As mentioned by WrestlingInc, Triple H was interviewed by Sky Sports where he spoke among a number of topics including the Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar rivalry on the ‘Raw’ brand and who he believes is the future of WWE.
Triple H spoke about the upcoming match between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe at ‘Great Balls of Fire.’ He explains that Lesnar is a once in a time athlete and he couldn’t describe how fast, strong and intense Lesnar is if he tried. He says Samoa Joe is on another level as well. The match will be very physical. Triple H, if anyone, understands just how brutal Lesnar can be. In the video at the top of the article, you can watch Triple H face Brock Lesnar in a Steel Cage. It is insane.
“Brock Lesnar is one of those once in a lifetime athletes. A guy that is 300 pounds but when he moves – it’s like being in the water with a shark. There’s a movement and then he’s on you. It’s incredible how fast, agile, how quick of an athlete Brock Lesnar is. It’s almost indescribable until you’re in there with him, how good he is. How fast, strong, and intense he is. It’s why he has been a success and everything he has ever done. It’s why he was UFC champion, it’s why he’s been a multiple time WWE Champion, but then again – Samoa Joe is a different level of athlete as well. I think it’s going to be an interesting contest and I think, if nothing else, you’re going to see two bulls go at it. It will be very physical, to say the least – it always is with Brock Lesnar.”
Triple H also spoke about who he felt the future of WWE is. He says that Seth Rollins is the man he mentions, explaining that Rollins is extremely talented. Triple H says it has been very gratifying to see Rollins’ progression over the years.
“This is me with the suit off in a little bit of a different environment, with my wife standing behind me. That’s the thing for me now, at this point in my career, that moment to stand in that ring again with my wife standing behind me in front of a record-breaking crowd in Orlando at WrestleMania was just – they’re all career highlights, they’re bonuses for me and they’re a lot of fun. To stand in the ring with a guy as talented as Seth Rollins is, who’s kind of the current and the future of WWE in many ways, it’s hard to describe how that feels. For me knowing that I was there as he was coming into the WWE, seeing his development in the Shield, being there for a lot of it and seeing him come all the way to where he is now, it’s very gratifying in a lot of ways.”
