Put the coach in? We are coming up on the biggest night NXT has ever had with this weekend’s Survivor Series. The show will feature a three way battle for brand supremacy between Monday Night Raw, Smackdown and NXT, including a pair of three way five on five on five Survivor Series elimination matches. With less than a week to go before the show, the NXT men’s team members have yet to be named. That is something that needs to be done, but we might know the biggest name on the team.
There are five spots available on the team and it is not clear who will be representing NXT in the match. While there are some spots that are somewhat simple guesses, such as Finn Balor, Tommaso Ciampa, Matt Riddle and Keith Lee, all of whom have been featured during the NXT invasion and do not have other matches at Survivor Series, there is one big spot left and that could come from a name who does not even wrestle down in NXT.
This is how he started it:
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, there is a push backstage to have Triple H himself as the last member of Team NXT. However, there is no guarantee that this will happen as the idea has not been universally acclaimed. In addition, Triple H himself has not expressed interest in wrestling at the show. Triple H, who last wrestled at WrestleMania 35 in April, has never wrestled in NXT.
Hearing that over the past few weeks there has been a push from creative to have Triple H as a member of Team NXT in the men’s elimination match. That idea has been met w/ mixed reactions, including that of The Game. I’m told he does NOT want to be part of the match this Sunday.

And this is just cool. Check out Triple H in his element:
Opinion: I really hope this isn’t the way they go with the match as it would completely defeat the purpose of having NXT on the show. The whole point of the invasion is to have NXT hanging even with the main roster. Why in the world should they suddenly need Triple H, the former main roster star, to be the big savior for the team? It feels like the Alliance needing WWF talent in 2001: it defeated the point of having the team in the first place and hurt everything involved.
Do you think Triple H will be on the show? Who will be on Team NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
