Triple H Holds Conference Call Ahead Of NXT Takeover
Friday, May 19, 2017
Triple He held a conference call with media and reporters ahead of this weekend's Takeover event in Chicago. Here are some of the highlights.
About Hideo Itami having his biggest match yet in the U.S. and if it doesn't work out.
He doesn't know what happens if this match doesn't work out for Itami. He wants to keep looking at it from a positive point of view. He felt bad that Itami had so many injuries to overcome. If it doesn't work out they will see what Itami wants to do.
Are we looking at more frequent Takeover events?
It was a "perfect storm" as there is a lot of time between Wrestlemania and Summerslam. He has wanted to do a Takeover in Chicago since he started NXT.
Drew Galloway and how he reinvented himself.
Drew leaving was the best thing that could have happened to him at the time. He has always been extremely talented but he needed to walk away and go prove himself and H really respects that he did it. He added that he thinks Jinder Mahal is another person in that vein. Guys get in a rut in the WWE, not being where they want on the card but they are making good money. It’s not easy to take the chance to gamble on yourself so he respects that.
Was Ciampa injured at last night’s NXT event?
He turned his ankle so they got him out of there. He was X-rayed and there was no serious damage. It was a sprain. He is up and moving around today. He will get checked out by medical but as of right now, he’s good to go tomorrow. He would hate for him to miss out tomorrow as he and Johnny have a lot of history in Chicago.
Is there was a backup plan?
They will see how it goes today and if it worsens, he will work on it later today.
