Triple H spoke with Sports Illustrated to promote Wednesday’s WWE NXT episode on the USA Network.
In this interview, he spoke about a wide range of pro-wrestling related topics including WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon’s involvement with NXT.
This is where Triple H was asked whether Vince’s influence in NXT is a positive or negative. He also talked about if McMahon plans to step in and work on the brand.
“Everything that happens within WWE has Vince’s fingerprints on it,” he said. “There is no NXT without Vince. It wouldn’t exist without him. He wants NXT to be different, something for the more passionate fan base. It’s a darker, grittier feel, it’s different. He totally understands that. But he has no desire to be in the day-to-day operations. Vince has a lot of other things on his plate.”
