More changes are reportedly on the way as Triple H takes over the booking Of WWE
Triple H has already made his mark on the WWE in the short term he’s been in charge of WWE’s booking and talent relations. During the King of King’s short time implementing his creative direction for the WWE, Karrion Kross & Scarlett have returned to the WWE, the 24/7 championship hasn’t been featured and Bayley has returned as part of a stable with Dakota Kai and Io Sky.
Yet there are reportedly more changes to come according to legendary wrestling promoter and father of Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Jarrett. During The Gathering event in Charlotte, NC, Jerry Jarrett was asked what he believes will change now Triple H is in charge of the creative direction of the WWE.
Jarrett went on to share some information he got from someone within the WWE as to what Triple H has told the WWE crew, with the message reportedly being that Triple H will be moving away from Vince McMahon’s way of creative. Jarrett said…
“They didn’t tell me not to tell anybody. So I’ll tell you, Hunter called, this week, the Raw crew and the Smackdown crew and said, ‘My father-in-law and Stephanie’s father….We admire him and we respect him. He reached success that we would never know without him, but we don’t know how to do it his way, and we’re not going to try. We’re going to try a new way.’… and I think the new way is to put wrestling instead of sports entertainment. I mean, I that’s pure speculation on my part.” (H/T wrestlingnewsheadlines.com)
Triple H is a well known fan of non sports entertainment style wrestling, with the former World Champion being a huge admirer of Harley Race and Ric Flair aswell as being trained by Killer Kowalski when breaking into wrestling. When booking NXT, Triple H’s creative direction was strikingly different to that of Vince McMahon’s with more emphasis being put on serious wrestling and less on comedy, aswell as pushing talent such as FTR, Bobby Roode and Tommaso Ciampa that didn’t particularly thrive when under Vince McMahon’s control.
