• Triple H Comments On If He Sees NXT Becoming A Global Brand
During a recent interview with Planeta Wrestling, Old School WWF Legend Triple H talked about WWE having successful events all around the world and if he sees NXT becoming a global brand.
Below are the highlights:
On WWE having successful events all around the world:
“I think anything is possible and what you [saw] in Saudi Arabia is an example of what we can do. We have done it in the past, and had been here [Saudi Arabia] before for a two-day event. WWE is somewhere around the world at all times. WWE International flavor will be new.
We are just coming back from a successful tour of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town all in South Africa, to coming back straight from there and to go to Raw and SmackDown, and then coming straight to Saudi Arabia to step in the ring at ‘The Greatest Royal Rumble,’ and then a short period of time later go to Canada, and then leave Canada and then go do the UK and be there touring for several weeks straight touring, and NXT will be down in the UK. The global entity of what we do has never been in more areas than it has been in now.
Not many companies can say that they are truly a global-branded company, but we are as big, if not bigger in India than we are in South America and as big as we are in other places. All around the world there is a fanbase for WWE and our goal is to entertain them every way possible.”
On if he sees NXT becoming a global brand:
“Those are our goals over time. Whether that would be in the Middle East, or India, or South America or Latin America, it all comes down to timing, they all take time and partnerships. They take significant business dealings. It is all in the process. Would I love for NXT to be this global, international brand in all the markets that I mentioned? Absolutely! It is all going to take time.”
• WWE Doing A 2015 PPV Rematch With Brock Lesnar Next?
PWInsider’s Mike Johnson is speculating that Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins could be next in line to challenge “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.
Mike also talked about Rollins using “#BrockWho” hashtag on Twitter and has been using “#FightingChampion” hashtag for a while now.
Highly considering another Open Challenge for the IC Title this Monday in London. @MojoRawleyWWE put in a career performance last week. Interested to see who wants to step up to the plate this time. #MondayNightRollins #fightingchampion #brockwho

Lesnar & Rollins faced each other at the Battleground PPV in 2015. Rollins was the WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the time and Lesnar was chasing the Title. The match ended with Lesnar winning via DQ when The Undertaker interfered and destroyed Lesnar with low-blows, Chokeslams & Tombstone Piledrivers.
On the other hand, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted that Lesnar’s next opponent could either be Braun Strowman or Roman Reigns.
Lesnar won’t be defending the Universal Championship at the Money In The Bank 2018 PPV. His next Title defense is expected to be at either Extreme Rules 2018 PPV in July or SummerSlam 2018 PPV in August.
