Paul Levesque wants to create more moments like Brock Lesnar on a tractor

Now that Paul “Triple H” Levesque has stepped into the role of chief creative officer of WWE after Vince McMahon stepped down from the company, there have already been some changes – including returning wrestlers. But during a recent WWE investor call, Levesque explained that there is more to come.

Speaking to investors — and everyone else on the call — Levesque discussed how he returned to the company and what fans can expect in the coming months. “I’ve been lucky enough to work in WWE for 30 years, whether it’s on the screen in the office, in the writer’s room or in the performance center, and many of them, at the same time, whatever opportunity was available, I always took it,” Levesque said during the call. “I always wanted to learn behind the scenes, ‘why’ we did what we did. So I could use these learnings and become the best talent I could be. In my new role as head of creative and talent great responsibility, but I am incredibly confident that we have the right team in place to succeed. More to that mission is to orchestrate storylines and creative that appeal to our existing fans and help us grow the WWE Universe along the way. It’s early days, but we believe you have saw some initial signs of this positive momentum at Summerslam last month.”

The July PPV happened a little more than a week after McMahon retired from WWE. The Summer Premium Live Event (PLE) – formerly known as PPV – had many surprises. And this included one of the company’s biggest stars and breeding equipment, as you can see in the video above. “Brock Lesnar ran a front loader out during his entrance and at one point in the match he picked up the ring with the tractor and raised his 15 feet in the air causing his opponent Roman Reigns to tumble to the floor and as I I have mentioned, I have been in this business for a long time. I’ve seen a lot, but I’ve never seen anything like it [what] took place that night at Summerslam.”

“In 48 hours alone, we want to continue to create these moments and memories that will last a lifetime,” Levesque continued. “And we’ll get there by writing compelling stories for the most exciting characters. And then on top of that, developing new talent. Talent is an area this company has a renewed focus on.”

Levesque mentioned trending #1 on Twitter for Summerslam because of the tractor moment, but WWE has been missing the water cooler moments leading up to the event lately. Memorable moments don’t have to be over-the-top like someone lifting a wrestling ring with a tractor, but they have to be moments people will remember forever, Levesque said.

WWE’s next PLE is Clash at the Castle on Saturday, September 3rd. This will be the first major stadium event in the UK for 30 years. It will take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. It means UK fans will finally be able to watch a WWE event in the evening and not in the middle of the night.

GameSpot will be covering Clash at the Castle, so be sure to check back on September 3rd for live coverage from 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
