During an appearance on The Sessions, Kyle O'Reilly spoke about WWE NXT and how Triple H spoke about it's concept.
"When NXT got its TV deal, there was something Hunter said that I loved when he compared NXT to the main roster. He said NXT was like the broadway show. It’s where the real performers get out there. They’ve got the chops, they can act, they can sing, they can dance, they can do it all, and there are no special effects. There are no big-budget blockbuster movie special effects that are hiding it all like RAW and Smackdown would be. I just thought that was such a great analogy, and it really rang true.”
On WWE's mindset:
“‘We don’t want pro ‘rasslers' was something I heard. And it was like, ‘Okay, well I am a pro wrestler. And I want to be a pro wrestler still. So I want to go where I can be a pro wrestler.’ And I know that the things are the same – sports entertainment, wrestling, it’s all the same. But I don’t know if everyone looks at it that way.”
