Triple H Signs Ex-World Champion Before SmackDown

Triple H has signed back several former WWE stars ever since he took to the role in the creative department. It has been noted in the past that former WWE star Brian Kendrick was recently tried out as a producer in WWE. Now, reports have emerged that former Impact Wrestling Champion Eric Young is returning to WWE as per the reports of PWInsider.



Triple H is reportedly signing back Eric Young

Young’s final Impact Wrestling TV appearance, a vignette filmed in secret in Nashville where he was literally stabbed to death by Deaner, aired on tonight’s episode of Impact on AXS TV.  The idea appears to be that Deaner has ascended to become the new leader of Young’s group, Violent by Design, which will continue with Alan Angels and Big Kon as the primary members.

Young had joined WWE NXT brand, where he headed up the Sanity faction with Nikki Cross, Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe.  He and Wolfe also held the NXT Tag Team Championship.

When Sanity was moved to the main roster in 2018, it quickly sputtered on the Smackdown brand as the Vince McMahon regime saw nothing in the group or any of its members creatively, which never made much sense given the quality of Young’s work across the board. Young was drafted over to the Monday Night Raw brand, ending the Sanity group officially.  Although Young was given the chance to produce some matches behind the scenes, on camera he was never given much of a chance to even showcase himself.  He was eventually released by the company as part of their pandemic cost-cutting in April 2020.

Young returned to Impact in July 2020, winning the Impact Championship two months later from Eddie Edwards.  For the last several years. Young and his Violent by Design group have been one of the highlights of Impact, especially their vignettes and promos.  At different points, the group featured Joe Doering, Rhino and Deaner.

We will have to see what the future holds for Young.
