Triple H walks fans through the process of finding the next WWE superstar.
WWE is always looking for the next great talent. Whether they are found on the Independent scene or through another sport, most talent must go through the Performance Center. Speaking to The National, Triple H discussed how WWE evaluates talent at the Performance Center.
"We will scour, we will go through those people, we will talk to them, we will whittle that down to the best of the best. We'll bring them in to try out for us," said Triple H "They'll come in for a few days, we'll put them through some really hard stuff. But we're not just looking to wear them out physically because what we're looking for is, they wear down physically, we're looking for how they handle that, mentally. What becomes of them? Are they leaders? When they get tired, do they help the person next to them? Or do they push the person next to them down, to try to succeed, themselves? It's all part of the process."
The founder of NXT continued, "We'll then find talent, that we believe have the skill set and the right mentality to become WWE superstars. We've become very successful at that whittling down process. We'll begin to look at them. Whether we bring them here, whether we bring them at first to the UK, when we feel like we're beginning to see enough of that passion process and enough boiling up to the top, that we're ready and we're already looking at the process, I don't want to say it's like we're waiting, we will have all the steps in place to then begin to execute a performance centre."
WWE recently opened a second Performance Center in the United Kingdom. Triple H has already stated that they have plans to open Performance Centers in India and the Middle East.
