Loudwire Names Triple H Metal Ambassador of the Decade
Louidwire has announced WWE COO Triple H has been named as the Metal Ambassador Of The Decade for his use of metal themes in his WrestleMania entrances and NXT events.
Check out the announcement below, along with some comments from Triple H:
RAW and Smackdown are pop music. They’re the most popular, the most commonplace, the casual fan is gonna come listen to it and see it. I knew that to be the alternative, we needed to be something different. To create that aggression and that intensity, you need to create something that has that same vibe, and that’s where the music came in.
Immediately, the music connection, to me, was to go down the harder and heavier road. We had the idea of taking young, up-and-coming bands — just like up-and-coming wrestlers — and giving them this platform that didn’t necessarily exist. They weren’t getting on the Tonight Show or these other platforms … I feel like there’s this massive resurgence of rock and metal and whatever you want to call it. Obviously, [Motorhead’s] Lem [Kilmister] was a big fan, so it’s just rock ’n’ roll, right? But I love it.
