“Why am I the person that was chose to do that?” Triple H asked, in regards to being appointed COO. “Ask Vince McMahon. Was it because I was the best candidate? Because I have the best mind for the business? Whatever that reason is… it doesn’t change the fact that I’m the COO of this company and I am charged with making those decisions.”
