Triple H On If NXT Can Become Comparable to Raw and Smackdown, Why Elias Is a Better WWE Main Roster Fit
Triple H recently spoke with CBS Sports and below are some interview highlights:
On the potential for NXT to become comparable to Raw and Smackdown:
“It can be; at this point I don’t know,” Levesque told CBS Sports on Tuesday as a guest on the “In This Corner Podcast.” “What I do know is it was a hell of an opportunity. If you look at NXT over the last few years, it has grown into something where NBCUniversal — USA [Network], the No. 1 cable channel in America — came to us and said we would like to take an hour of primetime and give to NXT. That’s awesome.
“To me, that says a lot about the brand, where it’s at, and the value of it. I’m really excited about that. We put together a hell of a show and hopefully it will be a lot of people because not everyone has been exposed to it.”
On why Elias is a better fit for the main roster as opposed to NXT:
“The entire time [Elias] was there, I was trying to get him ready for Raw and SmackDown because I knew as a performer his value was there,” Levesque said. “I said to Dusty [Rhodes], ‘He is made for the roster and not for NXT.’ The gimmick, the way he is and his demeanor, he is suited for that. He is not a fit for NXT. It doesn’t mean he won’t be successful there and it doesn’t mean he won’t have a run there but that run was to get ready for the roster.”
