A new sit down interview with Triple H and Michael Cole has been posted over at WWE.com, and below are some highlights:
-On not putting Brock Lesnar in a match on Raw like Lesnar requested, HHH said Orton earned his WWE World Title, Batista earned his title shot by winning the Rumble, and if Lesnar wants something in WWE, he has to earn it too. HHH also said he doesn't respond well to "or else."
HHH added that he gave Lesnar the opportunity to qualify for the Royal Rumble, but Lesnar turned it down.
-Cole asked HHH about Lesnar interfering in the Tag Team Title match on Raw, and HHH said Goldust and Rhodes will get another title shot on Raw this Monday night, in a Steel Cage match.
-HHH said there's no conspiracy theory behind why he put The Shield in the main event of Raw, and that he put The Shield in the match not to protect Randy Orton if they qualified for the Elimination Chamber match, but because they are huge stars that belong in the match.
-Cole finally asked HHH about The Ultimate Warrior & Jake Roberts being inducted in to the Hall of Fame, and HHH put over Roberts by saying that it's great Roberts has finally got himself to a place in his life where he can finally grab hold of the honor he deserves.
