During the most recent episode of Bruce Prichard (Brother Love)’s “Something To Wrestle With” podcast, Prichard revealed that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, did not believe that one of the greatest WWE superstars of all-time, Triple H, originally did not have what it took to be a main event player.
Here’s what Prichard had to say:
“I do remember Corny and Vince McMahon saying that Triple H would be a mid-card guy at best early on in his career and Russo was a huge proponent of Triple H and I dare say that; without Russo at the helm at the time, Hunter probably would not have gotten the breaks that he got at the time. Russo was Triple H’s biggest advocate at the time and then Vince McMahon became, but Hunter was one of those guys who was always around, always asking questions and wanting to be a part of whatever he could do to learn. I liked Hunter because I always liked his attitude, just willing to do whatever it took to learn the business, but Russo was definitely pushing Hunter and had an awful lot of ideas for him.”
Prichard On The Rumors Of Road Dogg & Billy Gunn Not Being Selected By Triple H & Shawn Michaels To Join DX:
“The guy that brought Billy and Road Dogg to Vince’s attention was Shawn Michaels, who saw those two guys. They were singles; one was a Rockabilly and then Jesse James, it was Shawn Michaels who brought them to Vince and wanted them to be a part of DX and felt that they would be a great team together.”
