Did Triple H steal Stokely Hathaway's CD Player? Yeah, probably, but we don't really have a solid answer on that yet.
We're going to try to find out, but if you thought the off-the-wall concepts that Stokely Hathaway brought to his yet-to-be-officially-named character's Twitter got him in hot water, you'd be wrong. When Fightful spoke to Triple H on the NXT media call recently, he told us that people like Stokely and Nikki Cross making their own material is all aces.
"I think it's great, any time talent can step out there and build their brand, themselves, their characters, and what they're doing. With social media, everything is a double-edged sword, so you watch what you put out there, and what you do. It's a great opportunity for all of them. It's something that we're encouraging and trying to work with them on at the Performance Center on how to become their own content creator. It's easier to do now, technology-wise to do your own stuff. It's exciting for them," said Triple H.
It was hardly confirmed that Triple H has actually seen the videos, though. The guy seems kind of busy, and said that WWE does have a team that monitors everything to make sure it stays above board.
"As for our ability to see all of it -- obviously we a large team that's in charge of that. We have a billion social media followers and talent with big accounts. It's hard for me personally to keep track of everything everyone does. They're all over it. It's an exciting time for talent. I'd use the example of the 24/7 Title and Drake Maverick making the wanted posters. He did something funny on his own and made these wanted posters and started to stick them up backstage and we thought it was great. We put it into the show and made it part of that because of his creativity on that side," Triple H told us.
