Triple H On If NXT Is Competing With AEW

Before Saturday's WWE NXT UK "Takeover: Cardiff" event, Triple H spoke with talkSPORT.

Triple H defended some recent comments he made about why he doesn't feel like NXT is competing with AEW. NXT and AEW will be airing head-to-head on Wednesdays, with NXT premiering in a couple of weeks.

"People can say what they want, how they want. I don't approach it as, 'Well, this is a competitive thing,' or it's anything else to me," Triple H said, via Wrestling Inc. "We just put on our shows. I'm going to put on our shows when we need to put them on, in the best places we need to put them, in the right timeslots for them, and with the best talent that I can find in the world, and that we have, and we already have them, I'm confident in that. When I look across the board at NXT in general, and at NXT in the UK here, we put on show after show of the highest caliber. Not one match or two matches, the entire shows.

"For me it's not competitive against anyone or anything, I just want to put on the best show possible for fans of NXT, for the fans here in Cardiff tonight, for the fans around the world, that's all this is. You know, it's funny because a few years ago we were doing this and doing the same kind of thing, and wowing people, and there wasn't competitors out there, and I guess we were just doing it for competitive reasons [laughs], to compete with ourselves."

NXT moves to two hours on the USA Network starting on Wednesday, September 18th.
