Ahead of NXT TakeOver Stand & Deliver and WrestleMania 37, Triple H spoke on a media call where he once again outlined that Vince McMahon is “adament” that WWE is open for business.

Answering a question from Inside The Ropes’ Gary Cassidy, Triple H said that WWE were open for business when it comes to working with other wrestling organisations.

His statement comes after the news that Chris Jericho will be appearing on the WWE Network, when he is the next guest on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions.

Reflecting on the news, The Game, said that while he wasn’t aware of the news until yesterday, (April 2nd) he wasn’t shocked by the deal.

“First of all, I hadn’t heard of the Jericho thing today, but it’s not shocking to me in any way, shape or form. People made comments about people after they leave and they received a nice call from Vince or whoever that is. Yeah, yeah, it’s not shocking to me at all. The perception and the creation of what people believe in their heads when they have zero knowledge of it. You know, personally is amazing sometimes, the fantasy world that is created. Not shocking to me in any way.”

NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver comes your way beginning with Night 1 on Wednesday, April 7 on USA Network in the US and BT Sport in the UK, and streaming exclusively on Peacock in the US and on WWE Network everywhere else. The must-see event continues with Night 2 on Thursday, April 8 at 8/7 C streaming on Peacock and WWE Network.
