Triple H was given the role as the top person in charge of WWE Creative after Vince McMahon’s retirement. For many fans, this was the miracle they had been waiting for. He is still making more changes even now.
The Cerebral Assassin is more than aware of what fans truly want, and he has already made huge changes to the product to make them happy. This includes bringing back talent previously who were previously let go by WWE.
He also unbanned previously banned words and changed up some rules. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer provided some details as to what changes Triple H has made during matches.
There were a few interesting notes during the show on changes in unspoken WWE rules. While never spoken of, WWE producers for years were told one of the secret rules is that an illegal person can’t successfully attack a legal person in a tag match without it being a DQ. You could do the five-second double-team spot, but if the illegal person attacked the legal person, it had to be with the referee down. I
n addition, what was a trope in WWE major matches 20 years ago, the pin spot where the face has it won but someone from outside the ring pulls the ref out of the ring at the count of two, breaking up the pin in a singles match, was barred by Vince McMahon because it makes no sense. Granted, almost everything in pro wrestling makes no sense. I actually agreed with that because even though it is an easy pop, it just looks stupid. But Paul Levesque has brought the spot back, and debuted Solo Sikoa with it, pulling the ref out of the ring at two after McIntyre hit the Claymore kick just before the main event finish.
Triple H also dropped a tease for World Cup plans in WWE. We will have to wait and see what other changes The Game will introduce in the coming months. If anything, we certainly haven’t seen the last of WWE shaking things up in ways that Vince McMahon never would have.
