According to documents leaked online this morning, WWE executive Hunter Hearst Helmsley is scheduled to soon win the NXT Championship, which explains his unwavering devotion to building the NXT brand.
The documents, which appear to be genuine (because the word “genuine” is scrawled across the top), indicate that Helmsley will defeat current NXT Champion Finn Bálor at the upcoming NXT TaKeOVeR: REdemPshuN event in England.
Although NXT is ostensibly a “developmental” league where rookie wrestlers hone their craft in hopes of main-roster WWE stardom, the documents reveal the brand has always been intended as Helmsley’s last great conquest.
Helmsley has been fiercely devoted to building and promoting NXT over the past couple of years, even creating the WWE Performance Center in Florida, where rookies train for the opportunity to someday lose to Helmsley.
The seven-page memorandum, which indicates Helmsley’s NXT title reign with last 10 years, ends with the cryptic words: “Helmsley wins LOL.”
