Triple H on not seeing NXT as competition to AEW

In WWF, Triple H gained industry fame after co-founding the influential D-Generation X stable, which became a major element of the "Attitude Era" in the 1990s. After winning his first WWF Championship in 1999, he became a fixture of the company's main event scene, and over the course of his career, has been considered by many wrestling journalists and industry peers to be one of the best professional wrestlers of all-time.

Triple H has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, closing the company's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, seven times. Triple H has also won a number of championships in his career, being a five-time Intercontinental Champion, a two-time world tag team champion, and a fourteen-time world champion.

He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, and a King of the Ring tournament winner. Later in his career, Triple H gained notability for his behind-the-scenes work at WWE, founding the developmental branch NXT, and gaining praise for his business acumen in professional wrestling.

Outside of wrestling, Triple H has been a figure of substantial media attention due to his marriage to Stephanie McMahon, daughter of Vince and Linda McMahon, who are majority owners of WWE. In 2019, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the stable D-Generation X.

In a long interview with talkSPORT, The Game commented on not seeing NXT as competition to AEW: “To me, people can say what they want, how they want. I don’t approach it like as a competitive thing or it’s anything else, we’re just going to put on our shows.

We’re going to put on our shows when we need to put them on, in the best places we need to put them on, in the right timeslots for them and the best talent I can find in the world – and we already have them. I’m confident in that.

When I look across the board at NXT in general and NXT in the UK here, we put on show after show of the highest calibre – not one match or two matches, the entire show. So I have no doubt”.
