WWE Superstars Fear Losing Their Place Under Triple H
Triple H has already started pushing for a handful of his favorite wrestlers. Some behind the scenes fear losing their place in WWE.
Life under Vince McMahon was good for a small handful of WWE wrestlers, but now that Triple H is booking, some fear losing their spot on the card. It’s a natural feeling to have, of course. Each time a new boss takes over a business or establishment, there is a renewed sense of having to prove themselves once again. That’s the case at Pizza Hut and Olive Garden, and it’s the case in WWE. What we did under the old leadership is of little importance.
McMahon had a few clear favorites, but tended to downgrade too quickly with his shiny new toys. This mindset has resulted in stop-and-start spurts for many superstars. But for artists like Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns and, more recently, Theory, there was nothing to worry about if Vince liked your look. Triple H has a different eye for talent and seems to put more emphasis on ability in the ring. He still believes in stories that make matches, but he also has other preferences over Vince.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer gave an update on how things have been going behind the scenes in WWE since Triple H replaced the retired McMahon as Creative Head. “…we’re told it’s a positive and fresh vibe, but some talent is nervous about whether they’ll keep or lose their jobs… [Triple H] was described as caring about talent. Others have noted a wait-and-see attitude and there is also a degree of paranoia among some described to us from those who are unsure whether their places will be as good under the new regime.“
Triple H wasted no time finding spots to push a handful of his favorites from his days as an NXT booker. Ciampa may have seen the largest spike in its stock. He went from being the Miz’s lackey to being an American title contender in a single night. Dakota Kai returned to the company at SummerSlam while IYO SKY was slotted into a major main roster schedule.
All three wrestlers are artists Triple H has worked closely with in NXT, so it’s no surprise that they immediately received some monster pushes. Nor is it surprising to hear that a handful of wrestlers are weary of diet change. The theory, for example, has seemed weak since McMahon retired. He may or may not be one of the artists sweating his place on the chart, but it’s clear there are already winners and losers like WWE transitions from Vince McMahon’s vision to that of Triple H.
