“I thought we had a great relationship in the beginning and in the middle. It wasn’t bad in the end either, I just thought it was time to go. Vince is very severe, it is his show and we understand it. I don’t think I expected anything less than perfection. He relied on me a lot to help talent try to get the best combination and camera angles and teach the guys a bit about the business. There, you are a producer / agent. “
He also spoke about his role as a producer:
“I remember at the Hammerstein Ballroom when Vince said, ‘From now on, there will be no more agents. I don’t know what the agents do. Now you are a producer because you help to produce the matches. From this day on, you are a producer. ‘ I couldn’t help it, I raised my hand and said, ‘Do producers make more money than agents? ‘He says,’ No, more or less the same. he wants to do the best he can, and again, it’s his show. If he wants to yell at you and yell at you, it’s his business. It is not the easiest environment to work with. There are a lot of guys who could have been really good producers and they looked at me and said, ‘There’s no way I would take that job. I couldn’t do what you do.’ very tiring and stressful because there are expectations to be successful every night and make sure things are different. “

Triple H leaks WWE firing after ‘burying’ a diva
Triple H has fired a WWE employee for sending a garbage bag to Mick James after his shot.
Triple H said: “Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talents received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE. “
Triple H praised Damian Priest on ESPN’s Cheap Heat podcast, “I looked at Damian Priest, I’ve seen him for years and I was like ‘man, this guy is, he’s talented. Everything I know and hear about him, he’s positive in all levels. Then he came to work with us, I remember, at a slightly older age, right, but I was like ‘Man, this kid can fix everything.’
But when I met him and started working with him, I thought, ‘Man, he’s like a sponge,’ no one just ever helped him get where he needed to be. Once the lightbulb started beeping for him, I thought, “This is a game changer for him.” He’s a little older, but he’s in good shape. He finally has the opportunity to put all those pieces together because he was not afraid of change or challenge. “
