There are many, both within and outwith the company, that are gleeful for Triple H taking over WWE creative, with Becky Lynch now joining that growing list.
Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque was named as WWE’s new Head of Creative on Monday, 25 July, taking over in the role following the retirement of Vince McMahon. Many pro wrestling personalities have since reaffirmed their excitement for this new era, with Becky Lynch being the latest.
Speaking with ESPN, ‘The Man’ explained how the multi-time World Champion taking over creative responsibilities with WWE will bring in a new age:
“It is the dawning of a new era. For me, it’s crazy and sad because everything I’ve ever known about WWE has always had Vince in charge, and we wouldn’t have WWE the way it is if it wasn’t for Vince. He’s somebody who believed in me and allowed me to do everything that I’ve done. We have the opportunity to change some things that maybe weren’t so great that we didn’t love.
I think everybody’s very excited and optimistic because we know that the people in charge [are] some of the greatest minds in the business, you know. Having Triple H at the helm of the ship is phenomenal. What he’s done with NXT speaks for itself. What he did with the women’s division and how he allowed us to change the business forever speaks for itself.”
Becky Lynch continued, explaining how Triple H understands what a WWE Superstar requires to be creatively satisfied. The two-time Raw Women’s Champion also addressed the possibility of certain words and phrases being brought back, which has reportedly already occurred to a small extent.
Lynch last wrestled Bianca Belair at SummerSlam, the first premium live event under the era of Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Khan – though Vince McMahon had made the final call on a lot of the night’s proceedings beforehand.
A separated shoulder was soon confirmed for Becky.. It’s unknown how long, exactly, ‘Big Time Becks’ will be out of action, though a Fightful Select report noted that it was “50/50” on whether or not she required surgery.
