Vince McMahon retired last month and Triple H was then made the head of Creative in WWE. This truly made fans happy, because they wanted this for many years. Many things are changing, and now WWE also doesn’t heavily script promo segments anymore.
For several years in WWE, most Superstars had been handed a script that they have to remember and speak as part of their promos. A large section of the WWE Universe criticize scripted promos as they feel it restricts WWE Superstars.
According to a report by PW Insider, WWE is allowing their superstars to have more freedom on the microphone by letting stars improvise more. It was also noted that at least a ‘sizable portion’ of the Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus match on the July 29th edition of SmackDown was called in the ring.
”We are told that a big part of what made the Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre match so great on Smackdown last week is at least a sizeable portion of the match was called in the ring vs. every single spot laid out to them ahead of times.”
Jon Moxley previously heavily criticized WWE promos for having too many unnecessary words and rarely getting their points across. Fans agreed with him as well. MJF has also stated that he would rip up a scripted promo if it was handed to him.
With Triple H in charge, clearly things are changing in a huge way. Now it simply remains to be seen how much more change WWE can bring about in the coming months.
