Triple H Talks About WWE’s Biggest Competitor, If NJPW Forcing WWE To evolve


Source: CBS Sports

Triple H spoke with CBS Sports’ In This Corner Podcast this week to promote NXT Takeover: Brooklyn this Saturday. Below are some highlights:

Which competitor WWE needs to pay the most attention to:

“When you say, ‘What’s the No. 2 promotion?’ and ‘WWE doesn’t have a promotion knocking on its door and pushing them,’ Raw and SmackDown do. Raw and SmackDown have a promotion right on their tail pushing them to do more. That promotion is going to run a show on Saturday night at the Barclays Center, and it’s called NXT.

“[NXT] is going to set a bar, and the main roster is going to have to step up to that bar. And trust me, those are all people that are coming from NXT, and now the kids here are pushing them to do the same thing that they pushed the people in front of them to do.”

– Additionally, Triple H addressed NJPW possibly influencing WWE’s business decisions, alluding that the latter couldn’t force the WWE to make changes to its product. He also explained that he wanted to give the new generation of WWE performers a platform to reach for the stars and headline Wrestlemania.
