Triple H serves several roles in WWE. He worked as a Superstar before going backstage which is where he works to this day. He was previously Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy & Development. That job title was changed to a Talent Relations and Talent Development role.

While speaking to a teleconference following NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Triple H was asked about his new job title. He stated that not much has really changed. He did have some things taken off his plate because he had so much of it already.

“It really didn’t (change). It was just to make a concerted focus with NXT being live every week and NXT UK, obviously before the pandemic. Plus, the increase drive from us to shift to a larger international presence in the same format. Replicating what we did with NXT (in the US) and NXT UK, taking that to a whole other level. Going to other countries; India, Middle East, Latin America, Japan, Mexico. Putting a focused increase on all of that. I still do all of the stuff I did before, I just don’t have the day-to-day responsibilities. Sometimes, people see the titles, but they don’t understand what’s going on and the responsibilities of what the categories are. I don’t have to have the day-to-day responsibilities of live events domestically and internationally, which is a lot. The talent relations aspect, the travel, all those aspects, the intense day-to-day; those were all things that I was responsible for that was taken off my plate to give me more freedom to be able to grow internationally and development of talent and expand that out.”

Triple H is only one man, but he can assist and run practically every aspect of the pro wrestling business at this point. If he hopes to take over for Vince McMahon one day he will need to be familiar with the finer details about how things really work.
