Reason why Triple H did not get executive director role

Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff both have major roles in WWE as they are the Executive Directors for RAW and Smackdown Live respectively. When this information came to be known to everyone, many people wondered why Triple H wasn’t given the role.

Bryan Alvarez explained on Wrestling Observer Live that he was told that the reason why Triple H wasn’t given one of the roles of Executive Director was due to the fact that WWE wants him to continue focusing on NXT.

Triple H managed to turn NXT into arguably the best brand in WWE with many talented superstars and the TakeOver specials stealing the show every time. Perhaps one day Triple H will have a bigger role in the company, but for now, he is content with NXT.

    HHH I think is having way more fun in NXT right now.

  • Grant Thomson

    You know that the C.O.O. title is just for TV, right?

    My best guess is Triple H was offered Raw or Smackdown but doesn’t trust anyone but himself to pick a replacement to oversee NXT. The only thing Vince is good at these days is ruining things.

  • Darrin Tyler

    He’s 5he COO that’s why. He’s basically still in charge.

    It isn’t as if he wasn’t already in a position to be somewhat calling the shots on both shows, or certainly at least the ones he was on, years ago anyway.

    I really doubt HHH would want to give up NXT anyway. He has made that brand his own and in many respects it is his baby. I also do not think he would want to dilute his input by running more than one show.
    Plus he knows that it is inevitable that one day he will be running the whole show anyway.

    It makes sense. Let Triple H handle the future, while Bischoff and Heyman handle the present.
