Triple H was live with Cathy Kelley on Facebook after NXT Takeover: Toronto. Highlights of the chat are below.

– He said that he thinks Bobby Roode is headed straight for the NXT Title after tonight, and that Tye Dillinger will have to wait and see what happens next for him.

– He said the Dusty Rhodes Classic tournament is personal to him and that the Authors of Pain may be the most dominant tag team since another of Paul Ellering’s teams — The Road Warriors.

– He praised the Revival as a technically sound tag team and said the NXT Tag Team Title victory for DIY has been a long time coming and something they have done on their own terms.

– He said Asuka is one of the most dominant NXT champions ever and has gone through the entire NXT Women’s Division, but that Mickie James probably earned her respect tonight. He said James’ WWE future is up to her.

– He said it was a “shock” to see Samoa Joe win since many view this as Shinsuke Nakamura’s era in NXT. He said Nakamura kicks harder than anyone and that both of them are extremely physical. He added that he thinks there will be a rematch and that this rivalry isn’t over yet.

– He said the competition between RAW and Smackdown is legit and said Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar will be interesting tomorrow and WWE will have paramedics standing by just in case.
