Triple H talks about changing WWE’s perception in the media: Triple H’s Road to WrestleMania


14-time world champion, Paul Triple H Levesque-
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Joining the show. [CROSSTALK]
>>Good seeing you. Pleasure to meet you.>>In the 90s, I was trying to connect
WrestleMania to the rest of the world. It was difficult. We weren’t seeing with the same eyes,
so to speak. When you did do media, it was almost sometimes tongue in cheek
and you were scrambling to try to get whatever media you could to try to
promote the event as best as possible. To our fan base,
it was the greatest thing in the world. To everybody beyond that,
they still didn’t get it yet, and you had to really work hard to
convince them at every level, and any misstep was
a giant step backwards.>>You’re putting on a total different
hat on the business side, and that, typically with athletes, we struggle
trying to manage that transitioning over.>>I always had a fascination with
the behind the scenes of the business, even when I was a performer and
what it took and what it would take you to do
to get to that next level. So to step into today and to see the
embrace of the world, every form of media, whether it be entertainment or
sports, to now, not only do I wanna promote
the shows themselves and the actual product, but also to be
fascinated with the how and the why. How it’s created, how our athletes succeed
or fail, everything that goes into it, to see that level of interest
in what we do is just awesome. The superstars that you see
of today came from there. The superstars of tomorrow you will
watch tonight on NXT Takeover. Vince always says one day we’ll
be an overnight sensation. It’s happening one day at a time. And for me, coming from back then,
even before the Attitude era when business was not where we wanted it to be to
where it is today, it’s amazing. And to still be a part of that and to,
in some ways, be at the front of it with a lot of others but
at the front of it leading that charge and kind of helping take it outside of
our world to the masses is awesome.>>Thank you.
>>Thank you, appreciate it.>>Yeah, good luck to you, man.>>Thank you very much.>>Appreciate it. All the best to you.
