In his conversation with Pat McAfee, Triple H said, “It was all a misunderstanding. You guys have had a relationship for a while. Positively partly and then becoming negative. You guys had interaction from the showbiz side of this, I think sometimes those lines get blurred and you guys had a relationship that became somewhat more contentious behind the scenes.”
“I apologize for Adam coming on your show. There’s an interaction between the two of you that I believe is Adam being a little bit overly-sensitive and you, honestly, Pat, being Pat McAfee, you’re a professional button pusher. That’s what you do. You needle people for a living. You do it very well.” added the cerebral assassin.
On Adam Cole issuing an apology to Pat McAfee, Triple H said, “I didn’t ask him to put out an apology, I didn’t ask him to do anything. Him being on your show, he asked me if it was cool. I said yes, he did your show and he’s a grown man and responsible for his actions in a way.”
