‘The Game’ Triple H did an interview with The National recently when he was on his tour in India, discussing a variety of professional wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
Triple H talked about the past when Indian athletes would have a hard time joining the WWE because there was not a “right pathway.”
“The WWE hasn’t presented the right pathways. If you were an athlete in India and you watch WWE and thought you really wanna do this, the pathway wasn’t clear. How would you become WWE superstar nobody really knew.”
About WWE Superstar Jinder Mahal, the COO expressed the fact that Mahal has earned his respect despite of the criticism he receives.
“Jinder Mahal has done an amazing job in re-creating himself. Jinder was in WWE for the first time and wasn’t as successful as he would have wanted. But we went back and re-energised himself, dug deeper (within) himself and worked extremely hard in his second chance and is now making the most of it. People can criticise him, but he has earned my respect.”
On the difference between WWE Superstars and athletes:
“They are more than just athletes. They are the best and most well-conditioned athletes, but beyond that they are the best entertainers in the world.
Their ability to be able to control the crowd to garner those emotions and also tell the story they want to tell through athletic maneuvers. And this is what makes them different.”
