Since Triple H took the charge of the promotion as their Chief Creative Director, a lot of things have changed for good. The initial two pay-per-views of 2022 were miserable but the events that we saw in the second half were brilliant. Hence, let’s take a look at the changes the new Head of Creative has made in WWE.
Top 10 Changes that Triple H has made in WWE
10. Better Commentary
Under Vince McMahon, the commentators were restricted and they also had a list of words that they can’t use. However, Hunter has given more authority and freedom to the commentators. They can now discuss and make comments on wider wrestling concepts. Consequently, their main focus should be on explaining the storyline for an authentic viewing experience.
9. Making the Women’s Tag Team Division more credible
Since Sasha Banks and Naomi parted their ways with WWE, the company almost forgot about their Women’s tag division. The introduction of tag teams such as Damage CTRL, Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler and Asuka & Alexa Bliss was a strong foot in the favour of increasing credibility.
8. NXT UK’s Expansion
After last September’s Worlds Collide PPV, WWE sent NXT UK on a haitus. That happened because the creative department of the company decided to relaunch NXT UK in September as NXT Europe. They have planned to enlarge the scope from the United Kingdom to pan-Europe.
7. Retiring the 24/7 Championship
In the second half of 2022, WWE decided to discontinue the 24/7 Championship. According to reports, the decision was mainly taken by Triple H. The 24/7 Championship had a really exciting concept but it eventually ended up becoming a low card and comedy thing. Hence, the decision of retiring from the Championship was highly praised by the fans.
6. Better in-ring action on a weekly basis
Since Triple H came into power, the quality of fighting and in-ring action increased drastically on weekly shows. Under former CEO Vince McMahon, these shows were quite predictable and filled with boring fillers. However, Hunter has made sure that the fans find themselves induced in the storyline. Triple H has also given more freedom to the superstars so they can portray their character without many restrictions.
5. Bringing WarGames back
The concept of WarGames has always been quite intriguing to the WWE universe. And after experimenting with it in the NXT, Triple H brought back WarGames in last year’s Survivor Series with two highly interesting matches in the men’s as well as women’s divisions.
4. Rebranding NXT
Well, the WWE universe had a mixed opinion on the rebranding of NXT. Some people said that the old gold and black brand was great but few said that NXT 2.0 is better. However, since Triple H rebranded NXT, we have started seeing better-quality matches.
3. Focus on Long-Term Storytelling
No doubt that Vince McMahon had made numerous brilliant storylines but since a few years, WWE became really predictable especially after Roman Reigns became the WWE champion. However, under Triple H, long-term storytelling has regained its relevance such as Sami Zayn and The Bloodline.
2. Increased attention to secondary titles
The Intercontinental Championship and the United States Championship went out of context in the new decade. But currently, both titles have a solid champion. Gunthar has completed 250 days at the Intercontinental Championship which is a major thing while Austin Theory is also doing a great job with the US Championship making it more credible.
1. Resigning Major superstars
The first thing Triple H did after getting into power was brought back the released superstars. Vince McMahon released numerous WWE superstars without proper explanation over the last couple of years under the name of “Budget”. The return of the superstars has made the main roster of the company quite exciting immediately.
