Triple H addresses criticism of WWE booking
ESPN.com is featuring an interview with WWE COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque talking about his work with NXT and his thoughts on criticism of current WWE booking.
“When somebody goes, ‘Well, you just can’t get people over with 50/50 booking,’ [I’ll always say] ‘Oh, I’m sorry, how’s your territory coming? Because this one seems to be doing pretty good over here.’ We just had the largest WrestleMania in history. People talk a lot of smack about ratings and things, but they don’t understand all of the dynamics of everything we do. They don’t. They sit on the internet and they read one thing and they give their point of view. Do I keep track of the exact wins and losses of talent? No. To me, all of this stuff is a feel. All of it is a feel. People don’t understand it when Vince [McMahon] will say it’s not about wins and losses or those things. Do they matter? Sure. Are they the be all, end all? Absolutely not.”
