Insight Into Triple H’s Decision Not To Pursue Big Feud In WWE NXT 

Two factions wanted to clash on WWE TV for a long time, but it wasn’t to be. The Undisputed Era was once the most dominant stable on the NXT brand. The Forgotten Sons would soon rise to prominence among NXT fans. Behind the scenes, members of Undisputed Era and The Forgotten Sons expressed interest in a feud. Bobby Fish, a former member of the Undisputed Era, shared his theory on why that didn’t happen during an episode of The Undisputed Podcast.

We never got that programme together that I consider we all talked about a few times, says Fish. We did have one ladder fight in Portland, which was enjoyable to organise. I think that what happened with us and you fellas was that you were really obtaining the Sons thing going, but I would say you were generally able to make other individuals appear better than they were, and that’s kind of what we were as well.

Steve Maclin, a former member of The Forgotten Sons, was a guest on the podcast. He remembered talking with Paul Levesque about feud never happening. I remember talking to Hunter and him saying, Well, they’re heels. Unquestionably, I say. I know you’re attempting to make them heels, but the audience adores them. Make them the babyface in this role, and yet they didn’t want to turn you guys, which we understand. It’s his strategy. So it’s just, OK, we’ll keep pitching ideas.

NXT Europe

In August, WWE announced the release of NXT Europe. The new brand, which is set to launch in 2023, aims to include more Pan-European countries. WWE recently held its third-quarter earnings call, during which Chief Content Officer Paul Levesque provided additional insight into the concept behind the shift and also why WWE NXT UK was closed down. 

We wanted to replicate what we were doing in the US when we started NXT UK, and we got a good start on it until COVID came along and slowed everything down, forcing us to rethink it. So we got to the point where we were ready to go again, but it’s difficult to rebrand and reboot something while it’s still running, according to Levesque. As a result, we turned it off. As Europe evolves and grows, I believe we will see it mimicking a bit more of what we see in the United States.

The brand, like the US, intends to serve as a feeder system for WWE, trying to recruit athletes from all over Europe & developing them for the main roster. Furthermore, the localised presence allows them to attract players from outside the continent, such as South Africa and India. It is extremely hard for us to find athletes and bring them to the United States to start training. It’s a lengthy process for us.
