WWE”s Triple H recently did an interview with USA Today’s “For The Win” to talk about WWE NXT Women’s Champion Asuka. Here’s what he had to say:
Asking Vince McMahon to keep Asuka in NXT: “I would never want to limit someone’s growth or their opportunities, but when Vince brought it up to me, I said the one person we can’t afford to lose is Asuka. You could take everybody else you want to take – and trust me, he did – but I need her as anchor. If I lose her and everybody else, I’m doomed.”
Asuka’s undefeated streak and why it matters in an entertainment-based business: “It’s the faith to say that you’re that person and to say that if you hold that championship that the belief is there in you to lead a division or a company or a group and to be in that position. For somebody like her, here’s that faith for that long of a period of time and we’re not beating you, we’re keeping a championship on you and keeping it fresh. That’s a pretty bold statement of how good you are.”
