Triple H took part in an interview with Alex McCarthy of talksport.com where he talked about the infamous Undertaker vs. Goldberg match that led to a discussion about negative fans on social media about the WWE product.
“The Game” started out by noting that people can say what they want to say about Saudi Arabia or the match but he takes his hat off to them as it was a bad situation.
He brought up wrestling in the bad conditions as it was about 105 degrees and 100 percent humidity at ringside. He added that there were moments in his match that he wanted to change gears but couldn’t.
“It’s humanly impossible in this moment. It was like wrestling in a sauna, it really was. And there was those moments like when you step out of a sauna and you’re like ‘jeez, I’m lightheaded I might pass out’ – it was so ridiculously hot. And you put pressure on yourself and everything on top of that, so it’s a lot.”
He added that no one cuts anyone slack on anything in wrestling. This brought up the negativity on social media.
He talked about how he has to remind himself with social media that it’s people reacting with passion and the negativity is because they’re passionate. He thinks fans love it so much and that they will say the worst thing in the world on Twitter.
“But yet if they saw Goldberg or ‘Taker they would be like in awe and speechless. It’s just the craziest thing.”
He thinks it’s weird that people will say negative things online yet would be amazed to see them in real life and not say hateful things.
