Former WWE Head Writer Talks Meeting Vince For First Time, Almost Fighting Hayes, HHH, Stephanie
WrestlingINC: What are your thoughts on Triple H?
Greenfield: I did not get a lot with Hunter too well. Look, he's a guy who is very sure of himself because -- to some degree -- he's earned that. He's the -- whatever he calls himself now -- the 29 time world champion and he's certainly built himself a legacy that is not spoken of by his actual level of talent from my perspective as a fan. What are you going to say?
But, I found him backstage to be manipulative and self-serving. Not a great joy and pleasure to work with in any respect. [laughs]
WrestlingINC: When the time does comes for Triple H and Stephanie to take over from Vince, will that be a good thing or a bad thing?
Greenfield: It's tough to say. This is a reality of being on the outside. Certainly it's portrayed publicly that Triple H is going to be 'the guy'. I think that would be terrible for the company. If the reality is that Steph is going to be in the position that Vince is in now, I think it'll be a great thing.
This is something, I think, people should understand. [This] happened at least when I was there at the company; she's perfectly capable of disagreeing with and vetoing Hunter. At least that was the case at that point. It's sort of a common meme or whatever that they're in lock-step and speak with one voice. At least in my time with the company, that certainly wasn't the case. They both had their own ideas and Stephanie's were usually about a bagillion times better. [laughs]
