Triple H Comments On Special Empty Arena Edition Of Friday Night SmackDown At WWE PC This Week

Paul "Triple H" Levesque, who wears more hats than any one human being should already, threw a couple more hats on last night to ensure the special empty arena episode of Friday Night SmackDown from the WWE Performance Center went on the air as scheduled.

After being moved from the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan on short-notice late this week, WWE scrambled to produce and broadcast their live, weekly WWE On FOX blue brand show from their own developmental training facility in Orlando, Florida.

Triple H was apparently largely responsible for helping get the show up-and-running this week, as the WWE EVP of Global Talent Strategy & Development worked as one of the announcers alongside Michael Cole for the empty arena broadcast from the WWE Performance Center.

Following the show on Friday night, "The Game" took to social media to comment on the extra effort that was put forth by the limited WWE crew at the WWE Performance Center to ensure the show was properly produced despite the unique conditions they were left with as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic.

"Tonight was an effort that brought together everyone WWE so we could go on air and entertain our most important constituency ... YOU," wrote the WWE EVP after Friday Night SmackDown went off the air this week.

"Thanks for letting me get my hands (and Michael Cole’s facial hair) dirty," Triple H concluded in a statement released via his official Twitter feed, which also contains some behind-the-scenes photos from this week's taping.
