BT Sports’ Ariel Helwani interviewed WWE’s Head of Creative Triple H to discuss various topics ahead of tomorrow night’s Clash at the Castle.
We’ll have more later, but one of the things discussed was that Brock Lesnar was upset when he learned that Vince McMahon was retiring from WWE. The story, originally reported by Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer, was corroborated by Triple H.
He said, ‘There’s a grain of truth in it, yes. You have to understand Brock’s relationship with Vince.”
He continued: “Vince is the devil he knows. Brock is not a trusting person by nature, he doesn’t like people. He’s not a trusting person. I think that’s when you hear ‘Vince is out’. And what goes happening now? I’m out of here.”

Hunter said it was only for a moment and then there were conversations. He said: “I have a great relationship with Brock. Have we had any problems over the years? Yes, because at one point he was a talent, I was a talent. Talent all get along to some degree and there’s also a very real rivalry between all of them.”
He added: “He wants something, he calls Vince directly. If he wants to make a deal, he calls Vince directly. There was a time when he first came back dealing with me directly – because he and Vince couldn’t get along with things from the past Over time he rekindles his relationship with Vince and now everything is going through Vince It’s just a different time now and now that he’s had a moment to digest it he digested it a bit and came back to the building, we did business that night. We had long conversations about where we were going, he liked what he heard, liked how he had been treated, so it’s all good.”
