Triple H Says He Wants Metallica To Play At WrestleMania, Talks Poppy


During a recent interview with Revolver, Triple H commented on wanting Metallica to play at WrestleMania, Poppy’s relationship with NXT, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Poppy’s relationship with NXT: “Poppy this week came on our show, and she’s played before and done various stuff. We’ve got five tracks we have access to, she came in and did collaborative merch with us, released those tracks on live TV. What other platform or genre can do that? It doesn’t feel forced or like you’re sticking a square peg in a round hole. Our fans can smell that from a mile away, if it’s not authentic. I can tell you, I don’t think Poppy knew that much about us at first. When we met for the first time she came off her bus at Full Sail, as I was walking across she had full-body pajamas on as she’s walking across the parking lot. Neil, our music guy said, “She might stay fully in character today, I’m not sure.” We walked over, I introduced myself and she was like “Hi, I’m Poppy,” in her voice. We walked away, I looked at Neil and was like, “Yeah she’s perfect for us, this is gonna work out great.”

On his dream performers for WWE and wanting Metallica to play at WrestleMania: “Oh, Metallica. [Laughs] If we can get Metallica, it’s a dream come true, if they play Wrestlemania I’ll be happy. I’m constantly throwing ideas at people at every level. The bigger they get, you’d be amazed at the level of people who are like, “I’d love to do something with you guys,” it’s just a matter of coordinating to make things work and to get them in place. When we’re three or four months out from a pay-per-view, we’ll have two or three ideas on the line, sometimes they work sometimes they don’t. We’ve got a lot of epic things. If something doesn’t work, there’s always the next time.”
