Triple H on WWE Cancelling plans for Rhea Ripley
Triple H revealed during a media call that Rhea losing the title to Charlotte was part of a big storyline that WWE has for Rhea.
"The world has changed," Triple H jokingly noted. "None of that plan exists or was able to -- everything changed, and I don't think anybody, at that moment, could have predicted... even when all this first started, you go back to March, and it seems like, in some ways, forever ago.
But if anybody would have said, even in March, 'look, in December, you're still going to be in lockdown. In December, this is going to have ramped up again and be possibly, arguably worse than it was before.' Everything is changing on a day-to-day basis, and it's hard to start to plan for next week let alone next year, next month [and] all of that.
"The one thing about Rhea, her honesty of that is great. When you're young, it doesn't take much to rack your confidence. When you're young and you're getting started and everything is rolling, it doesn't take much to have you go from an incredible high to an incredibly low and begin to question yourself and all those things."
He also stated that ever sportsperson in the world goes through a bad period and it is just part of all sports. "That's part of maturing in any sport," Triple H pointed out. "I watch my kids play sports, and they are hardly doing anything.
And then they get the ball thrown to them, they score one basket at the basketball game, and you just see this monumental shift in their entire body language to where all of a sudden they're LeBron James for a moment and playing at a different level.
As you mature and become more confident in yourself and believe in yourself and understand, it changes. That's all part of the process. I truly believe, long-term, that those are all valuable things. Sometimes, I think in the world today that everybody wants everything to have immediate success and then go very smoothly all the way to the end.
There's no lessons in that. There's no long-term value in that. If there's no struggle, there's no stripe. There's no difficulties in it. You don't grow as a performer. It's just easy, and to me, these are all learning experiences.
I look back at my career and moments in time that was amazing and moments in time that were incredible setbacks in my mind."
