It’s fair to say that Triple H has had an eventful career. With 25 years working for WWE, there isn’t much The Game hasn’t done inside the squared circle.
AEW commentator Jim Ross thinks Triple H achieved his best work outside of the ring, however. Speaking on his Grilling JR Podcast, JR noted that creating WWE NXT is what The Cerebral Assassin will be best remembered for.
Stating that The Game is often criticised for marrying into the McMahon family, Ross made it clear that he has no place judging Triple H for who he fell in love with.
Here is the full quote, courtesy of Wrestling Inc:
“I think over the long haul, because matches come and go, his legacy may be a bit like mine, I’d rather my legacy be for the talent that I signed and the roster I helped build more than my announcing. I think Triple H’s best work at the end of the day will be building NXT as a third brand in a very crowded space within WWE.
He evolved into becoming one of the greatest heels in the history of the brand. I think he had to mature, he had to get his hand around his infamy, a growing period. Because he married into the McMahon family, he’s been ostracized by a lot of people and criticized because of who he fell in love with. I told Chyna that more than once, I can’t legislate what people fall in love, that’s beyond the talent relations scope.
Obviously it was true love because they have 3 children, they’ve been married for many many years with very high profile jobs, so apparently they’ve found their true love. How could I or anybody else legislate that or judge that? It’s not fair.”
With Jim Ross working for NXT’s rival company, AEW, it’s nice to see that the battle-lines are truly contained within the ropes.
Triple H recently appeared on Raw, facing Randy Orton in a Street Fight.
