Triple H Pre-Show Media Call Before NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day

Triple H speaks to media before NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day

- Triple H mentions that Barstool's Brandon Walker will be on the NXT Takeover Vengeance Day Pre-Show.

- Triple H says Edge has been talking to him since before he returned at the 2020 Royal Rumble about coming to NXT and performing, and listed people he wanted to work with and wants to put over young talent. 

- HHH talks about weighing the options and balancing trying to work things in and around WrestleMania weekend, and deciding whether or not to have a standalone NXT Takeover event. 

- Triple H says Parker Boudreaux looks like Brock Lesnar, but he's gotta be trained and has to be safe before they can even think about what they're doing with him. 

- Triple H says Bronson Rechsteiner, Rick Steiner's son, is "coming in the door." We'll find out if that's a confirmation of his signing.

- Triple H says he's not a fan of having 38 different titles in a company and people just moving from one title to another.

- Triple H mentions that apps are not included in viewership numbers and appointment viewing is not the same as it used to be.

- Triple H says he was not heavily involved in the Royal Rumble at first, but WWE does consult with him over who he thinks would be good fits there.

- Triple H says "there's nothing to add to Velveteen Dream." He's still on the roster, still training, still at the PC. Says they've went over it with us a million times.

- Super Bowl was a busy time for Pat McAfee, says Triple H. Says that Pat and WWE love the controversy and people wondering. Pat asked for some time to breathe, and him finding out about his "firing" on the air was "greatly exaggerated," says Triple H

- Triple H says he has no knowledge of the Steve Cutler release or what went into it. They take COVID seriously across the board, per HHH. He says he only knows what he's read and what has been speculated to him and has not asked.
