Triple H and Stephanie McMahon sure seem to be working towards turning WWE into a globally recognised brand, and NXT's expansion to various outside territories is a big step in that direction. A recent report stated that WWE is planning to expand NXT in Canada, and former WWE Superstar Santino Marella might end up bagging a significant role in the promotion if the plan comes to fruition.
