It's no secret that Tool guitarist Adam Jones is a big fan of WWE. He famously performed the Star Spangled Banner on guitar at SummerSlam a few years ago, and even proposed to his now-wife at a Royal Rumble event shortly after. But it turns out, the relationship between Jones and WWE goes much deeper.
Jones attended a taping of the highly popular NXT series in Orlando yesterday, and posted some kind words about the current WWE world champion, and COO of the company, Paul "Triple H" Levesque, calling Triple H a true inspiration:
“Tonight’s #NXT taping was EPIC. Want to thank EVERYONE involved. I’m totally floating above the ground. And here’s the deal – I can’t begin to tell you how much I admire this guy* Very inspiring friend, leader & entertainer (on stage & behind the scenes). Over the years He has shared advice & wisdom that has benefitted our business & made me a better person.
Another Hero that keeps that fire burning inside me. ~He’s kind of a big muscle’tastic version of #Yoda . bless you #TripleH”
Personally, I think it's really cool how Jones has been embraced by WWE, as the dude is a true talent and I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the conversations between these two guys. Maybe Triple H can inspire Adam to finish his new record? Last we heard, he had ideas for 20 songs. Tool are currently rapping up a string of arena tour dates.
