Triple H Comments On If He Thinks #NXT Should Be Longer Than 1-Hour

Triple H was interviewed by ESPN after NXT Takeover: Chicago. Triple H was asked during the interview if he feels like NXT should be longer than just a one-hour show on Wednesday nights. This is a topic that has been debated among wrestling fans many times.

Here is what Triple H had to say on the topic:

“There are times when I look at NXT and part of me loves the hour format because everybody’s got busy lives. By the time you get to Wednesday … if you’re a huge fan, by the time you get to Wednesday, you’ve watched five hours of WWE, and then you’re watching NXT. And that’s if you didn’t watch ‘205 Live.’ There’s a lot out there. The great thing is they’re all slightly different, so there’s a little bit of something for everybody.

I run into things, for me, when we’re scripting out weekly episodes of NXT, [where] it’s like, ‘Oh, man, I’d really like to debut this person, or do this thing with this new character, or help get a persona going or something [else], and I don’t have the room to do it. There’s a fine line between that and leaving them wanting more, so it’s a balance.”

  1. It shouldn’t, unless they get rid of 205 Live and merge that with NXT. I really like his thoughts on how we have busy lives and he’s right, after RAW, SD & 205 Live, we really don’t need a lot more content. An hour long is a great length because as he said, it leaves people wanting more.

  2. Ian says:

    Give NXT 2 hours, drop RAW to 2 hours.

    If the new NXT UK gets a show I could honestly see NXT being moved to network TV.
