Triple H Comments on WWE’s Goal to Reach Disney’s Level as a Global Brand
The debut episode of The Pat McAfee Show had Triple H as a guest and one of the topics discussed included his thoughts on WWE’s long-term goal to reach the level of Disney and Marvel as a major global brand.
“I feel like we’re just scratching the surface. Vince will say all the time, ‘One of these days, we’re going to be an overnight sensation.’ As big as it is now, when you go 20-30 years down the line, you’re really going to start to look at it as the way people [look at] Marvel or Disney. Disney not just about cartoons or princess movies, it’s so much more than that. Marvel is not just a paper comic book company anymore. Where WWE is headed is as a global brand. It is now, but it’ll be so much more in the future.”
