Triple H spoke about rumors of WWE originally wanted Trish Stratus to face Asuka for the WWE NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: Toronto but picked Mickie James due to Stratus being pregnancy.
"I've seen the rumors out there about other people being attempted to be grabbed for [Mickie's spot]," Triple H said on a media conference call
Hunter wanted to make sure and reinforce that Mickie is not a consolation prize for WWE in anyway. She is the person they wanted to face Asuka.
WWE NXT TakeOver: Toronto will take place on Saturday, November 19, 2016 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
