Nigel McGuinness was recently interviewed by Bill Apter’s ‘Apter Chat’. During the interview McGuinness was asked about NXT making its debut on the USA Network.
“It was a great day all around. I mean, everybody was excited to be getting the opportunity, getting all the eyes on the product, you know what I mean? I’ve only been there, what, for the last two or three years? And it’s been something that started what, eight or nine years ago, and it’s been built up through the years, obviously, with Triple H starting it out and so many other people coming in on board and evolving it. And so just to be part of it was huge, you know, it was exciting. And I love the team, I love everyone who’s involved, Mauro and Beth [Phoenix]. It was a lot of fun, but butterflies as well. It was quite bit nerve-wrecking. It’s a different process, you know. We used to do four hours taped in a row, and now two hours live, and it’s so — no room for error.”
