On the latest edition of his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg spoke about the way Triple H and Vince McMahon see wrestlers, which includes his thoughts on former triple-crown NXT champion, Johnny Gargano. Highlights from the episode can be found below.
The type of wrestler that Vince McMahon likes compared to the type of wrestler Triple H likes:
“Vince, and everybody kind of knows, had an idea of what his wrestler looked like and it was Hulk Hogan, it was The Rock, it was Stone Cold. It was big, brawny, attractive, or hideous, whatever it is, but a bigger guy. Hunter is more of a wrestlers’ guy, a wrestling guy. He likes people that can wrestle really well. Look, Johnny Gargano would never be on Vince’s show, but there’s a good chance he’s on Hunter’s show, because he’s really good at wrestling.”
How Vince and Triple H think similarly and different at the same time:
“I don’t think [Vince McMahon and Triple H] see things that differently, I just think they see things — one was a promoter and then became the owner of a company and then one was just a top guy Talent who learned from the school of hard knocks by being a top guy and working under Vince as to how to make business decisions and some life decisions, too, I would imagine. so, I think they both have very similar leadership strategies and we’ll get into that a little later but as far as talent, look, Vince likes a bigger guy and Hunter likes a better wrestler.”
