• Triple H Receives Big Praise From Released WWE Wrestler
Former TNA & WWE Superstar EC3 (Dixie Carter’s kayfabe nephew Ethan Carter III) spoke to NBC Sports about Triple H, who is now in charge of WWE creative.
Here’s what the former 2-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion had to say:
“What I noticed about Paul, Triple H, is he’s a real leader and I got a lot from watching him work as much as the conversations he’s very open to having, and how hands down he was with the talent in NXT from top to bottom.
Watching him work and lead and address rooms and address people as people as opposed to just objects, I had a lot of respect for it. I think they’ll be in very good hands with him under the helm in his direction from what I’ve seen.”
While being interviewed on an episode of the ‘In The Kliq’ podcast, WWE Ruthless Aggression Era veteran Dolph Ziggler also praised Triple H’s creative direction, by saying the following:
“Triple H has been in the system from start to finish, helping young guys out in NXT, helping us out backstage, hell, even when I was in the Spirit Squad 15 years ago, he and Shawn Michaels were helping us out.
So I think it’s a great fit. That’s the guy to do it. It’ll be a fun way to just switch things up a little bit for us. But I mean, we’re surrounded by some of the greatest minds in the world. We’re very lucky, my, I would say, teammates, because we all kind of work together to put on this awesome show.
There’s something special about having all this talent, all these Superstars, all these great minds behind the scenes, and when it comes together as this group effort, it can become something special. It’s the greatest thing in the freakin’ world when it goes great for us.”
