Triple H talks “game-changing” Netflix deal on The Pat McAfee Show

Appearing on The Pat McAfee Show, WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque talked about the Netflix deal at length.

Triple H said that Netflix is a “completely different animal” and they won’t have restrictions that they currently have on cable and network television.

He mentioned that currently, when the crowd chants “holy shit” or when The Rock decides to say whatever he wants to say, they have to take the audio out and sometimes black out the screen. But come January, they will not have that problem anymore with Raw on Netflix.

Triple H also said that they’re still working out stuff on how commercials are going to work, how ad breaks will fall, and length of the show, but streaming is the future and mentioned that the NFL and NBA are also dipping their toes to test the waters.

“It’s why this Netflix deal, for us, is so game-changing and everyone is going to be watching us in January,” he continued. “Especially other sports, from the business side, they’re going to be watching to see what we do, what we do differently, and how it’s received.”

WWE programming will transition to Netflix for the majority of the world come January of next year and more countries will be added depending when their current WWE television deal expires.
