Speaking on a media call earlier today, Triple H responded to the comments made by Undertaker a while ago calling today’s WWE “soft”.
The comments caused quite a stir at the time, and it seemed like Undertaker was referring to both the product and the wrestlers themselves.
Triple H said:
“Everybody has a piece of the business and the business always morphs and changes, and people have opinions and you can agree with them, you can disagree with them. Taker has always been one of those guys that is very bluntly honest and the great thing about him, though, is he’s bluntly honest with that opinion. ‘Here’s how I think it should be, and here’s how I could help you to get there’. So he’s wide open to all of that. His comments and his intentions are always with the best of intent or desire to improve.
“I do believe he has a wealth of knowledge that, if he speaks… There’s certain guys in the business that if they speak, they’ve been around a long time, seen a lot of things and they’ve earned the right to, if they speak, you listen and you take their point of view and you work with it. He’s one of those guys for sure. So, if he says it and believes it, there’s something to it, then again every generation is different and what people are willing to accept in generations, everybody believes that certain generations of music are better than others too and, at the end of the day, all of this is opinion, we all like what we like, we all dislike what we dislike, and we give our opinions on it.
“It really comes down to, ‘What do the masses of people like?’. The successful companies can tap in long term to the masses of people and get the most people to buy into, to like, to want to participate with today’s product, so that’s where it’s at. And again, for Taker, I absolutely respect his opinion and take it into account and look forward to working with him on making it all better – on every level.”
Triple H has previously said that it’s likely Undertaker will become a trainer in NXT.
