• Top NXT Star Wants To Face Triple H, But Doesn’t Want To Retire Him
As many say, Triple H is the father of NXT. Many wrestlers from the indies have found success because The Game signed them and gave them a chance on his brand.
One of those wrestlers is Adam Cole, the current NXT Champion. Cole has expressed interest in battling The Game one day, although he’s not interested in retiring him.
He admires Triple H so much that he wouldn’t want to retire him. Below is what Cole said:
“I would love to wrestle Triple H. Never said I want to retire the man. Definitely don’t want to retire Triple H.”
🏆 14-time @WWE World Champion.
📈 Longest EVER reigning @NXT champion.

• WWE Willing To Release Anyone
In an update from WrestleVotes, WWE officials are willing to release people from the company if they wish to leave:
“Hearing from a few different sources that WWE is willing to grant a release to ‘just about anyone’ who requests one.
Basically if a talent wants out, they can go. Will be interesting to see if anyone REALLY does want out, especially during this uncertain time.”
