Triple H wants NXT to become the next WCW (Video)

"It's its own brand now. Where does it go? If you want to make the comparison to now of, I've said it in interviews, if you go back to the Attitude Era when there was WCW, and the WWE, and ECW was kind of that third brand that was kind of the alternative and the feeder system, I think that's where we're at right now. But where does it go? My goal is to turn NXT into not just the ECW, not just the alternative, but I would like to make it the WCW. Maybe not the eventually going out of business part but I would like to turn it into just as big a brand and really make it something special, which we're well on our way."

Considering how deep the talent roster at NXT has become, with new signings like Kenta (who now goes by Hideo Itami), Prince Devitt, and Kevin Steen joining the fold, it's not out of line to think NXT could become what WCW was to the WWF back in the late 90s.

In fact, you'll find many fans right here on this very site littered throughout the comments sections who believe NXT presents a far superior product to anything you get from WWE on Raw or SmackDown.
