Triple H Thinks WWE Has Evolved Past Using Blood

Triple H on WWE Raw

WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H has explained why he doesn’t think blood is needed in WWE matches, saying it would be “irresponsible”.

In a new interview with The Ringer, Triple H detailed his feelings on the use of blood in WWE matches. The Game feels that it’s not necessary now and explained that, while he accepts that wrestlers deliberately bleeding was allowed in matches for a long time, he thinks it would be “irresponsible” to go back to the practice.

“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.”

During the same interview, Triple H announced that Survivor Series will host two WarGames matches for the first time. These will feature male and female WWE Superstars. He had previously introduced the concept to WWE while in charge of NXT, making the match the focus of an annual TakeOver event of the same name.

WWE’s Chief Content Officer also revealed that Survivor Series will no longer host the Raw vs. SmackDown matches that have become a feature of the last few years, saying that the event will be “much more storyline driven.”
