Could this be the biggest guest in Squared Circle Pit history? Paul "Triple H" Levesque joins me on this edition to talk about how he got into heavy metal, the bands that first inspired him, the connection between heavy metal fans and pro wrestling fans, how he licensed Black Sabbath for NXT TakeOver: War Games, how Lemmy thanked Triple H for introducing a whole new fanbase to Motorhead, his friendship with Ozzy Osbourne over the years, his friendship with Tool guitarist Adam Jones (some great stories here), and comparing NXT to heavy metal. We conclude the fun conversation with Triple H giving us some idea of the type of music Vince McMahon is fond of.
NXT TakeOver: War Games will stream live on Sunday, December 6 at 7 PM ET on WWE Network.
