Triple H Lies About WWE Dropping "Women's" From Titles - Calls It a "Rumor"

So, the press release discussing it and actually, you know, DOING IT on TV didn't happen?

Triple H addressed the rumor that WWE was planning to drop the “Women’s” portion of the NXT Women’s Championship during his media call this week. As you may recall, it was previously reported that NXT had made the decision to take the gender-specific part out of the title’s name; however, this was seemingly reverted early this month.

According to Wrestling Inc, Triple H acknowledged the reports and said there was discussion of it, but said that the reports were overblown. He noted, “There were conversation that were had. It was basically about not having to beat it into the ground when you say it, but it just got run with and once… when you have that many people working on a product, and something gets taken the wrong way, everybody in trying to do their job, just spreads it.”

He continued, “There was never an edict, there was never anything. It really was what it was, of just trying not to… if you’re showing a graphic, you don’t have to say, the title belt that says ‘Women’s’, the graphic that says ‘Women’s’, the announcers saying ‘Women’s’, so everybody is… but you get it. There are pictures of women there, you get what it is. You don’t have to beat it into the ground. It was more of, it just got run with and speculated on.”
