Green Bay Packers line backer Clay Matthews, who made an appearance at the WWE SmackDown! taping on Tuesday is a big fan of professional wrestling, so when the opportunity to make an appearance on WWE arose, the 3rd generation NFL star jumped at the chance.
Not only did he make an appearance, he actually was given the opportunity to get involved in a match. He also was allowed backstage to see an entirely different realm of the business. He recently appeared on the Busted Open radio show and this is what he had to say regarding Triple H’s role backstage:
“He was very involved. In fact, it was interesting to see how involved both Vince (McMahon) and Triple H are involved with this, in regards to what they want to see, the camera. So it was pretty interesting to see the other side of the industry….of the business. He’s very involved. He told me what he’d like to see, what I should go out there and do, and how to play it up to the fans. Obviously, he’s been doing it for years now and he had some good advice, so I took it to heart and hopefully I did a good job.”
