Triple H: WWE Will Not Have Censor Issues With Move To Netflix

Triple H says WWE will not have issues with censoring once RAW’s move to Netflix officially begins in 2025.

Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H was asked whether has he thought about how he might tweak things for Netflix with the programming not being on traditional television.

“We spend large chunks of our time every day, when we’re not thinking about business at hand now, we’re thinking about those moments, so in the fall, as the shows shift around, and once we get to Netflix, Netflix is a completely different animal,” Triple H said. “Streaming service, how are commercials gonna work? How are breaks gonna work? What’s the length of time? What are the restrictions? What are not restrictions?

“Right now, just as an example of us being on FOX, if the crowd chants ‘Holy shit,’ or something much worse, they just take that audio. Sometimes they take the picture and the audio off, and it’s just black screen.”

Triple H On Censorship

When it was noted that some of The Rock’s promos were censored earlier in 2024, Triple H noted that WWE would not have these issues once they moved to Netflix.

“The Rock comes in, and you sorta kinda can’t tell The Rock what to do, right. What are we gonna tell him? So he does what he does,” Triple H said. “But we won’t have those issues with Netflix. The ability to be live globally, the ability to have everything seen all at once everywhere, it’s a game-changing moment. I think in many ways, not to disparage other partners because we want to be everywhere, but that’s sort of where the world is heading is streaming services.

“You see the NFL sticking their toe in the water, NBA, every sport is. I think that’s why this Netflix was, for us, so game-changing. I think everybody’s gonna be watching us in January, especially those other sports. From a business side, they’re gonna be watching to see what we do, what we do differently, and how that’s received.
