WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H has discussed the use of blood in WWE and says wrestling is dangerous enough without making it more so intentionally.
Speaking to The Ringer, Triple H gave his thoughts on the use of blood in WWE and why he thinks it’s no longer necessary, noting that the world has evolved:
“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.”
The Game’s comments came as he announced that this year for the first time ever Survivor Series will host two WarGames matches featuring male and female WWE Superstars.
Triple H also noted that Survivor Series will move away from the Raw vs. SmackDown matches that have plagued it for the past several years with Triple H adding that the event will be “much more story-line driven.”
