I haven’t really followed it except for their Takeover event, but I was curious what the end game for NXT UK was.
Is it to act as a pipeline/feeder system for the mainstream WWE audience? To act as their own separate entity? Or (as you’ve mentioned) just Vince trying to monopolize the product all around the world?
The main goal appears to be monopolizing the business in major centers like the UK (and soon Germany) but they've been aiming for Performance Centers worldwide for a long time, with the goal being to bring young talent into the WWE system early and train them to look at the hard camera internally instead of going through traditional indy routes. Makes sense, really.
