WWE News: Triple H says WWE is Disney, describes how he moved from the ring to the corporate offices, and explains what's different about his new DVD
WWE star Triple H spoke with New Hampshire Magazine as hype for his upcoming DVD "The Kingdom Come." You can read the full interview at http://www.nhmagazine.com/October-2013/Q-A-With-Paul-Triple-H-Levesque/. Among the highlights:
Once you became an established WWE superstar, what put you on the eventual path to the executive level? I’ve enjoyed the creative process [of pro wrestling] almost as much as I enjoy going out there and doing it. Vince [McMahon, WWE head] used to joke with me and say, “When are you going to stop rolling around in the dirt and come and do some real work at the office?” and that eventually became, “I want you to be in this position when I can’t do this anymore,” which was the most flattering thing anybody could say me because he was the guy that created all of this.
You’ve been the subject of several DVDs in the past. What makes “Thy Kingdom Come” so unique? This one is much more of a documentary, as opposed to just a compilation of my matches. It’s about me, but my parents are in it, a lot of talent are in it. Even [longtime WWE Superstar] the Undertaker asked to be in it. Plus, they came to the offices and interviewed some people. It covers a lot of “corporate” Triple H.
Now that you are a driving force behind World Wrestling Entertainment behind the scenes, what does the future hold for this company? We are Disney. We are entertainment … not just one-dimensional. Just think: 10 years ago, Marvel was just the comic book guys. We are, and will continue to be, a growing global content provider for entertainment of all kinds.
Shore's Slant: Triple H has a great mind for wrestling and is more than worthy to be in his current position, and to be heir to the throne. That said, it's a little disingenuous for him not to at least mention being married to Stephanie as how he ended up in those spots. I get why he doesn't, what with all the people who think that's the sole reason, but the fact is that he probably would not be in the spot he is if it weren't for his marriage to Vince's daughter. Again, I'm not trying to take anything away from his abilities. In fact, I think WWE will ultimately improve once Hunter has full control.
