Triple H praised Peacock in a new interview, despite the platform censoring the Attitude Era, including his DX segment impersonating The Nation. Triple H’s ‘Angry’ AEW Backstage Rant Recently Leaked.
Triple H told Pardon My Take about a potential Shawn Michaels match with Adam Cole, “When [Shawn] was leaving, he ran into Adam Cole backstage, and they had a moment, and Shawn walked off. The internet blew up with people saying, ‘Oh my God, what if? What a tease. It’s the ultimate match.’ What they don’t know is three minutes prior to that, when Shawn’s music hit and he was walking out to the stage, his left knee gave out, and he started dancing because he almost fell off the stage. His left knee is so bad that it buckled on him while he was walking down the ramp. That match isn’t going to happen.”
He also said about Peacock, “So far I love it. So far it’s been great. Some people complain about it but so far it’s been good. I think people are enjoying it. In today’s world, does anything happen that people don’t complain about? I’m of the opinion, no matter what you do, people in their initial thought will question or criticize. Nothing is perfect in its first iteration.
There will be a lot of changes made. We’re aware of a lot of the things they (Peacock) had to get through. The transition was fast; they have to migrate a ton of talent. People don’t understand how much content there is on the WWE Network that has to migrate over to Peacock. It’s a work in progress. It’s great people like the WWE Network so much that they’re concerned about where it’s going. But I think in short order we’ll get there and people will be excited.
He also discussed the Hall of Fame selection process, “There’s a lot of people who put suggestions on it from within the company. You people across the board people are putting a lot of input into it. Then it gets narrowed down by different departments till we get to a base of more people than we need. And then Vince makes the final call on where it’s supposed to be.
Vince looks at Hall of Fame as a moment of entertainment as well. It’s not just about who’s going in at that moment; it’s part of a show. In years past you’d get to go on the stage and relive your career one more time. You want to make that a show across the board, not just a stodgy show when you’re an hour and forty five in and you regret watching. He wants it to have ups and downs and to be entertainment.”
