In his latest interview with Michael Cole, Triple H noted that he missed last week’s interview as he was busy with the WWE NXT: ArRIVAL event in Orlando, Florida and allowed John “Bradshaw” Layfield to step into the role.

In regards to not accepting a match with Daniel Bryan, Triple H said that he’s the COO of the WWE and is just too busy and while he took on The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar, they’re A+ players, while Daniel Bryan isn’t. Triple H says that there’s no denying that the fans want it and there’s no denying Daniel Bryan wants it, however he wants the fans to think of the deafening silence there would be at WrestleMania and said that the fans love Daniel Bryan, however they have no idea what they’re asking for him to get into.
