Update: Ringside News has reached out and confirmed this story as 100% factual. Triple H simply isn’t around as his focus is with NXT.
Original: Triple H has a lot on his plate, and he doesn’t have time to be everywhere he might be needed at once. This became apparent in the past several months backstage in WWE.
WWE NXT has always received a considerable amount of Triple H’s attention. The black and gold brand is his baby, and it is currently spearheaded by Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Road Dogg. Those three former DX members have NXT creative funneled through them on the way to the viewers.
According to Inside The Ropes, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have both been absent from WWE television tapings “for some time.” The exception is obviously when Triple H was included in a segment.
Sources also say that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon haven’t been seen much at main roster shows for some time, barring things like Triple H’s 25-year celebration and such, of course.
Stephanie McMahon has appeared on television since the pandemic started, but it was via satellite. She didn’t have to leave her location in order to make a Zoom call and have it patched onto the Performance Center’s screen.
