Triple H recently sat down for a lengthy interview with TalkSport.com. Below are some notable quotes:
NXT going head-to-head with AEW: ”To me, people can say what they want, how they want. I don’t approach it like as a competitive thing or it’s anything else, we’re just going to put on our shows. We’re going to put on our shows when we need to put them on, in the best places we need to put them on, in the right timeslots for them and the best talent I can find in the world – and we already have them. I’m confident in that. When I look across the board at NXT in general and NXT in the UK here, we put on show after show of the highest calibre – not one match or two matches, the entire show. So I have no doubt.
For me it’s not competitive against anyone or anything, I just want to put on the best show for the fans of NXT, the fans here in Cardiff tonight, the fans around the world – that’s all this is. It’s funny because a few years ago we were doing this and doing the same kind of thing, wowing people, and there wasn’t competitors out there. So I guess we were just doing it for competitive reasons then? To compete with ourselves?”
Dave Meltzer speculating Vince McMahon will be involved with NXT on the USA Network: “Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of things people like Dave say that don’t make sense. Because they don’t approach things from a business standpoint. Put it this way: we’re going to be live on Mondays, we’re going to be live on Wednesdays, we’re going to be live on Fridays. There’s so much bandwidth to go [around] it’s just funny the small-mindedness of it that people don’t give Vince McMahon the credit for being the businessman that he is.”
