Triple H Talks The People’s Elbow

August 1, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

WWE Executive Vice-president of Talent, Live Events, and Creative Triple H recently appeared on BBC Radio 1 wth host Greg James. One of the topics covered was Duane “The Rock” Johnson’s famous finishing move The People’s Elbow. Here is what he had to say:
The People’s Elbow Starting as a Joke: 
“You’re trying to make each other laugh and one night The Rock did The People’s Elbow. [It] wasn’t known as The People’s Elbow, it was known as ‘watch this move that’s going to make all of you lose it in your corners’ These things morph in those ways, but they catch on. Trust me, we’re quick to go, ‘oooh, they like that, I’m sticking with that.’”

Waiting to Take The Move: 
“You’ve gotta wait for like 20 minutes while he takes his elbow pad off and works the crowd. He runs back and forth, then he comes up and drops an elbow on you that looks like it barely touches you, except that a lot of times the point of his elbow hits you right in the mouth and you come up bleeding and you’re like, ‘how can you bust me open on that?’ It’s also so funny that you’re running away to the bank with it.”
