Triple H Says Peacock And WWE Relationship Gives Flexibility For NXT Programming

WWE has a great relationship with Universal, but Triple H doesn't know for sure if NXT will move to the Peacock service.

Fightful has reported in the past that Universal has felt out WWE about potentially moving NXT to another night in the past, but with the replay now airing the next day on Peacock, they effectively have brought on more viewership that way. When we asked Triple H about the potential of NXT running live on Peacock in the future, he wasn't that clued in.

"I'm not 100% sure about those conversations. That would be a question for Nick [Khan] or Stephanie [McMahon]. I'm not at that level of detail with the Peacock thing. I haven't been engaged at that point. The great thing about NXT and its placement on USA; one, they are extremely happy with the product and two, they are extremely happy with where it sits. You have to look at it as one big circular universe and they all pitch into each other. Having the platform with USA, much like Raw, to pitch into Peacock and pay-per-views and all the other content, [USA] seems like the best place for it to be. That's just me speaking. The relationship is very strong and remains for NXT. As these platforms shift and move and their desire to push subscribers or viewers in certain directions is part of this. The great thing about Peacock and NBCU relationship is they are synergistic to each other. When you talk about the size and strength of Peacock, it increases the viewership dramatically. If there is a special event coming on there, the ability for more people than ever to see that event and have eyeballs on it and have cross-promotion is bigger than ever. That's the goal," he said.

The WWE-Peacock relationship takes shape this March for WWE Network subscribers.
