Triple H was given the role as the top person in charge of WWE Creative after Vince McMahon stepped down from his role as WWE Chairman. This was the best thing that could have happened for WWE according to fans.

The Cerebral Assassin is more than aware of what fans actually want, and he has already made huge changes to the product to please them. This includes re-hiring previously fired talent, focusing on more in-ring action and changing the overall feel of the shows.

A fan named Rohit Pant recently emailed us, where he revealed that India has no access to official WWE merchandise. Many fans are using the hashtag #SearchForMerch to draw attention to the fact they have no way to purchase official WWE merchandise in India. He added that even Triple H responded to their request.

Hello Team Ringside News, I hope you’re having a great weekend! Myself and other creators along with wrestling fans in India recently ran the #SearchForMerch campaign on Twitter as we have no access to official WWE merch in India. The hashtag was trending all day. It has more than 65k tweets and reached more 150 million people. Moreover, Triple H himself responded to my tweet a few hours ago saying “We Hear You”. Actually, there is much more to this story than just a hashtag trending on Twitter. We are trying to urge WWE to expand their market in India. And I would like to share some exclusive details of our campaign with you. Ringside News is the number one website I refer to for my news videos and think it’d be a great way to reach more people to spread awareness in India. Already some outlets (Times Now, Sportskeeda, WrestleTalk and more) have written about this but we would like to give more insight if you’re interested.


WWE continues to expand its global reach through targeting expansion in India as well as the future launch of NXT Europe in 2023. We will have to wait and see whether India will get official merchandise or not.
