Vince McMahon retired back in July and Triple H was then made the head of Creative in WWE. This was a dream come true for many fans, as they wanted this for years.
Under Vince McMahon’s rule, there were quite few modern pro wrestling words that were banned. This included the word ‘wrestler’ as well as ‘Championship belts.’ Things have clearly changed now as Triple H has lifted the ban on such words.
During Drew McIntyre’s promo segment with Kevin Owens, McIntyre repeatedly said “wrestling” and ”wrestlers.” While speaking to Riju Dasgupta, Drew McIntyre claimed that Triple H did not reprimand him for using the word.
“I think the line was something like, ‘We’re wrestlers in a wrestling ring, let’s just freaking wrestle,’ and it’s amazing how much it blew up because that just came out in the moment.” McIntyre continued, “I wasn’t obviously reprimanded for it. I wasn’t told otherwise.
Hunter’s thing is just speak from your heart, speak from your gut, especially the more experienced talents. Stay within the lines of what you’re trying to achieve but speak your truth. I think we’re seeing a lot of superstars do that right now. Drew McIntyre, Drew Galloway the real person, is a very passionate, sometimes angry individual, but I love this industry, so everything I say does come from the heart.”
Things are clearly changing in WWE under Triple H’s reign. Fans and pro wrestlers alike couldn’t be happier with this surprising turn of events. We’ll have to see what WWE has planned for fans next.
