Triple H Talks Possibility of Holding NXT TakeOver In Australia

Triple H said that, if things came together for NXT to hold a TakeOver in Australia, he would be open to doing so.

The multi-time WWE champion turned executive and creative force behind NXT was asked about bringing his brand to the Land Down Under during a conference call with media heading into this weekend's TakeOver event in Philadelphia.

NXT already has held two TakeOver events outside of the United States, in Canada and England, and made a tour of Japan and Australia in the latter part of 2016.

"I think the opportunity for NXT to do things internationally is definitely there," Triple H said in response to the chance of holding a TakeOver in Australia. "The platform for us to be able to do it, the ability for us to be able to travel longer periods of time and to be able to, whether it;'s to do a TakeOver somewhere else internationally or do television or any of that."

Triple H noted that it was easier for NXT to hold a TakeOver or TV tapings somewhere like Australia as opposed to a main-roster product like Raw or Smackdown, because those events are held weekly live.

"The opportunity is there. It's just making it all work out, making it make sense and making it be a financial winner for everybody involved including if we're working with somebody in Australia," Triple H said, adding, "We're open to business on that if the opportunity is right. I would love to bring a TakeOver to Australia, I would love to bring the product to Australia again. Doing it again, for me, when the time is right, I'd love to do it."

WWE currently has several Australian talents on its roster, including the tag team TM-61, as well as Rhea Ripley, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, and Buddy Murphy.
