Triple H is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most popular WWE Superstars in the history of the company and has been involved in numerous matches and feuds throughout his career. He is also the brains behind NXT and helped make it grow to what it is today. Triple H buying WWE bombshell also leaked recently.
WWE have released Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett, and Buddy Murphy. The reason cited was part of budget cuts, and Strowman was being paid $1.2 million per year according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The former WWE Universal Champion signed a new contract in October 2019, so the budget cut regarding Strowman is the WWE’s biggest saving financially from all of the talent cuts in the last year plus during the pandemic.
Now it seems the company has hired new people. According to a report by Mike Johnson at PWInsider, WWE has hired George Carroll to join the NXT creative team. Carroll was reportedly backstage at Tuesday’s NXT. Carroll had worked as a Writer/Content Producer for ROH, Director of United States Operations for NJPW, and Senior Talent Coordinator for MLW.
WWE has also hired John D’Amico as Director, Production Management for live events. He is back on a full-time basis.
