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]
Click here for part two of the interview, where Greenfield talks about WWE exploiting Eddie Guerrero's death, Rey Mysterio being buried during his first run as champion, producing the Trish Stratus - Mickie James feud, pitching ideas involving Randy Savage and much more.
