Triple H Talks Roman Reigns – Rumble Controversy, Calling Out Sting, Steve Austin, WWE Network, More

Above is Michael Cole’s latest sitdown interview with Triple H. Below are highlights:

* Cole bring up the travel issues this week and noted that it led to a live SmackDown. Triple H said that people can’t tell WWE what to do, and they’ll do RAW even when they’re told not to.

* WWE Network hitting 1 million subscribers is brought up. HHH called it very exciting and pegged it the fastest growing digital subscription service in the world. To anyone that hasn’t tried it, “a million people can’t be wrong.”

* Triple H talked about appearing on Steve Austin‘s podcast after RAW this Monday, and noted that Austin is going after all the big fish. He said that Austin has become an amazing interviewer, and he’s looking forward to the podcast. He enjoyed Austin’s interview with Vince, and is looking forward to speaking with Austin.

* In addition to HHH on Austin’s podcast, he plugged NXT Takeover on February 11th and Fast Lane on February 22nd. He was asked about challenging Sting to appear at Fast Lane. He said that he has a problem with Sting and Sting doesn’t belong here and “never has.” He has a big problem with Sting changing the course of WWE events, so unlike Roger Goodell, he’s going to “show the world what happens” when you mess with him.

* Cole asked Triple H about the Royal Rumble controversy and what his announcement on RAW will be. Triple H acted like he was going to give more details and replied, “watch RAW Monday, because it’s none of your business until then.” He then said that he went back and watched the Rumble match and it’s “just not right.” He said that the whole world knew it wasn’t right and voiced their opinion. Once again, unlike the NFL, we address our problems and “we’re not going to turn our back on our balls. We are going to go face to face with our problem with our balls and we’re going to address them Monday night on RAW.”

Bobby Lashley Talks WWE Being At A Standstill And TNA Being On The Rise, CM Punk In MMA, More

Source: Give Me Sport

Give Me Sport has an interview with TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley, who was promoting the current TNA UK tour. Below are some highlights:

How TNA can “attack” WWE’s dominance:

“I think right now that we’re building in the right direction and I don’t want to say they are declining but they are at a bit of a standstill. Getting mixed reactions, while thats happening, we’re rising up. I think that in the future it will get to a point where there will be a little bit more competition between the two.”

Differences between WWE and TNA:

“You know here I like the cohesive unit and everyone is on the same page, no real back stabbing and none of that politics that usually go on, especially in the wrestling business. I know that everyone coming here is like we’re about to blow this show outta there. Everyone is on the same page with that. People will enjoy the things we do and in the long run they’ll be a shift.”

How CM Punk will fare in MMA:

“I think he’ll do great, he’s had plenty of time to train. Once he has got all of the training in. I believe he’ll go out there and show the crowd that he is ready for it and I think he’ll earn a lot of respect for doing it. I know a lot of people will be watching, I know I will!”

Lashley also discussed his prior TNA stint, which younger talent he’d like to face in the main event scene, if he’d been pranked in the locker room, if wrestling can return to its popularity in the 90s and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.

Backstage Talk on What WWE Thinks About Pushing Daniel Bryan, Possible WrestleMania 31 Opener

- It was said this week by a WWE source that no matter how hard the fans rally for Daniel Bryan and no matter how much he gets over, top WWE officials are not going to see him as a top guy that can be the face of the company.

Before the news came out this week that WWE was planning on doing Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania 31, there was a feeling among many that officials would not give in like they did last year and Bryan wouldn’t be getting pushed to the WrestleMania main event again.

With that said, there was a rumor that Ziggler vs. Bryan could open WrestleMania 31.

Bad News Barrett Was Supposed To Come Out As CM Punk In Chicago After Punk’s WWE Departure

After a lengthy absence due to injury, Bad News Barrett is back on the road with the Intercontinental Championship in tow. Barrett took to Chris Jericho‘s Talk is Jericho podcast and spoke about a variety of topics, namely a high profile nixed segment.

Barrett was supposed to give the fans of Chicago a bit of a surprise… sort of. During WWE’s 2014 return to Chicago, Barrett was slated to come out to recently departed CM Punk‘s entrance theme and deliver his signature “bad news” to Punk’s hometown crowd.

“It was in the script until about thirty minutes before the show and they pulled it. I think Paul Heyman ended up doing something similar. I didn’t have a storyline angle or important angle at that time, and Heyman and Brock (Lesnar) did,” Barrett said.

Barrett also said it probably wouldn’t have been the best use of heat, but he still thinks the segment would have been hilarious.

You can listen to Barrett’s full interview at this link.
