WWE COO Triple H has been part of several rivalries over his career, on-screen and off-screen. The brains behind NXT found a new rival on Wednesday nights in the form of AEW last year and took the new company head-on by officially promoting the black-and-gold show as the third brand of WWE.
Although NXT has fared well on Wednesday nights, it has lost to AEW on several occasions, which is quite a tough pill to swallow for the Game. However, he is confident about his own show, and even gave props to All Elite Wrestling in the recent annual shareholders call.
Triple H was asked about AEW’s rising numbers and he applauded the rivals for putting out good content on Wednesday nights, before affirming that WWE remained strong despite AEW’s rise.
“To me, there’s a moment in time when you begin something and it’s very exciting and it’s fresh and there’s some interest in it, certainly. But it’s a big world. We continue to be focused on our product, continue to be focused on the development of our stars and our performers.”
“And as Vince said earlier, we have a very long track record of doing this incredibly successfully for many, many, many years, and we will continue to do so.”
Although both the companies have maintained that there is no rivalry as such, their actions speak otherwise. WWE has constantly kept up with AEW’s booking, by organizing specials and bringing bigger stars to NXT in order to compete with Dynamite.
