Tommy End (fka Aleister Black) spoke with Renee Paquette on this week’s Oral Sessions about a wide range of topics.
During it, he talked about why he thinks WWE struggles with handling NXT talent who are promoted to the main roster.
“I think one of the main issues is that there are too many cooks in the kitchen. Whereas [Triple H] has a vision and oversees the entire vision with his team. He always puts his ear to the ground and he communicates very one-on-one with his talent and everybody shares his vision. Where I feel on the main roster, a lot of people think that they know Vince’s [McMahon’s] vision. They haven’t closely followed the people that are being brought up. Vince sees certain individuals and is completely mesmerized by them. And then when he has them, he’s like, ‘All right, where do I put you?’ I feel the time spent with ‘where do I place you?’ kind of loses it because it taking too long for people to be placed.
“Whether that’s because the rotation is too quick or people don’t have a creative vision coming in or people rely too much on letting the main roster do your creative work for you, who knows? I think it’s a combination of both, I don’t believe in one party always being the complete blame for everything. When you come in, you’re a professional. You need to have a vision for yourself. You need to have a vision. You need to have ideas continuously. Even when you’re not empty-handed, it just sometimes doesn’t always translate the way that you want it to translate, or it doesn’t go with the vision that you want it to go. Because at the end of the day there’s one man in charge of the vision, and if that vision doesn’t pan out the way that it should pan out, it’s hard to stay afloat.”
