AEW star Daniel Garcia says new WWE Head of Creative Triple H is “one of the greatest ever”.
Daniel Garcia has been in All Elite Wrestling for one year now, but he had a very brief visit to WWE NXT before that.
Speaking on The Battleground Podcast, the Jericho Appreciation Society member discussed his experience in WWE and his thoughts on Triple H taking over creative for the company.
“My time in NXT was maybe a day. Triple H, I’m a huge fan of. I think he’s one of the greatest ever. He was one of my favorites when I was a kid. He’s offered us so many great memories that are kind of like my first memories in wrestling. Like the thumbs up, thumbs down, that kind of stuff is the first stuff that I remember watching when I was a kid. That really made me and my family really strong wrestling fans in that area. I mean, it was hard not to watch Triple H during that time. He was plastered all over the WWE product. He was the franchise player.”
Garcia continued on to discuss what he feels will change now that Triple H is in power, saying:
“I think it’s great that he’s taken over. I mean, I don’t know what their plans are over there, but I think it’s great. I think it’s going to give a lot of independent wrestlers great opportunities in professional wrestling at a very high level, and I think that’s good for everybody. More valid places for wrestlers to work is going to create a lot more opportunities for everybody around, and it’s going to create a lot more competition. I think healthy competition, maybe even some unhealthy competition, is good for everybody.”
Daniel Garcia is coming off the heels of his biggest win in All Elite Wrestling so far over Bryan Danielson on the July 27 Fight For The Fallen edition of AEW Dynamite.
