Triple H’s NXT Future Reportedly Revealed

Triple H

Triple H’s future involvement with NXT looks doubtful, according to a new report.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer has provided an update in The Game’s involvement with the recently rebranded NXT. Meltzer has stated that Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, is not in any conversation to resume running the brand or have any input in the direction moving forward:

”There are no plans right now, or even if Paul Levesque will return to running NXT, or for him to do any creative in the company due to health issues. Obviously, if his health improves and if he wants to, that could change but the word is that it’s not anything people have been told is happening imminently.”


Triple H has not been involved with the NXT brand since a cardiac event required the former WWE Champion to require surgery. In Levesque’s absence, Shawn Michaels has been heavily involved with the running of the brand.

In the same report, it has been said that those in WWE are impressed with the work that Michaels has done with NXT, in particular the creation of new stars at such a fast pace.

This follows the recent direction of establishing new names for the promotion as opposed to relying on independent wrestlers who have made their names outside of WWE.

“They are very happy with Shawn Michaels right now, feeling he’s been under pressure to make stars fast with the changes in the show and he made Breakker, Carmelo Hayes, Knight, Grayson Waller and Tony D’Angelo into stars very quickly.

“It was noted that was not his job when he was hired, but it fell upon him when Levesque had his health issue and they feel he has great aptitude for the creative process and understanding of how to make stars and make key people stand out.”

The news that The Heartbreak Kid is performing well in Triple H’s role seemingly confirms a previous report. On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, it was reported that as of the time of writing, Shawn Michaels’ job within NXT is safe. This follows the news that multiple personnel that helped Triple H build the black and gold era of NXT have since been released from WWE. This included the now former General Manager of NXT William Regal.
