Does Triple H Watch AEW?

2 Min Read

When AEW Dynamite first launched on TNT the show went head to head with NXT on Wednesday nights for some time. The head to head competition was dubbed the Wednesday Night Wars and some fans wondered just how closely WWE was watching AEW.

The wrestling landscape has changed quite a bit since AEW launched, and a number of former NXT stars have gone on to join the promotion. Triple H recently discussed AEW during an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, and he indicated that he doesn’t watch AEW on a regular basis.

“It’s funny, I’ve heard Nick [Khan] say that. And I’ve heard people say to me it’s a cop-out answer. It’s not a cop-out answer, everything is competition to us, we [WWE] pay attention to everything, you have to. Do we pay attention to AEW? Do I watch it on a week-to-week basis? No. Am I aware of what’s happening there? To a degree.

I’m not following everything they do. There’s some times I’ll see that somebody would say, ‘Well it’s very similar to what they [AEW] are doing.’ No idea. Yeah, you know, at the end of the day, you have to focus on what you’re doing. You have to focus on your product. Because no matter what anybody else is doing, if people want to watch that product, [there’s] nothing I can do about it. There’s nothing that’s going to prevent me from doing that, right? Focus on my product, make my product the best product it can possibly be.”
