Triple H admits that he doesn't like when promotions have too many championships because he feels that championships should be sacred but when asked if the women's division could potentially see another title belt added to the fold in NXT, Triple H touted the division’s depth potentially warranting a new title.
At NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day, there will be two women's matchups both of which will have high stakes attached.
For the NXT Women's Championship, Io Shirai will defend against both Mercedes Martinez and Toni Storm. Also, in the finals of the inaugural women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament, Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart will face Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai.
Speaking on the media call previewing this event, Triple H was very proud to say that the card was constructed with multiple important women's matches involved and said that the division is only beginning to grow as the next rookie class coming to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando will be the largest female class thus far in the history of the WWE’s training facility.
“Almost half of this card in its entirety is made up of women. Look at the depth behind them, the division’s incredible and only getting stronger. The current class coming in to the Performance Center, this rookie class coming in very soon is the largest female class we had in history so that speaks of the commitment and where we're going with female performers and seeing them as exactly that, as performers as nothing else and really trying to strengthen that even further,” said Hunter.
Later, Triple H was asked about championships and the potential to see the NXT brand gain more championships for the women and whether they would be singles belts or tag team titles.
In response, Triple H said he's not a fan of oversaturating a promotion with championships but admits that those conversations do happen especially when there is a roster as deep as the NXT women's roster.
“I think those conversations happen. I think you are always looking to make it everything that it can be [but] you also want to make sure that you don't water things down. I'm not a big believer in having 38 titles in organizations that are just like everybody's constantly just making their way to a different title at any given time and I don't believe that it's always about those championships, there is different storytelling, but that's definitely a thought that's in mind and we'll see where it goes.
“I think, especially as the women's division has increased in size, people were talking about that a few years ago, but I don't believe that the depth and the size of it was there and it's getting to that point now. So, those are conversations that are had a lot.”
