CBS Sports has a new article online featuring quotes from Triple H. Below are the highlights:
His thoughts on mixed crowd reactions to Roman Reigns:
"You know, the hardest thing in this business to do now is, as a character, to either make everyone love you or everyone hate you," Levesque said with a laugh. "The world is a divided place in politics, in music and everything. Choices now, and people's opinions, are front and center more than ever. The Internet makes that readily available to everybody. They know all of the machinations of everything and the behind-the-scenes of everything, you know.
"It used to be that the good guy was the guy that didn't cheat, you know what I mean? It was just very simple. The world has changed. I think [Reigns has] done a phenomenal job. He's, you know, from a behind-the-scenes standpoint, a great human being. I'm really happy for his success, as I am for all of them.”
What Hunter always used to say to John Cena:
"The days of everybody loves the white knight and everybody hates the dark knight are gone," Levesque said. "You've seen it for, what, the last 10 years with John Cena. I used to say to John all the time, 'You're the Red Sox and the Yankees in the same game. Half the place hates you, half the place loves you, but it's full, so who cares?’”

Richard Reacts: What Triple H is saying is 100% correct. It doesn’t matter if fans boo or cheer as long as they’re paying money to watch. I’m not defending WWE in picking someone like Roman Reigns and forcing him as a babyface, I’m just saying apathy is the loudest reaction.
