Triple H Talks About The Barbed Wire At NXT Takeover
Posted By: Damon Delmont on Aug 11, 2019
Last night at NXT Takeover Toronto, Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano went to war in a 2 out of 3 falls match that ended within a steel cage full of classic professional wrestling weaponry. From steel chairs and tables to a fire extinguisher and kendo sticks, we saw the use of very "common" objects in their match.
One spot, in particular, gained the attention of Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com. Towards the end of the match, Gargano climbed to the top of the cage to cut and retrieve a small amount of barbed wire.
During a post-show conference call with Triple H, Johnson references Vince McMahon's "blood and guts" comments about AEW. Triple H responded that there was no blood. Johnson countered with bringing up Cole's back at the end of the match.
Here are Triple H's comments immediately following Johnson's statements:
“Honest to god you’re gonna call me out on that? I mean he gets scraped on the table. No — honest to god, you’re digging deep for this one. I gotta tell you guys there was nothing in that cage except for the barbed wire at the top which didn’t get used… did not get used.”
“There was nothing in that cage that you haven’t been seeing on TV in WWE consistently. So, to say this is some kind — man, you guys gotta get off your conspiracy theory stuff. You’re digging hard, but you’re making yourself look stupid.”
“I mean in general, you’re digging hard for something that ain’t there […] What did [Vince] say? He said ‘blood and guts’… did you see blood? Intentional blood? Right, you just answered the question so what you’re digging for isn’t there. Like, that’s the ridiculous thing in this. There was nothing there that you have not seen. Barbed wire as a deterrent for leaving the cage did not get used. Nobody intentionally bled, there was no blood anywhere… there were chairs, there were Kendo sticks. There were pliers, not needle-nosed so those were different, but what else was different? What was the gore and the guts that we went to that is making you say that this was a different turn?”
