• Does Vince McMahon Want To Prove Triple H Wrong Regarding NXT Talent?
As seen during this week’s WWE main roster programming, NXT wrestlers Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black & Ricochet were used in matches.
According to Brad Shepard, his sources have told him it looks like Vince McMahon wants to prove Triple H wrong regarding NXT talent.
Below is what Shepard said:
“I was told that there is a weird dynamic at play where Triple H hypes the (NXT) guy and Vince tries to prove him wrong.
In this case, Vince wanted to put the NXT call ups in a hole and test them to see if they could climb out of it.
So this is the metaphorical Vince throwing them in the deep end of the swimming pool and seeing if they’ll drown or come up for air.”
