WWE Stars Not Allowed To Slap Fans’ Hands During Entrance On TV, Except Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey WrestleMania 34

• Triple H & Stephanie McMahon On Who They Think Is The Greatest Of All Time

During a recent appearance on ESPN First Take, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon revealed who they think is the greatest superstar in the history of WWE.

Below is what they had to say:

Stephanie McMahon:

“For me personally it’s got to be Andre the Giant. I think a lot of people would say The Rock, a lot of people might say John Cena, especially recently, but I would say Andre. He’s a pop culture icon that has transcended media around the world. Of course we have our HBO special that’s going to be premiering in a couple of weeks in April and it’s just going to be an incredible reflection on the life of an icon.”

Triple H:

“For me the answer is kind of mixed because there are different aspects to that. You can talk about the impact of Hulk Hogan or The Rock and him now being the biggest box office attraction in Hollywood, you can talk about “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. But there’s one guy for me within our industry that resonates beyond all else. When I go to India or the Middle East or Europe or Japan or Australia, South America, it doesn’t matter – one of the names that’s always brought up first and foremost is The Undertaker. The character, iconic character of that… it just transcends everything and it is for so many people that kind of character that encapsulates what WWE is.”

• WWE Stars Not Allowed To Slap Fans’ Hands During Entrance On TV, Except Ronda Rousey

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE wrestlers aren’t to slap fans’ hands during their entrances on televised shows as it then takes time for the wrestlers to reach the ring.

However, only Ronda Rousey is allowed to do that during her entrance as WWE officials want Rousey to get over as a babyface and eventually become one of company’s top draws.
