Triple H Talks Indie Wrestling Scene On After The Bell With Corey Graves

Triple H On Indie Wrestling Scene: “Some Of These Independent Wrestling Promotions Are About To Go Away”

Triple H recently took some time to discuss NXT UK’s impact on the UK independent scene. Triple H went on to say how certain promotions that are shutting their doors are the ones that aren’t handling its’ wrestlers needs appropriately.

Featured below are some of the highlights of Triple H talking about this subject during his recent appearance on the official WWE podcast, “After The Bell with Corey Graves.”

On indie promotions closing their doors: “Yes, some of these indies are going to go away. The ones that are going to go away, the ones that are paying you $25 when they promised you $75, the ones that have a ring that didn’t hold up, the ones that didn’t have medical there, the ones that didn’t care about you, they were just booking you because they were hoping to sell some tickets and you had a little bit of buzz so they were hoping to sell some tickets and they could care less what you do when you do it.”

On the differences between those promotions and NXT UK “We wanted to work with the ones that were cultivating talent. The ones that were encouraging them to become better, working with them on promos or giving them guidance, right or wrong, on their matches that had equipment that was functioning, that had medical care if you did get injured while you were there that at least you weren’t laying there for 45 minutes while they were trying to figure out if they could get an ambulance to come or call you an Uber. All those things were important to us and those were the people that we started to partner with and let people work for and I think it’s done just that.”

On promotions policing the talent’s terms “From what my understanding of what I hear the system has changed a lot and there’s a lot more of them sort of policing it and the talent being able to police cause they’re not allowed to go work for the ones that can’t do it and those ones eventually don’t last and the others do last and for all the right reasons and the others aren’t.”
