• Triple H Reveals What Happened In His First Meeting With Vince McMahon

During a recent interview with LoudWire for “Wikipedia: Fact Or Fiction”, WWE Hall of Famer Triple H recalled his first meeting with Vince McMahon.

Below is what The Game said:

“I came up and met with Vince, first meeting with him I don’t think he knew who I was, I think somebody had just asked him to take the meeting. I left thinking, ‘Well, I guess they weren’t that interested in me.’

I wrestled Starrcade, was my first PPV ever, I wrestled Alex Wright at Starrcade. They got Vince on the phone, and then Vince said, ‘Hey, I saw you at Starrcade yesterday, I want you to come here.’ And now he was what I wanted him to be.

He was like, ‘I want you to come here, I think you’re a talented kid. I’m not offering you any spot, I’m offering you a spot. I don’t guarantee money.’ I had told him when I came in, it’s not about the money for me, I want to work everyday, I want to work the best, I want to be the best.

And he said, ‘I promise you this, you’ll work here every single day, you’ll work with the best guys in the business, and if you want to get great, this is where to do it.’

That was all I needed to hear.”
