Triple H has always been a big supporter of the women's division in wrestling, especially since he devoted himself to the NXT project. In fact, he never misses the opportunity to compliment the WWE athletes when they reach a goal and often underlines, like everyone else, how the women's division of NXT is the best in the world.
Unfortunately, however, he has become the protagonist, in the last few hours, of some statements that are more or less questionable, which certainly open an interesting debate, a debate that is now part of the culture of sport and entertainment and that, unfortunately, will probably continue for a long time.
Triple H has been able to gather some pretty sweet assets for himself
During the press conference for NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Triple H was asked by Inside The Ropes journalist Gary Cassidy for an opinion on the all-female ppv that will be organized by NWA in collaboration with Mickie James.
Here are his words: "Equality is equality. It's not 'I want my show' […] If I told you that I'm doing a male-only program and I didn't want the women involved, it would be criticized, and I'm not saying it's right or wrong”.
Then he referred to Mickie James' invitation for NWA POWERRR, which pointed out that any female wrestler, beyond her contract with other companies, can participate in the ppv: regardless of their contractual status.
”I'm sorry. From the point of view of a business person, then why do we have a contractual status? It doesn't make sense to me. If you want to fight against the best women in the world, come to WWE. That's where I am.
If you want to go elsewhere and say that they are there, this is an opinion, and you can go." At the end of the speech, he also said he was open to the possibility of another PPV like Evolution, but not at this moment.
Most of the athletes and wrestlers at the WWE are known to have taken up a ring name. So has Triple H. His real name is Paul Michael Levesque. Prior to Triple H, Paul Michael Levesque used to go by several ring names such as Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Terra Ryzing, Terra Risin' and Terror Rising.
According to sources, Triple H salary is $3.2 million in 2018, which is a significant improvement over his salary of $2.8 million in 2016. He receives a basic salary of $1 million as a wrestler. The rest of his salary can be accounted to him acting as the Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Talents and Live Events for WWE.
