Triple H recently made his return to work full-time at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. He has been in charge of NXT before Vince McMahon took over and revamped the brand into NXT 2.0. Triple H was reported to have said, ‘I’m back,’ upon his arrival. It seems he has gained some more power now that he has returned to the brand.
Triple H is seemingly in charge of NXT 2.0
Triple H’s comment has sparked speculation among the fans. Some fans are hoping it means that The Game is back in charge of WWE’s developmental brand. That may be the case, but nothing has been confirmed.
Dave Meltzer talked about Triple H returning to NXT and the Performance Center on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio. He noted that while it is not clear if The King of Kings is running the show at NXT, there seems to have been a change in the dynamic of how things are run. Triple H has more power than he did before, possibly with help from his wife, new interim WWE CEO Stephanie McMahon.
“He was just there. He said that he was back. He didn’t say what exactly that meant. I asked some people there, and they said that he just said things are happening, and he can’t talk about them right now, but he’s back. So, that’s basically it. Whatever it is will come out in the days to come, but nobody knew exactly what he meant by that. Was he back running NXT? Perhaps. Is he back with more power? Yes. He does seem to have more power now.”
Hunter had previously undergone successful surgery back in September last year following a cardiac event caused due to a genetic heart issue. He recently announced his retirement from in-ring competition amid the health scares as well. But, the fans are loving the fact that he is back stronger in the behind the scenes duties.
