Triple H Media Scrum Call Ahead Of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver

Triple H speaks with media about the NXT move to Tuesdays, NXT Takeover: Stand and Deliver, and the PC!

- Triple H says nobody forces anyone to watch wrestling every night of the week, and it's good that there's availability and accessibility to everything.

- HHH is asked if the Heritage Cup will be defended in the future, and he says it's possible when the world opens up.

- Kenny McIntosh asks Triple H about Undertaker's "soft" comments, and he says Taker has a desire to always improve. Says that it's all opinion and different generations like different things.

- Triple H tells Gary Cassidy that he's not surprised about Chris Jericho appearing on Broken Skull Sessions with Steve Austin. He didn't know about it before today, though.

- Triple H says the format and managing commercials during a takeover will be a learning experience, and probably something they're working on until 7:50 on Wednesday.

- Jim Varsallone asks about Gable and Bobby Steveson. Triple H is very aware of Gable Steveson's Olympic trial schedule today. He's looking forward to working with both of them. He says Rick Steiner's son will be something "special."

- Triple H tells Alistair from Metro that Omos is a sponge. Did not specify if he has square pants, but says he's humble and happy about what he's doing.

- Triple H says Bad Bunny moved himself to Orlando and has been training every day at the Performance Center and working hard. Bad Bunny has earned his respect. He says a lot of people want the moment, but not the work that goes into it, and Bunny does.

- Triple H says Pat McAfee worked so hard at the in-ring, and they'll do more in the future. Scheduling is always tough with them. He says we'll see more crossover stuff from Raw, Smackdown and NXT.

- Triple H confirms to Alex McCarthy that AJ Styles has pestered him for a WrestleMania match. He says Styles could carry him to something and wouldn't tell him no, but ring shape and being in shape are not the same. HHH told Styles he wouldn't be able to have the time to prepare. HHH says he won't rule out a match with AJ Styles in the next year. He says a lot of old-timers tell him he's gotta have his big retirement match when that happens. In-ring is a bonus for him at this point.

- Triple H tells Connor Casey that he looks fondly on their Wednesday USA run for NXT. He thinks they'll have more visibility with Peacock. They'll constantly make changes.
