Triple H shoots down Mickie James Rumor
During a NXT Takeover media conference call, Triple H shot down reports that WWE originally wanted Trish Stratus to face NXT Women’s Champion Asuka at the upcoming NXT Takeover Toronto event next week, but went with Mickie James because Stratus is pregnant again.
“I’ve seen the rumors out there about other people being attempted to be grabbed for [Mickie’s spot],” Triple H said. He added that for next week’s Takeover, he wanted more time for the other women in NXT to grow as performers, so he went with Mickie James, noting that she was very skilled and could handle it.
“I felt like [Mickie] and Asuka would tear it up,” Triple H added. “I want to re-inforce that Mickie was not the consolation prize for us in anyway. She is the person that we went at First.”
