Triple H made an appearance on After The Bell with Corey Graves where he reacted to the claims by Tommaso Ciampa.
Ciampa made an appearance on Lillian Garcia’s podcast where he talked about the lack of desire to go to the big two brands in WWE
This is where Ciampa stated that if he can work a reduced schedule in NXT then he can extend his career instead of wasting those bumps on the main roster at live events because of his neck injury.
Thus, he threatened to retire if he’s called up to the main roster. For more on that, click here.
“I think there’s a part of Ciampa that comes down to wear and tear, “Triple H stated. “Physicality of in his current place. Physically could he handle the schedule? Could he handle the grind and the wear and tear and everything else of a full run on Raw or SmackDown? It’s a different beast.
“Even though that schedule has now dropped and has become much more manageable if you have a family and everything else. But for him, he probably looks at it and says, ‘Look, if I’m on the main roster, I’ll have a run that’s this long. If I was on NXT with a lessened schedule and I’m much more manageable, I have a run that’s this long.’ He’d rather do this for a long period of time. Then transition into doing all the other stuff that he loves.”
Triple H added that when Ciampa’s run is over, he thinks Ciampa will be a phenomenal coach.
