Triple H Talks About World Of Sport And The WWE's Altered Plans For A UK Division

Triple H was a guest on The World According To Wrestling Podcast, where the subject was the British Independent Wrestling scene. One major topic was WWE's foray into the United Kingdom with their successful UK Championship Tournament back in January, as well as the next step being taken by the world's largest wrestling company.

Triple H revealed that the World of Sport special, which aired last December on ITV, slightly changed the WWE's plans for a full-fledged UK Division.

"Did it change our timing a little bit because of when they positioned their show? Yeah, but we are talking by maybe months or something not speeding up the process in terms of getting it done. We've been working on this for a long time. Any other show aside, if they are successful I'm happy for them. And, at the end of the day, it all helps the industry so we just do what we do. And I think we do it better than anyone else on the planet."

The podcast also included an interview with Revolution Pro Wrestling (RevPro) founder Andy Quildan, during which he was asked about WWE's perceived attempt to take over a major portion of the British scene, a fear that many independent promoters had earlier this year.

"Worrying about what everyone else is doing and trying to get into pretend wrestling wars with people is just ridiculous. The fact of the matter is if WWE wants to come over and take over UK wrestling, they're going to do it. It is what it is. Let's continue to do what we do at the highest level possible.

"I can see people's mentality with 'they're trying to take over British wrestling' and my argument is if you look at, for example, theatre. Look at the West End. How many different theatrical productions are going on in the West End every single night? All at the same time. All competing with one another… I'm not phased by it. It's a very interesting time and certainly a lot of stuff's changing but at the same time it's nice for British wrestling not to be an afterthought for once."
