Triple H broken down what he would change about boxing and MMA events, suggesting what they could learn from WWE.
For decades WWE have prided themselves on presenting the biggest entertainment spectacle possible. No matter the action in the ring, the company have always aimed to present it bigger and better than anyone else.
Speaking at a WWE Crown Jewel media scrum, via Matt Kempke, Triple H was asked about what MMA and boxing could learn from WWE. The current Head of Creative explained that while all three sports are vastly different, if he was in change of MMA and boxing he would put more “show” in the presentation to create a better experience for those in attendance.
“That’s not up to me to decide, but if I was to do it, put more show into it. There’s times when I go — I’m a big fan of boxing and MMA, and there’s times when I go to events, and it’s amazing to watch on television, but when you sit in the arena, then it’s maybe not the event that you wish it to be from start to finish, right. Those are the things that I would do differently, but that doesn’t mean I’m right.
That’s how I would choose our product and how they choose their product is, you know, a decision for them. But for me, making it a bit more of a spectacle, making it a bit more of an event, that entertains you from start to finish — because I’ll tell you right now, everything is entertainment, no matter what. Doesn’t matter if it’s the news, doesn’t matter if it’s movies, television, doesn’t matter what sport, it’s all entertainment,”
At a WWE press conference in Las Vegas it was announced that Roman Reigns will be taking on Logan Paul at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. The conference took place just hours before Triple H attended the Super-Middleweight boxing clash between Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin.
