WWE hosted a NXT Takeover: Phoenix media call today with Triple H ahead of the event this Saturday.

A number of topics were discussed, including the new wrestling startup All Elite Wrestling.

Triple H is one not to shy away from the media, even if it’s about competition. He was asked by Jason Powell at ProWrestling.net about All Elite Wrestling, and it possibly being competition for the WWE.

Triple H stated that AEW is something they will keep an eye on, as the WWE is a content provider that does compete against everyone.

Jason Powell asked “It’s no secret, a new player in the game with AEW, does that change anything with you guys, even if it’s from a contractual standpoint, feeling the need to pay more to get the top tier talent, or just in anyway for you guys”

Triple H responded “It’s clearly something that we will keep an eye, and clearly something that they are out there doing their business, but what we will do whats right for our business, what’s right for WWE, what we feel is right for the fans, the WWE Universe, our fanbase, everybody in general, and what’s right for us”

Triple H followed up with “They’re all business decisions, and we will continue to monitor everything, and we say it all the time, and it’s the truth, and it’s not just a competitor like that, we compete against everything, and I know you’ve heard it said, in the business world today, when you’re a content provider, you compete against everything including sleep, including the internet, so you want to keep your eye on everything, and try to be as relevant as possible at all times, in every front, we continue to monitor that, like we monitor everything, and continue to do what’s best for WWE”.

It’s no secret that the WWE is keeping their eye on all competition, and with the company attempting to acquire more talent, an retain current stars to longer deals, All Elite Wrestling is something that is on their radar.

Katsuyori Shibata Looking To Get Medically Cleared To Return To The Ring

Katsuyori Shibata is looking to get cleared to step into a ring once again.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Shibata is looking to get medically cleared following his recent appearance on the final night of the G1 Climax tournament.

“Katsuyori Shibata, he hasn’t been cleared, but he will be attempting to get cleared,” Meltzer stated. “He trains with his students, but the issue in question is whether it can ever be healthy for him to take head shots, and if he were to return as Katsuyori Shibata, can they work around that issue within the New Japan style.”

In 2017, Shibata collapsed backstage after a match with Kazuchika Okada at Sakura Genesis. The injury was caused by Shibata’s use of a headbutt, which he had been doing regularly since the prior year. Following his collapse, he was rushed to hopsital, where he was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, which required emergency surgery. This caused Shibata to experience paralysis on one half of his body, and many to believe he would never wrestle again.

Following his recovery, Shibata was appointed head coach of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s dojo in Los Angeles, CA.

Shibata made a surprise appearance at the finals of the G1 Climax tournament earlier this month. Although he was not medically cleared to compete, he was involved in an angle with The Bullet Club, where he was beatdown.
