Triple H Asked Which Other Fighters He’d Like To See In WWE, Talks Floyd Mayweather & More

Triple H recently was interviewed by the press regarding the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. During the talk he was asked by the press pack what other fighters and boxers he would like to see crossover and join WWE following the recent signings of Cain Velasquez and Tyson Fury. Below are the highlights:

On which other fighters he’d like to see in WWE:

 “It’s tough for me to answer that. Only in the fact that, the ones that have the passion for it. When this works, it’s when they have the passion. When it doesn’t, it’s when they’re just here for the moment, or the paycheck. If the thought for him [Fury] was just, ‘Eh, go there, get some people to tune in for my fight,’ you know, he’s a fan. He grew up a fan when he was a kid. I watched him at the event, even this week, we went down to the Performance Center for a little bit. The gleam of his eye getting in the ring, and stepping through those ropes and doing things for the first time, he was like a little kid. I saw that gleam in Ronda’s eye when we were at WrestleMania. She had mentioned to me many times, excitedly, about being a WWE superstar when I was around her. And I would say, ‘Yeah, yeah, a lot of people say that.’ Then I saw her get the bug, and I was like, ‘She’s gonna do this and be great at it.'”

On Floyd Mayweather’s past WWE appearances:

“I saw Floyd do it. I saw Floyd get the buzz, and he was a fan growing up and, you know, made his persona around what we do, sort of. But I watched him get the bug and then want to do something. Not just coming here and just, ‘Eh, I’ll go in there, do a little something.’ Come in here and do something epic. He wanted to come in here like Ronda, like Tyson Fury, I think like Cain. Come in here and do something that the whole world remembers. Do something that, when they leave Crown Jewel, they’re like, ‘Man, that Tyson Fury thing was good. I wasn’t expecting that, but oh my god, that was good.’ Or ‘Oh my god, Cain Velasquez, holy cow. Blew my mind, I didn’t know he could do that.’ That’s what they’re looking [to do]. When they’re like that, then as a fan that athleticism and that entertainment wins you over every time. That’s how it works.’"
