One of the ceremonial things which has to happen whenever a new WWE or NXT Superstar comes into the WWE Universe is to snap a picture with Triple H.
These pictures have become a tradition at this point and Triple H opened up about this subject on McMahonsplaining podcast.
“You know why I take pictures with everybody? Because I’m more famous,” Triple H said. “When I do that, and I take a picture, just on Twitter alone I got six million people that see it when I tap that picture. I make them something bigger, and that’s the attempt.”
But the fact is with everything Triple H has to do behind the scenes, sometimes it can get a little much to have to drop everything he needs to do in order to take a picture. But he continues to do it because he realizes how important it is to expose new talent to the WWE Universe.
“When they don’t need it, I don’t stand next to them anymore. When people ask me, ‘Well, why didn’t you stand next to that guy when he won the title on SmackDown?’ He doesn’t need it,” he said. “He didn’t need that promotion. If I can help them, I help them. If I can take them to another level, I try to take them to another level. That’s what this is all about, creating the future. If I can do that, and help create the future, then I do.”
“When I don’t need to step into that, I’m happy to step out of it,” he said. “Trust me, when they come to get me to shoot that picture when I’m pointing at the guy, it is the last thing I possibly want to do at that moment in time, is go take that picture, but I have to do it.”
