Triple H appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show earlier today to talk about WrestleMania. Among several things asked, Helwani tried to find out if there were any surprises in store for fans that tune in on Saturday and Sunday. Triple H did not say much but he did say that fans might be shocked to see what Rob Gronkowski does on the show. He also noted that some parts of the show will be live along with the matches that have already been taped.
Triple H said, “So you know Gronkowski is hosting. People have said ‘what are your plans for Gronk?’ I said we don’t have plans for Gronk, Gronk has plans for us…I think he’s going to do some really cool stuff that people will be shocked that he actually does. I think that the event itself will be spectacular while obviously not in a stadium with 70-80,000 people.”
Triple H did not give too many details on how WrestleMania will look but it sounds like the production will be more elaborate than what we’ve been seeing in recent weeks on Raw and Friday Night SmackDown.
“It looks spectacular,” Triple H continued. “The look and the feel will be phenomenal. I think that talent really stepped up to bring the energy and the excitement knowing how important this was. And there’s a lot of things things that will take place, both live and taped that will be taking place from alternative locations.”
“Sometimes I think these moments and times are things that allow you to think outside the box and do things that you wouldn’t necessarily have the ability to do. If WrestleMania was just WrestleMania in a stadium, we would be approaching it like we always do. We’re approaching this differently. From day one, when we thought we were gonna do this, we thought how can we make it different and unique and how can we capitalize on the situation that we’re in. I think we’ve done that. I think there will be some things on there that might change the way we do business going forward even after this.”
