Paul “Triple H” Levesque discussed the creative changes that have taken place at WWE leading up to Wrestlemania 40 on Logan Paul’s podcast.

“We had plans very early. So if you would have asked me in October, I could have told you probably 90% of what I thought WrestleMania was going to be in my mind with some pretty good accuracy, but then you end up where you lose guys. CM Punk goes away and all this other stuff. It changes your dynamic, and then all of a sudden, there was talk about maybe Rock might try to do something this year. We’re not really sure. I’ve heard that a lot. Like, even me personally, he and I shot an angle before and then his schedule changed and he just couldn’t. We were locked in, WrestleMania, here’s what we’re doing and here’s where we’re going. Then his schedule changed and he just couldn’t make it happen. I get it, but as that becomes a reality, you have to shift thinking. Then there’s a lot of different thoughts and what the camps are. Then we’re gonna do this. We think that’ll be good or like some people thought, Rock coming in and challenging Roman and Cody moving over would be a great thing and other people thought it’s not going to work and be really tough.”

“At a certain point in time, you just have to pick it. You can make the argument that Cody-Roman in the story where we were, was massive. Then you can also make an argument that the biggest star in the world comes into your product to face the biggest guy that you have in the product in Roman Reigns like, that’s huge. This is like a win-win, right? So we do it and some people are like, this is gonna be the reaction and some people are like, this is going to be the reaction and be the exact opposite. The beauty of our businesses is they tell us. There’s 10, 20, 30,000 people in an arena every night going, this is what I like, this what I don’t like and you have to filter all the other crap out because there’s a lot of noise in there and all that and get to the heart of it. Once you get to the heart of it, they’re sort of telling you where to go.”
