Triple H is perfectly fine with two hours.
On Wednesday, Sept. 18, NXT switches from a one-hour taped format to a two-hour live format. The first two weeks of the show will split hours between USA and WWE Network. On Oct. 2, the program will be live for two hours every week on USA. On the recent NXT media call, Triple H discussed the expanded format and revealed that he wouldn't want to expand any further.
Me, personally, I wouldn't want to go three hours. Every hour that you add gets exponentially harder," he stated. "It really does. For the last couple of years, one of the more difficult things in the NXT brand has been bandwidth of...we have a lot of talent, I would like to debut them, I would like to get them on TV and I don't have the space. With an hour show, the real estate of where you could put people -- every single episode we would do I was like, 'Man, I'd really like to get this person on the show and I just don't have the space.' Two hours, to me, is not about speeding up storylines or increasing the amount of time you see talent, it's about having the opportunity to debut more and letting more talent shine."
The first show in the USA era will feature an NXT North American Title match, a fatal four-way to determine the number one contender to the NXT Women's Championship, and a street fight.
