wade Barrett, and Beth Phoenix is very good. I like that Beth finds your voice and space within the trio and it shows you learned quite a bit from your time commenting from home. I have witnessed Wade’s work as a commentator outside of WWE and am a huge fan of his style. Vic is great when he starts narrating on his own. Three friends with genuine chemistry and give a different vibe to RAW or SmackDown.
THE POSSIBILITY OF SEEING AN EXCLUSIVE NXT BRAND IN LATIN AMERICA
We have a lot of Latin talent, not just on NXT, but also on RAW and SmackDown. Indeed, we are very close to creating an exclusive brand of Latin American fighters. However, we must wait for our time and the time of the world to be suitable to start the project. The latest circumstances related to the pandemic made the task totally difficult, but it is a topic that I have spoken about multiple times in business meetings. We would also like to repeat events like Superstar Spectacle for other markets.
