Triple H quizzed about Cody Rhodes’ throne smashing entrance and WWE/AEW rivalry

For the foreseeable future, it does seem WWE will be pitted against AEW against one another, at least in the eyes of fans who would like to see a rivalry or at least some competition.

That said, individuals on both sides are not doing much to dispel the idea. Only last Saturday, Cody Rhodes seemingly fired a shot at WWE and Triple H during his symbolic smashing of a throne entrance at Double or Nothing. He later denied he was taking a shot at The Game, but left it open to interpretation, especially for those fans that were running with it.

Fast forward to this past Monday night on Raw, Sami Zayn surprisingly name dropped AEW during a segment and whether it was scripted or not is still up for debate at this point.

On today’s media call for NXT TakeOver XXV, Triple H was asked about WWE’s newest rival AEW:

When H is directly questioned about Rhodes’ throne smashing at Double or Nothing, he replies:

“For me, I don’t even think about it. I just want to put on the best product possible with this TakeOver. I’m focused on this Saturday’s TakeOver XXV and continuing to grow the brand.”

WWE is a global machine, the biggest wrestling promotion in the world. Period. Are AEW getting under their skin at all or do we think they don’t merit a second thought for the higher ups? We’d love to hear your thoughts…

    I will say this about what HHH said at the HoF. It was not a shot at AEW it was a joke between a bunch of guys who have worked together for years, and very much typical of what you would expect from DX. The fact that Billy was at the ceremony says there was nothing malicious or petty about it. Hell, the fact that they even included Billy after he signed with AEW shows you that HHH has enough sway these days to get these things through. Without him being where he is now, I very much doubt Vince would have included Billy.

    Redundant: “pitted against AEW, against one another.” Will this websites article writer editing skill never change?
