• Triple H On Why WWE Recently Signed TNA Veterans

As we noted before, WWE recently signed TNA Hall of Famer Abyss and TNA Veteran Sonjay Dutt.

During a recent media conference call, Triple H was asked about why Abyss & Dutt were signed by WWE and below is what “The Game” said:

“We’re always on the lookout for talented people that can contribute to the product and to the WWE as a whole. It doesn’t matter where they’re from, the quality people that are talented, that have a passion for this and want it to go to the next level and succeed, I’m always looking forward to those people. So, for me, Sonjay coming in here, Abyss coming in here in behind the scenes roles, we’re going to see where that best fit is for them.

I’ve heard of them, I know of them. So many people speak highly of them and their jobs over the years, from a talent standpoint and other standpoint, so, I’m looking forward to working with them and seeing where they best fit through all of this, as we all are.

Everybody here will determine where they fit, what they want to do, and how they can help contribute in the best way to the product going forward.”
