Triple H became the face of NXT as he grew the brand into a true fan favorite. The WWE mold of homegrown stars was frequently broken by the developmental brand. Independent stars like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Samoa Joe began showing up on WWE programming and delivering incredible matches. WWE decided to go in another direction recently, and Triple H’s vision has been left in the dust.

The former NXT boss suffered serious cardiac episode last year. The health scare has kept his time at work limited as he faced a long recovery. Fans have been wondering if Triple H would be returning for some type of regular role.

Right now, WWE has no plans for Triple H. That includes NXT and creative. According to Dave Meltzer in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Game is still dealing with his health issues.

“There are no plans right now, or even if Paul Levesque will return to running NXT, or for him to do any creative in the company due to health issues. Obviously if his health improves and if he wants to, that could change but the word is that it’s not anything people have been told is happening imminently.


NXT 2.0 is a far cry from what Triple H envisioned. WWE is banking on building new stars from the ground up. The NIL program is in place to try and attract young athletes that the company can build into superstars.

Triple H has been a part of the fabric of WWE for fans for decades now. An unfortunate health problem has forced him to reorganize his priorities. Hopefully he can fully recover and get back to work soon.
