Triple H On Vince McMahon Telling Him To Go Forward With NXT, Hulk Hogan Gives Props To Triple H


USA Today has a new article up on Triple H to promote the return of WWE Tough Enough. He commented on putting WWE NXT together:

“It was the thing that was lacking to me, and I said to Vince, ‘Twenty years from now, where are we going to get all these guys from?’ And he said ‘What do we do about it?’ I started putting together this plan in my head and he and I worked on it, and he said, ‘I think this is a great thing. Go do it.’ And that’s what we’ve done there.”

Triple H also commented on talents like Neville, Sami Zayn or Bray Wyatt going out in front of main roster audiences for the first time:

“To see them go out there and knock it out of the park and see how happy they are, it’s awesome, man. In some ways it’s like watching my kids.”

The article also features Hulk Hogan praising The Game:

“There’s a rumble there. Paul is doing a lot of stuff right. That next generation wasn’t there, so Hulk Hogan, ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior continued being stars into the ’90s where they should have been the next Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior or Macho Man. Kudos to Paul, because he’s the guy who’s grabbed the bull by the horns and made this possible for the legacy to keep on going.”
