Cole added, “He knew what my goals were and the things that I wanted to accomplish. I think a big reason I loved NXT so much was, again, we had that freedom and that ability to wrestle super cool, longer matches, and get to show ourselves off artistically in that sense. NXT was kind of built on that mentality.”

Who knew a ‘Cerebral Assassin’ like Triple H was a softie behind the curtain? Whenever a superstar leaves WWE, there is always speculation whether their relationship with the company ended on good terms. Therefore, it is good to see former WWE Superstars praise their former bosses.
