Kevin Nash is one of Triple H's closest friends, so we're sure you won't be surprised that he has some strong opinions about how he was treated when NXT became NXT 2.0.
There was a time when that was one of the hottest brands in all of pro wrestling, though it had become commonplace for Vince McMahon to drop the ball on NXT Superstars who were called up to the main roster. There were some hits, of course, with former NXT Champions Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins among the most noteworthy examples.
Unfortunately, with a lack of big names, NXT struggled in the Wednesday Night Wars and was ultimately beaten by AEW Dynamite. With that, the second Triple H was sidelined with a heart issue, Vince stepped in and transformed NXT into the colourful NXT 2.0.
Focusing on the type of wrestlers he likes, Vince turned the brand into RAW-lite, and the show has not been popular with fans. Now, though, the hope is that NXT can return to its former glory, with today's news of NXT Europe being launched a good sign of what's to come. Someone who was particularly disappointed to see what became of the brand under Vince's watch was Nash.
"He's got an eye for talent, that's for sure," the WWE Hall of Famer said of Triple H. "Look at the people that he's kind of hand-picked and pushed up on the WWE product on RAW. Every time one of them went up there, man it was just like, 'How quick can we dismantle what got him over and f**k this dude up?' It was just like when he got sick when he had the heart episode."
"They couldn't f**king get down there and dismantle what he had built in NXT quick enough," Nash continued. "I thought that was f**ked up, man."
That's the reaction many people had, and with Vince now gone from WWE, the product is vastly improving under Triple H's watch. As well as being in charge of creative, he's also overseeing talent relations, and it appears WWE is now a much happier place to work, as a result.
