TRIPLE H believes that WWE chief Vince McMahon has never watched a full episode of his own developmental brand NXT.

The revelation will come as little surprise to fans who have criticised Vince and WWE for the treatment of NXT stars once they’re called up to the main roster.

Triple H made the comments in London while announcing the debut of NXT UK – which airs on the WWE Network next Wednesday October 17.

But Triple H also says that Vince’s outsider view of NXT is a good thing – and helps him see the brand and its superstars objectively.

He said: “I don’t know that he’s ever even watched a full episode of NXT start to finish. He’s busy.”

But “The Game” says he’s always amazed by how much insight Vince has on the product and superstars from watching just snippets.

Triple H said: “He will pick up a lot from bits and pieces from what he sees. To me it’s always amazing – his insight of things.

“I realise he just saw a snippet but what he will say about that snippet is a bigger overall arc to the entire product, and I’m like, ‘That’s really right.’ I think it’s great that he doesn’t see all of it because it gives him a different perspective. It gives him an outsider view on it.”

The Triple H-run NXT has been one of the hottest wrestling brands in the world over the past four years, with an emphasis on stripped back storytelling and in-ring action.

The brand has also been praised for its consistently excellent TakeOver shows, which regularly outdo big WWE pay-per-views for quality and drama.
