Triple H on Still Wrestling, Upcoming Match with Jinder Mahal, Possibly Being Cheered

Triple H recently spoke with ESPN UK to promote Saturday's match against Jinder Mahal at the WWE Supershow live event in New Delhi, India. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Possibly being cheered over Jinder in India:

"I don't know. I'm a lot better at being the villain. It would be interesting to see when we get there. I've been cheered and I've been booed. If the fans want to support me because they have been watching me for the last 20-plus years, that's great."

How the match came to be:

"You could get some support because of nationalism. But once you are in the WWE, you become a global icon. When I was in India, a lot of people asked about him (Mahal) and what I thought about him. Did I respect him? A lot of people have mixed feelings about Jinder Mahal as a representative. In some ways he represents India, but a lot of people don't like the way he represents himself as a WWE superstar. The question was asked so many times that I thought what better way to prove what I thought than stepping into the ring with him. If Jinder wants to prove it to the fans in India, there could be no better way than by doing it against me there."

Why he still wrestles:

"It's still fun for me. It's still something I enjoy. And it's something that I will always enjoy. It's fun to get out there and remember why you enjoy this in the first place."
