Despite coming up short against Aleister Black at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II, Lars Sullivan put in a very impressive performance, and one that didn’t go unnoticed.
In a post-show interview with Cathy Kelly, Triple H spoke at length about the terrifying man in red trunks.
Wrestlinginc.com summarised the Executive vice president of talents comments:
“Regarding Lars Sullivan losing to NXT Champion Aleister Black, Triple H pointed to how long he’s been doing this and said that is the unknown factor of how good Lars can become.
“He said there were a lot of people who said Lars didn’t belong in a NXT Title with Black but there really wasn’t a moment in the match where he didn’t look like he belonged, and that is the ultimate victory for Lars – that he was able to go toe-to-toe with Black.
“Triple H said you have to think Lars earned Black’s respect, you have to think he has set a template for everything else to come, that he could be the most dangerous person in NXT. Triple H believes the loss might actually be a blessing for Lars.
“He also said the drive & determination Lars will get coming out of this might make him more dangerous than he already is, if possible. Triple H went on with the praise for Lars and said he’s a guy that can do anything. Triple H believes Lars will be unstoppable once he’s been doing this for some time and isn’t making rookie mistakes”
Trips went on to praise Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, who put in one of the performances of the night in a loss against The Undisputed Era.
And he didn’t stop there, describing Ricochet and Velveteen Dream as “two of the most amazing pure athletes he’s ever seen in the ring”.
