Below are some highlights.

Triple H on NXT’s Women’s Division:

“These women are going to be dominating the business for a long time to come. There is such depth, and we’re creating new talent. That bodes well for women in the sport. The deeper that bench is, the more we’ll see young girls who want to do this when they grow up. Ten years from now, there will be women saying that Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai and Xia Li inspired them. That’s really exciting to think about.”

Triple H On Killer Kross:

“The first time you see him, you know right away that he’s something special. It’s been a long path for him to get where he is. He is a unique talent that combines what he does in the ring with his charisma and his intelligence. I’m excited for him to be here.”

Triple H On NXT Continuing During COVID-19:

“From our end, this came down to a necessity standpoint. Adding another standalone event would have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. As soon as the opportunity came to break up TakeOver and put it in the weekly program, I jumped all over it. It’s a fit for all the right reasons.

“It’s been a unique time, but our goal is to put out the best product we can. While there is that competitive nature in normal times, right now it’s just about giving people an escape and a release.”
