Triple H & Vince McMahon at Gorilla

Talks continue between WWE and World Wrestling Network about expanding their relationship. The talks are still moving slowly and it’s due to Vince McMahon and Triple H arguing over whether or not they need additional developmental shows in place as NXT continues to evolve.

WWN has begun running small weekly shows in Florida in addition to their other shows and Triple H has asked them to look into running another town weekly as well so there are shows in place to keep lower level developmental guys busy as NXT hits the road more and more.

Vince is very skeptical about "outsourcing" some of developmental in this way, while Hunter is very intrigued by the idea. But things have been in a weird limbo because WWN is eager to expand the relationship and Triple H is curious about expanding the relationship, but he doesn't have Vince's blessing to do so and until NXT is touring full time, it's not needed anyway.

Nonetheless, WWN wants to prepare for the possibility by making sure there are enough shows to keep guys busy on a weekly basis.
