Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who is currently the WWE Chief Content Officer, took a trip down memory lane speaking about his childhood in the post-Survivor Series press conference.
The late, great Dusty Rhodes introduced the WarGames Match in WCW back in 1987, but WWE didn’t use the bout until 2017 when Triple H used it in NXT when he was running the black and gold, scheduling it for that year’s NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
Here in 2022, Triple H showed respect to both Rhodes and his legacy by bringing the WarGames bout to Survivor Series.
After the Premium Live Event, Levesque spoke with the media during the post-show press conference, where the 14-time WWE Champion said that Survivor Series: WarGames was about paying homage.
“Today meant a lot. I think for all of us. In the new transition time, you are trying to blaze a new trail. But at the same time, remember everything historically that came in front of you and paid homage to that, to honor that, to pay respect to that. Every bit of respect that is due. I grew up watching Survivor Series. I grew up watching War Games. Putting them together tonight and having that delivered in such a big way meant a lot to me.”
