"NXT is a scaled-down version of Raw — the same feel, same cameras, same lighting, same techniques," Triple H said. "The idea is that when you are called up from NXT to Raw, it's just a bigger building with more people in it. It's all about giving talent the opportunity to grow and perform but, when they get on to the main stage, they are ready to go."
- NXT presents a live event tonight at the Fenn Center in Fort Pierce, FL, followed by a show on Saturday at Leesburg Armory in Leesburg, FL. Sami Zayn, Paige, Emma and Xavier Woods will be meeting fans before tomorrow's live event in Leesburg. We would appreciate a report for either of these shows, so if you are attending one, please send us a report by clicking here.
"Jerry scouts all the amateur programs," JR said. "He goes to all the major duals. He has a network of coaches who work with him who know what WWE is looking for. He goes to the NAIA nationals, the Division II nationals. He's looking for guys who have that nice look, a marketable look — he doesn't have to be 6-3; he could be 5-10 — and some of these guys have a little showmanship in them. They've got a little swag about them. You need extroverted athletes. If you're an extroverted athlete who is motivated to be an entertainer, you could go from amateur wrestling and the wrestling room, the sweat and the stench, to really making a lot of money. There's been a lot of them in the amateurs that did exactly that."
