Triple H appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show earlier today to talk about WrestleMania. Among several questions asked, Helwani tried to find out if there were any surprises in store for fans who log in on Saturday and Sunday. Triple H didn’t say much, but he said fans might be shocked to see what Rob Gronkowski was doing on the show. He also noted that parts of the show will be live with matches that have already been recorded.
Triple H said, “So you know that Gronkowski is hosting. People said, “What are your plans for Gronk? “I said we don’t have any plans for Gronk, Gronk has plans for us … I think he’s going to do some really cool things that people will be shocked that he actually does. I think the event itself will be spectacular when it is obviously not in a stadium of 70 to 80,000 people. “
Triple H hasn’t given too many details on how WrestleMania looks, but it looks like production will be more elaborate than what we’ve seen in recent weeks on Raw and Friday Night SmackDown.
“It looks spectacular,” continued Triple H. “The look and feel will be phenomenal. I think the talent has really intensified to bring energy and excitement knowing how important it is. And there are a lot of things going on, live and recorded, taking place from other places. “
“Sometimes I think these moments and moments are things that allow you to think outside the box and do things that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to do. If WrestleMania was just WrestleMania in a stadium, we would approach it as we always do. We approach it differently. From day one, when we thought we were going to do this, we thought about how can we make it different and unique and how can we take advantage of the situation we find ourselves in. I think we did it. I think there will be things out there that could change the way we do business in the future even after that. “
