Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque’s promotion to Head of WWE Creative may have an impact on NXT 2.0, as it will allegedly “revert back somewhat” to Triple H’s vision!
‘The Game’ was placed in the role of WWE Head of Creative in lieu of Vince McMahon’s was officially announced on Monday, with the Hall of Famer already stating that he wants to make a “creative splash” on the main roster.
NXT, however, may also be affected. Dave Meltzer addressed the situation in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, indicating that the brand will “revert back somewhat” to the black-and-gold era of the brand. No specific changes were named, however.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes and messages. Spent the day with the team looking for the future of @WWE!

Triple H had previously been at the helm of the ship in NXT for several years before it rebranded to NXT 2.0 last September. During this time, ‘The King of Kings’ received consistent praise for his booking of the brand, which far surpassed the quality of the main roster.
Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, and Adam Cole were among the names at the top of the brand during this period. Gargano is now a free agent, while Ciampa resides on WWE’s Raw roster, and Cole is signed to AEW, where he will reportedly remain for the next several years.
NXT was rebooted last September, ditching the black-and-gold era for a new colourful presentation and an influx of new talent, including Bron Breakker, Tony D’Angelo, Grayson Waller, and Cora Jade.
