Triple H Takes Shot At All Elite Wrestling During HOF Ceremony

Triple H Takes Shot At All Elite Wrestling During HOF Ceremony
During D-Generation X’s induction speech at the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame, Triple H took some not so subtle shots at All Elite Wrestling.

At the start of their speech, Triple H cracked jokes about how since he was now an executive, he was unable to make some of the jokes that he once could as a member of DX.

From there, the jabs at AEW were made, with Triple H saying that he isn’t sure what his job title means, but that putting the words “executive” and “vice president” in front of something just makes it sound better. “I don’t know what any of that means but it sounds long and it sounds important. And apparently, if you put ‘Executive Vice President’ in front of anyone’s name, they feel important.” he said.

Afterward, he continued to take jabs at AEW, specifically regarding Billy Gunn. After a prolonged bit about not being able to thank Vince McMahon in their Hall of Fame speech or else they’d be fired, Gunn said that McMahon couldn’t fire him. To that, Triple H noted, “He will buy that pissant company just to fire you again.”

Everyone laughed at that reference and another line from WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. When joking about always counting on Gunn to under-deliver, Michaels said, "You can always count on 'ol Billy Gunn to over-promise and under-deliver. We thank you for being out here and being 'All In'."

Of course, this got quite the rise out of the crowd during the induction, and goes right along with the general attitude of D-Generation X.
