WWECLASSICS.COM: What are your thoughts on Bruno’s previous reluctance to be inducted?

TRIPLE H: Bruno has had his gripes about the company in the past and they were completely justified. But we’ve changed, we’ve grown and we’ve evolved as a company. We’ve evolved as a business. And I felt like if Bruno knew those things and was comfortable with those things, I felt like he would want to be involved. [Wrestling] is in your blood. It’s who you are. And it was important for me for a lot of reasons to have Bruno back with WWE.

    Almost makes up for the Sin Cara blunder he made some time back.

    The blood, partial nudity, the violence, the crazy storylines (Katie Vick..) is what made wwe ENTERTAINING.

      I know I’m in the minority. Those things certainly titillate. However, it’s *the work* that keeps me coming back. I’m not into people giving birth to heads or workers cursing every five seconds, incest angles, or soap opera drama.

        I agree with you I’m all so in the minority..I enjoy the in ring work more then all that stuff you mentioned.

      That’s the thing though their are fans of pro wrestling than their are fans of sports entertainment. The attitude era was a combo of both. Great work in the ring as performers and wrestlers and great mic work and acting as superstars of sports entertainment. We’re just coming full circle here folks.

    Triple H will make a great CEO one day. His passion is awesome.

    I watched an interview Trip gave some time back (I think after adapting the short hair cut) about the future plans of the company and all. He has blended in well into the “business” prospect of WWE. I’m sure he’ll turn out to be a worthy successor to VKM…

      I still would have loved to see Shane McMahon take over for his father, as Vince did with his father but I will say that Trips has proved he will do a great job as a successor to Vince.

    “But we’ve changed, we’ve grown and we’ve evolved as a company. We’ve evolved as a business”…For the worse , Into stagnation , from Great , Entertaining Pro Wrestling to Lame-ass , Child-Catering PG Programming that sucks donkey balls !!! What a crock of shit , Triple H…Who is WWE trying to kid ?!? Anyways , glad to see Bruno being inducted into the HOF !!! But in all honesty , PW NEEDS stroylines and angles that will keep the fans watching , as the days of just wrestling are pretty much history !!!
