WWE Crown Jewel was an event full of controversy even before they announced the show. But the recent global developments and murder of a Washington Post journalist really made the world not want WWE to do the show. But it went off anyway which saw Triple H get injured in the main event.
Triple H is a leader of the NXT brand and they all follow by the example he sets. It was noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Triple H getting injured in the main event of WWE Crown Jewel and electing to carry on with the match did not set the best example at all for the main roster.
After all, when you’re injured, you can’t really wrestle to the best of your ability. Not only that, but you run a huge risk of making the injury worse. Tegan Nox was used as an example as she competed against Rhea Ripley for quite a long time — way more than she should have after being injured during the first spot in the match.
Only time will tell if the idea of “do as I say, not as I do,” will become Triple H’s new catchphrase backstage. But in an environment like WWE Crown Jewel that saw Shawn Michaels’ in-ring return and so much money was on the table, it couldn’t have been an easy decision to accept an injury and call off the match. But you also have to factor in the “old school” mentality that Triple H certainly has for the pro wrestling business as well which likely had a lot to do with it as well.
