TRIPLE H SAYS IT'S NOT TIME TO PLAY THE BLADE, TALKS WARGAMES AND MORE

In the interview with the Ringer announcing Wargames for the Survivor Series on 11/26 in Boston, Triple H commented on whether the debut of Wargames on the main roster will also see the return of blood, as it was a staple on the earlier Wargames matches. 

"The world has changed. The world has evolved. I don’t think it’s necessary. If we have talent that gets [cut open], usually you’ll see them roll out and they’ll get looked at to make sure that there’s nothing dangerous. I’m just of the opinion right now, given the state of the world and the pandemic, and at the end of the day, what we do is dangerous enough without intentionally making it more dangerous. Yes, we did [feature bleeding] for a long period of time, but we’ve changed that practice. And it’s irresponsible to go back."

He also commented on taking into consideration the amount of injuries that could happen when planning this type of match. 

"Look, when you have guys and women performing at the highest of levels, I feel like I spend more time talking them out of stuff than I do [talking them into something]. I’ve done this for years, and as you’re sitting back there behind that TV monitor, watching this go down, you’re holding your breath the whole show. I feel like there’s always a risk-to-reward ratio. Is it so big that people are gonna walk away from this with that vision implanted in their mind and they’ll never forget it? Because if you are risking your health and your longevity in your profession, over that spot, over that moment, it needs to be worth it. So I’ve talked people out of doing things because sometimes I’m like, ‘Look, be honest; it’s just a spot.'"

He also commented on the challenges and difficulty of shooting a Wargames type match. 

"Yeah, it can be more difficult to shoot and it can be a bit more of a challenge, but I think we’ve found over the years ways to do it and make it work. It’s not difficult. It’s just different. It makes everybody think outside the box. When you do this 52 weeks a year, multiple times a week, there’s a pattern to what you do and it becomes easy because it’s a rhythm. And then you do this one show a year where, no, there’s two rings and two hard cameras. And everything is different. People have to think differently. And that sometimes is a little bit uncomfortable, but I like the challenge of that."

He also talked about changes in the Wargames cage and format when it debuted in NXT a few years ago. 

"When we first started redoing them, people were upset that we didn’t have a top on the cage. And I was like, ‘Well, we already have one with the top on [Hell in a Cell].’ And the other thing is, it used to drive me nuts when I was a kid that the cage was too short. You’d see like what happened with Brian Pillman, where he got put up for a powerbomb and it wasn’t enough space.[Taking the top off the cage] allows you to do so much more stuff. Look, in the old generation, no one was about to jump off the top of that cage. The times have changed, the business has evolved, and the cage that WarGames is held in needed to evolve, too."
