Following news of the latest rumors surrounding the fate of NXT, here is everything you need to know about the show possibly landing a new home.
#5 Triple H has addressed the latest NXT rumors
During a media conference call which took place before NXT Takeover: Toronto over the weekend, Triple H addressed rumors of NXT moving to FS1, and WWE possibly having two NXT programs.
"When you say [the potential of] two NXT shows, it's funny because in, my mind, I immediately went, 'Well, there are two NXT shows, there's NXT: UK and NXT," said Triple H, h/t to ComicBook.com for the transcription.
"But there's always a changing landscape, there's always - the internal discussion here of where content goes is a constant," Hunter said.
"We look at this kind of wheel of options of distribution that we have across all platforms, whether that be television or platforms like that, being a part of that world, or whether it be Facebook or something like that, or USA, or FOX. Then there's our digital presence which, as you know, a billion social media followers, #1 channel on YouTube for sports, I think #2 overall right now in the world for anything on YouTube. So digital and where you put things out in that matter [is important to us], and then our VOD/our network/our direct to consumer."
