Wrestling journalist addresses comments made by Triple H that some people thought were “disrespectful”

During Sportskeeda.com’s WrestleBinge podcast, veteran wrestling journalist Bill Apter addressed comments made by Triple H after a question was asked at the WWE Summerslam 2023 post-show press conference. Apter stated the following…

“A lot of people were defending me thinking that Triple H disrespected me at the SummerSlam post-press conference.”

“I had asked a question to him and I said, ‘Why the heck is the United States Heavyweight Champion in a Battle Royal’, and he sarcastically, jokingly, because it’s a relationship I have with him said, ‘Well, to win a Battle Royal, to throw people over the top rope’, and he went into this, and you know, it got a good laugh. Then he explained how he couldn’t put all the talent on the show because it was too long. But my feeling was that one of the main champions in the company should not be in a plain old Battle Royal there, and a lot of people thought that he was sort of too sarcastic and disrespecting me, and I just want to set the record straight. He was not disrespecting me one bit.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
