Triple H Reveals Advice Vince McMahon Gave Him Before WWE Departure

Triple H Reveals Advice Vince McMahon Gave Him Before WWE Departure WWE

Triple H has recalled the advice Vince McMahon gave him when the former CEO left the company.

Vince McMahon announced his retirement on July 22, amid ‘hush pact’ allegations. Following this, Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan became co-CEOs, and Triple H took over creative.

Speaking with Ariel Helwani, Triple H stated that the situation has been tough for Vince.

Noting that Vince told him to be confident when making decisions, Triple H said:

“He did, yeah. In some manner, I think for both of us, it’s a tough situation for him. I think in some manner, like, it’s even hard for me to picture now that he’s not in the equation, and he’s not in any way, shape, or form, but it’s hard to think that he’s not there. I think at that moment, it’s hard for him to think about somebody coming in and doing what he’s done for 50 years or whatever successfully better than anybody in the world.

“So yeah, there was definitely that moment, definitely giving me advice. But I think also in some manner, most of that advice was centered around like, ‘This is what you’ve been sitting next to me learning how to do for 25 years, or whatever that is, and you got this.

“Just be confident in your decision-making. Listen to people. Be open to ideas. Being collaborative with other people.’ Things like that were just wonderful advice. The truth is, it’s my father-in-law. He’s not involved in the day to day business, but if I had to say to him, like, ‘Man, I find this difficult to deal with’, he would give me some overall advice of like, ‘Just listen to people, work with the team, do these things.’ He’s a wealth of knowledge.”

The September 3 Clash At The Castle premium live event will conclude Triple H’s first pay-per-view cycle as Head of Creative.
