Triple H sets a high bar for what he expects from the talent under the WWE NXT banner. That bar rises when a show is being held during WrestleMania weekend.
While speaking with ESPN, “The Game,” made it known that he thinks one match will be hard to follow. There are several top matches on this card but he thinks Johnny Gargano vs. Adam Cole for the vacant WWE NXT Title in 2 of 3 Falls Match will steal the show.
“I expect it to be hard to follow for the weekend. I don’t mean that as a knock on anybody, it’s just the level of talent there and the emotional storytelling component. It’s probably two of the guys, if you said to me, ‘Name two of the most consistent performers at all levels on any on the rosters that, no matter what, they’re going to knock it out of the park,’ it would be tough for me to come up with bigger names than Gargano and Adam Cole. I know this is going to be epic. I’m thrilled for both of them, I’m proud of both of them and this is the first of many moments like that for them across WrestleMania weekends, for sure.”
