Triple H addressed whether or not WWE NXT is competing with Ring of Honor by running shows in the same cities on the same days during a conference call today with the pro wrestling media. Hunter stated they aren’t looking to go after anyone or trying to see anyone fail by running shows head-to-head in the same market.

Triple H said NXT is piggy-backing off WWE’s big events like SummerSlam in Brooklyn or Night of Champions in Texas in September. He stated this was similar to ROH’s business model in running their big events piggy-backing off Wrestlemania.

Hunter said it was a smart business decision and claimed he was unaware of Ring of Honor running shows in September in Texas when WWE booked the NXT dates in the Lone Star State. WWE will run the following NXT tour dates in Texas next month:

9/17/15 in Houston, TX
9/18/15 in Austin, TX
9/19/15 in San Antonio, TX

Ring of Honor is running the following dates next month in Texas:

9/18/15 in San Antonio, TX
9/19/15 in San Antonio, TX

Triple H stressed they’re only worried about NXT and not anyone else.

Earlier on Wednesday, we wrote about WWE being interested in a top ROH star to use for NXT. You can read that article at this link.
