Triple H recently took part in a press conference when he was asked what he would do if he could run the main roster like he does NXT. But in the process, this caller asked Triple H as “a fan” and he wasn’t too nice about it.
Before his question, this guy said he is “burned out” of the main roster and Raw and SmackDown are “treading water.” He also said he isn’t looking forward to watching SummerSlam, but only TakeOver.
Then he asked Triple H what he would do if he could run the main roster with an NXT approach.
“I also wish I could fly and breath underwater, Dude, I wasn’t sure if you were going to ask me a question or you were making a statement about your displeasure.”
“Everybody has opinions on things and positive/negative that’s the beauty in what we do and people are free to express those opinions. I’m happy that you like NXT and I’m happy you’re looking forward to that show. You know some people dislike some things, there are other people who dislike what we do in NXT and there are people that like what we do there. Everybody’s got an opinion and the great thing for us is no matter what it is, positive/negative, we don’t have a shy fan base that is afraid to let us know.”
“They will let us know and whether we decide to take that message immediately or whether it takes us a little bit to hear it, eventually we hear you. So you know, it is what it is but if people dislike something or like something that’s what their voice is for and we encourage that for sure.”
This was a pretty great approach to take for Triple H and just shows how much of a pro he is. Because this guy was certainly buried in a lot of ways with his answer, but at the same time, Triple H didn’t really say how he’d run the main roster differently either, so it was a clever way to skirt the question either way.
