If you were wondering whether Vince McMahon watched the first live episode of NXT on USA, the answer is yes … and he was apparently “thrilled” with the product.
Triple H was asked about Vince McMahon while speaking with the media after Wednesday night’s show. He replied saying his father-in-law/boss sent many text messages throughout the day, including countdowns as the live show got closer to starting.
The WWE exec says McMahon watched the entire show and sent a few texts giving his thoughts throughout the broadcast. Vince also texted after the show saying he loved it and thought talent knocked it out of the park.
“[Vince McMahon] sent me a massive congratulations after it was over and was thrilled with the product,” he added before explaining that Vince embraces the difference between brands.
