With NXT TakeOver: Chicago going down in just a few days, WWE executive Paul "Triple H" Levesque did his usual media conference call to promote the big event. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On plans for WWE's U.K. division changing since being launched in 2017: "The plan is sorta kinda still the same. Obviously it's morphed some, it took a lot longer than I would like to get to where we are going back in there and doing this again. In the meantime I think we've exposed some incredible talent like Pete Dunne, Trent Seven, Wolfgang and Tyler [Bate] and everybody to the world that weren't getting to see them to as many people as do now, on an at-least semi-regular basis. So just that part of it has been great. Going forward, the plan is still the same, the plan is to get something rolling on the ground there and to move it in that direction. We're headed in that direction, and hopefully we'll have some further announcements soon."
On Ricochet injury reports: "He just tweaked himself a little bit in Paris. He's not injured, we just didn't want to take a chance with it with Takeover just being down the road. The one thing with athletes across the board in any sport, these guys and girls are thoroughbreds and somebody has to pull the reigns on them and tell them, 'let's back off today.' He just tweaked his shoulders a little bit, but he's fine."
