• Update On Triple H’s WWE Status
According to John Pollock, “The Game” Triple H visited the WWE Performance Center in Orlando in June and made a pretty big statement:
“According to multiple sources, Paul Levesque was in Orlando today and spoke at the Performance Center.
Of the people I heard from, Levesque stated ‘I’m back’ – it is unknown what that entails but that was the wording I was given.”
Many people thought this meant that Triple H is back in power backstage (especially with his wife Stephanie McMahon being the Interim CEO of WWE) and is running NXT again.
However, that’s not the case.
According to the Wrestling Observer, what Triple H meant by ‘I’m back’ is that he’s back to the Office after his heart issues.
Triple H is not running NXT 2.0 and isn’t backstage at the show on Tuesdays.
Shawn Michaels and a small creative team is running NXT 2.0, with Vince McMahon telling them the major things he wants on the show.
Triple H is currently incharge of recruiting college athletes with WWE’s NIL program, with a tryout taking place during the SummerSlam 2022 week.
