Triple H spoke with the media after Wednesday’s WWE NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver – Night 1 special. Towards the end of it, he was asked about a recent NXT talent meeting and what he had stated during it.
The meeting was about NXT’s upcoming move to Tuesday nights. It was inaccurately reported that Triple H made some references about AEW and the competition with Dynamite. It was later reported that Triple H said nothing about All Elite Wrestling, but rather the focus was on the positives of NXT moving to a different night.
“Yeah, look if I wanted everybody to know what was in the meeting, I would have put out a memo, and you guys could have just got it from one of your sources firsthand and printed it. It was a conversation with our talent, that was exactly that.
It was informational to tell them where we’re going. Meetings that we have all the time. Given COVID restrictions, we had a lot less than we normally would. As far as the content of the meeting that was reported by a lot of people and elsewhere, completely inaccurate.
Never said, never brought up, nobody else was ever brought up. Wasn’t about other people, wasn’t about other brands, or companies or anything else. It was a factual meeting to tell people where we’re going, where we’re headed and to motivate them going into the future. Nothing more, nothing less.”
