Triple H recently did an interview with SportingNews.com and here are a few highlights...
SPORTING NEWS: NXT being on USA Network is part of WWE week on the channel. Is this something you have previously pushed for, getting NXT on USA Network, even for a one-shot?
PAUL LEVESQUE: No. It's funny, I really haven't. This has been an exciting in that ... break this down however you want and you can look at it and say holiday week or however you want. NBCUniversal, USA Network, the No. 1 cable channel in America, is taking an hour or primetime television and giving it to NXT which is huge from where this has come the last two, three years, where NXT has come. And they called us for it.
SN: How difficult do you think it would be to convince USA Network to make this a permanent thing and put NXT on television on a weekly basis?
PL: To be honest, I don't know. Again, I'll say it's an hour of primetime television on a Wednesday night from 7-8 (ET) on USA. That is not cheap or easy to get real estate. That's primetime television on the No. 1 cable channel. It's a big deal and they came to us. I don't know. If that's something an opportunity to them, I really don't know. I do know the opportunity that I have for sure right now which is (Wednesday) night and the show we put together and the show that will air is spectacular.
