Triple H Gets Praise for NXT Tapings, Mick Foley Works SmackDown Event, More

– Kane vs. The Great Khali, Cody Rhodes vs. Christian and Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus is advertised for the SmackDown live event on June 2nd in Augusta, Georgia.

– In a move that will affect WWE, TNA, UFC and boxing, the Attorney General in Oklahoma ruled that the state PPV tax is unconstitutional. In the state, a percentage of every pay-per-view buy was taxed.

– Mick Foley worked last night’s SmackDown live event in Poughkeepsie, New York as the ringside enforcer for Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Alberto Del Rio. Sheamus won the match and Foley ended up giving Mr. Socko to Ricardo Rodriguez.

– Last week’s WWE NXT tapings at Full Sail University were said to have ran far more smoothly than WWE’s RAW and SmackDown tapings. These are Triple H’s project and there was a lot of talk about how good he ran things.

    As a fan of wrestling for nearly 23 years and as much as ive bashed hhh over the years, personally im all for hhh taking the company by the horns and giving most fans a product they really wanna invest time and money in. what hes done in his role so far without being in charge so to speak as got me interested in the future of wwe. shouldn’t be too long before we get moxley, black and hero on primetime, we’ve already got antonio n sandow, things are looking up!

    Back in the day, Triple H was pretty arrogant, but hungry & confident. When he married Stephanie, it certainly helped his career & got him very high in the business as a dominant main eventer for years, but he still has shown he’s earned it. Triple H. vs. Undertaker at WM, the signing of talent like Kharma & Sin Cara, & his handling of the new NXT all show that he really is “that damn good”.

    He can’t do nothing good? Does that mean he does everything right?
