He credits Stephenie and Triple H for calling spots for him in that match. They recall the match subsequently, noting that the botch was towards the very start of the match.

Paul adds that the table probably breaks prematurely through the pedigree, knocking out Kurt for a while. Kurt also highlights how the business has changed for the better now with medical protocols. He added, “If they do get concussed, they aren’t allowed to wrestle. Definitely not going out for a match.” Paul claimed Kurt was probably knocked out immediately and Triple H had to communicate with him discreetly.
