Top WWE Star Credits Triple H For How He Makes Talent Feel

Triple H WWE

A former WWE Champion believes that Triple H is doing a tremendous job as the leader of the company.

AJ Styles is a former two-time WWE Champion who won his first title in the first year he was with the company in 2016. Styles had a second title reign at the end of 2017 as well. Those titles reigns happened while Vince McMahon was still the WWE Chairman running the show.

In the nearly two years since Paul “Triple H” Levesque took over as WWE’s Chief Content Officer in charge of running the company from a creative standpoint, Styles hasn’t had as much singles success, but he still has a lot of nice things to say about his boss.

During an interview with the Battleground Podcast, Styles spoke about WWE’s global reach as a company while referencing the $5 billion deal that WWE signed with Netflix to broadcast Raw in 2025 as well as international broadcasting rights.

“I wish more guys who I think would do well in WWE who may have been afraid as far as past things that have happened with Vince being there, I wish that they would understand that WWE is in this for the long run. We’re talking about 10 years on Netflix, possibly 20 years. That’s a long time. We’re not going anywhere.”

“The fact that you could come here and you can have a job as long as you can produce, for as long as you want, and depending on where you’re from you could reach out to other countries. I wish more guys would understand this. We are not just in the United States of America. We’re not just in England. We are global. We’re even bigger now than we’ve ever been. Places that we weren’t able to go, now we’re in. I just wish they could see that and know that this isn’t the same WWE that Vince was in charge of.”

AJ Styles Credits Triple H for Looking Out For Talent

When it comes to his WWE boss, Styles credits Triple H for always looking out for the talent and Styles believes that Triple H makes everybody feel important.

“I really believe that Triple H looks at our talent and goes, ‘Let’s get them better or let’s find ways to bring out the best in them rather than show them the worst.’ A lot of those guys and girls, when they get released from WWE, it crushes them. I never understood why we want to do something like that rather than just like, hey, let’s send them back to NXT. They just need a little bit more work or something like that, but being released, it’ll crush you.”

“I don’t want to see people‚Äôs lives ruined because of a job. At the end of the day, it’s just a job, but still, it’s something they’ve worked for their whole life and then when you’re told you’re not good enough, man, it sucks. It’s not the way it is these days. Now with Triple H in charge, I think he’s doing a great job of making everyone feel important.”

As for his immediate WWE future, it was announced on Smackdown in Memphis that Styles will face his rival LA Knight at WrestleMania 40. After Knight challenged Styles to a match at WrestleMania, Styles hit Knight with a chair to the back, and then Styles accepted the match.
