Triple H has been leading NXT to the right path so far

Triple H was live on Facebook along with Cathy Kelly after the historic night of NXT Takeover: Toronto, which had several memorable moments like the “Glorious” win for Bobby Roode, the crowning of new NXT Tag Team Champions, the return of Mickie James and a shocking defeat for Shinsuke Nakamura.

Here are some of the points that he spoke about:

He believes that Bobby Roode exuded confidence from the word go and always had the advantage over Tye Dillinger. According to him, Roode will not turn back after this and will have his eyes set on the NXT Championship.

Although Tye Dillinger earned respect for his match, Triple H believes that he is lost at this moment and will be looking forward to what’s next.

Cathy brought up the crowning of Authors Of Pain as the winners of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and Triple H commented on it by saying that the tournament was very close to his heart and also asserted the dominance displayed by the Authors Of Pain, comparing them to The Road Warriors.

Triple H was all praise for the NXT Tag Team Title match and particularly emphasised on The Revival by calling them “a technically sound team”. He also believes that the DIY are not that far behind and insisted that they had proved a point with the victory.

He also said that he would be looking forward to the eventual rematch. He also mentioned that he had found the name “DIY” pretty silly but that it made sense to him after their win.


Triple H talked about Asuka who he believes is one of the most dominant champions in recent times and has managed to wipe out her entire division single-handedly. Regarding the future of Mickie James, Triple H said that her future was in her own hands.

Finally, it was time for the main event and Triple H believed that it was one of the most physical bouts that he had ever witnessed and praised Joe over his dominance and for becoming the first ever two-time NXT Champion.

Triple H also talked about the “shock” on the people’s faces as Joe got the victory and stated that the people believed that this was Nakamura’s era. He also said that this rivalry is far from over and believes that the rematch will be "phenomenal".
