In a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, Triple H, discussed his thoughts on the recent Speaking Out Movement.
“As we have said in the beginning, this is terrible, you don’t ever want to see somebody be in situations that you have heard about in the Speaking Out movement, you have to listen to people. We have always been open to listening to everybody’s point of view, everyone’s side of the story. We’ve stated that as far as this movement goes, individuals are responsible for their own actions, but we also have a zero-tolerance policy for domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual assault.
If someone is arrested for that, they are immediately suspended. If they are convicted, they are immediately terminated, there’s no leeway or wiggle room, that is what it is. We also have the ability to fine, suspend or terminate for anything that has evidence of illegal misconduct or what we deem to be enough evidence to have the right to terminate. We’re there for our talent, we have an open door, certainly I do, for all talent to be able to come and tell us what is working for them, what is not working for them, if something is wrong and we help to make it right, that’s really what I think in this situation is all you can do, hear people out and then make the appropriate decision from there.”
