The overseer of NXT, Triple H, recently sat down with Sky Sports while in London this week. During the interview, the two parties discussed numerous topics regarding the WWE product, including; Carmella’s controversial victory at the Money In The Bank PPV which saw; James Ellsworth, take down the briefcase for her.
Here’s what Triple H had to say on the topic:
Triple H:“I wasn’t there, but it doesn’t seem right, although we are still trying to confirm that James Ellsworth is 100% a man. He did grab the briefcase and hand it down to Carmella, we are entertainment, but the thing that I don’t want to get passed up in this situation is that the women are being given that opportunity just like the men and that is what this is really about. The entertainment component aside, to treat these women like the athletes that they are and in some ways have always been, I think you’re seeing that in the world.”
“I think the world is finally coming to terms that women are as great. Sometimes better athletes than men and deserve that same platform to showcase what they do as the men do. Most times, they knock it out of the park and the world is coming to a position now where they appreciate that every bit as much as the men’s competitions. We’re at the front of that and we want to give them that opportunity and let them shine in a way that they never have had before.”
