NXT TakeOver Conference Call: HHH on 50/50 booking, CWC, more


Per usual, Paul "Triple H" Levesque did a conference call prior to the latest NXT TakeOver event, set for Brooklyn, NY, this Saturday on WWE Network.

On the 35 minute call, HHH discussed a variety of topics including fielding a few questions from this site's Dave Meltzer:

- He discussed the WWE Cruiserweight Classic at length and why the cruisers are headed to Raw instead of Smackdown.

- He discussed criticisms fans have when it comes to veterans being brought into NXT.

- He was asked if the Brooklyn events are like NXT's Wrestlemania.

- He was asked about the progress of a few international signees like Alexander Wolfe.

- He was asked about the possibility of Kota Ibushi working in both Japan and WWE at the same time.

- He was asked about the new strength and conditioning coach with regard to avoiding rashes of injuries like the recent shoulder injury trend.

- He talked about NXT announcers and changes now that Corey Graves is in WWE.

- He did discuss 50/50 booking and -- spoiler alert -- used the chocolate/vanilla phrase.
