Last night's WWE Raw saw Triple H attempt to recruit former NXT Champion Kevin Owens for the black and gold brand ahead of this weekend's Survivor Series pay-per-view, where NXT, SmackDown, and Raw will go head-to-head-to-head in a series of inter-brand matches, before his developmental charges stood tall in the show-closing brawl.
While the Raw and SmackDown men's teams for the 5-on-5-on5 elimination bout are already complete, NXT are yet to name a single representative. It's thought that champion Adam Cole will lead the squad, but still, with less than a week to go, nothing is confirmed.
Now, WrestleVotes are claiming that WWE have discussed the idea of Triple H featuring alongside his NXT wrestlers:-
A hint of cynicism should be applied here as the report is super ambiguous and phrased in such a way that it'll look accurate regardless of the outcome, though it's easy to see why there might be a bit of managerial push and pull with this matter.
NXT's wrestlers will be tasked with uniting at Survivor Series just one night after tearing each other apart at TakeOver: WarGames. The writers have struggled with this so far, with rivals Rhea Ripley and Shayna Baszler warring one night then buddying up the next, so fingers crossed they make it through this week without more logic leaps.
