Triple H joined Michael Cole in his weekly kayfabe sit-down interview series.
In it, Hunter compared Roman Reigns' injury to that of Daniel Bryan and said guys should choose who they run up against a little more carefully.
Cole asked if Hunter had suggested that Dean Ambrose was an A+ player. Triple H said there's no defending mental stability in that case. Dean Ambrose is an interesting guy and sometimes you've got to know when to fight and when not to fight. Hunter agreed with Ambrose that it was "cool" when he got his head drove through cinderblocks and hit by a car. He said durability seems to be an issue, like with Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns.
Triple H announced a Battle Royal to determine the No. 1 contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship for this week's Smackdown and later that night, the winner will face Dolph Ziggler for the title.
