Triple H joined the WWE in 1995, twenty-seven years later he replaced the most prolific Professional Wrestling promoter of all-time, his Father-in-Law Vince McMahon.
When Triple H was an in-ring competitor, he knew when it was time to play the game, and he knew how to play it. He is now the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and the Head of Creative. Now, he has all the control, and the wrestling world awaits to see if he can take it.
Triple H was a guest on Logan Paul's Podcast on Tuesday, The Logan Paul ImPaulsive Podcast. Paul is also one of Triple H's newest signee's. Triple H talked to Paul about the shoes that he is going to fill, now, that McMahon is no longer running day-to-day operations.
“I’ll tell you this about Vince. [He has] massive shoes that I couldn’t even dream of beginning to think I could fill. The gap there, in this moment, is massive, but the opportunity to take it in a direction it has never gone before is [also] massive. I’m thrilled for that opportunity. We have an unbelievable team. It’s never gonna be one person, one person could never even begin to fill these shoes. It’s going to an entire team of people to jump in those shoes. Without him, none of this [exists]. The vision to take it from this tiny little thing happening in bars to a global sensation like nothing else. WrestleMania is one of the most valuable sports franchises on the planet. Billions of social media followers, the 70 billion+ lifetime views on YouTube. The level of fan interaction, following, dedication and passion for what we do, there’s nothing like it. I’ll put any sport against that, I’ll put any form of entertainment against that. Certain moves only resonate in certain countries. Certain sports only resonate in certain countries. Name one that goes everywhere, it’s WWE.”
