During a conference call with Triple H, he announced that when they originally did the tournament to crown the inaugural NXT Heavyweight Champion, Jinder Mahal was almost the one chosen to win the whole thing before they eventually went with Seth Rollins.

Also of note was HHH reporting that SummerSlam has at least one NXT star in every scheduled match and also that there was a good mix of stars with indy experience and ones who have been brought up completely through the NXT/WWE system with no outside experience.

Other talents praised by Hunter during the call were Bobby Roode, Drew McIntyre, Hideo Itami, Aleister Black. Trips also noted that when fans get angry due to people not being called up to the main roster sooner, they don't realize that there are many more factors that are less apparent to them than people like he and Vince.
