Even though Raw is the WWE's flagship show and SmackDown Live is on the cusp of its 1000th episode, NXT has a special place in the hearts of WWE fans.

The Yellow Brand has become its own animal in recent years and although it was originally designed to be purely a developmental brand to serve the main roster, it has become the go-to place for wrestlers all around the world.

The NXT TakeOver shows have often outshone the main roster's efforts and many fans have questioned whether Vince McMahon has his finger on the pulse of wrestling anymore and singing Triple H's praises in the process.

NXT started off as almost a game show that had recruits doing ridiculous trials to show themselves off on TV. From that group spawned the Nexus, but Triple H saw something bigger down the road.

Now, Triple H has launched a UK subsidiary of NXT - aptly named NXT UK - and NXT itself has garnered attention from major TV networks looking to put them in prime time slots.

While we know NXT is Triple H's brainchild, many have wondered the role Vince McMahon plays behind the scenes with the WWE's third brand.

Triple H is very much involved in the running of the main roster shows and reportedly put together all of the Monday Night Raw that just passed with McMahon not even at the show.

The Sun's Tom Fordy attended Triple H's press conference to announce NXT UK and The Game dropped a bombshell about McMahon and the NXT product.

He said: “I don’t know that he’s ever even watched a full episode of NXT start to finish. He’s busy.”

Triple H said: “He will pick up a lot from bits and pieces from what he sees. To me it’s always amazing – his insight of things.

“I realise he just saw a snippet but what he will say about that snippet is a bigger overall arc to the entire product, and I’m like, ‘That’s really right.’ I think it’s great that he doesn’t see all of it because it gives him a different perspective. It gives him an outsider view on it.”

While the 14-time world champion made a good save about McMahon's perspective, it's quite alarming that Vince isn't taking in, quite possibly, the hottest product in wrestling today. He probably does indeed watch the TakeOvers, but the weekly show is important.

And how can he really know how to use the talents when they get up to the main roster if he hasn't really seen them on a weekly basis? I suppose some of the floundering superstars are your answer.
