Triple H is undoubtedly a veteran in the pro wrestling world, and he is responsible for a variety of changes in WWE. He was appointed as the Creative Head of the company when Vince McMahon retired back in July. To adhere to Triple H’s new guidelines, a huge number of changes have been made, including plans to nix themed Premium Live Events.
As previously reported, Triple H will be nixing the Hell In A Cell Premium Live Event. In fact, he is also likely going to nix Money In The Bank as a standalone Premium Live Event as well.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that WWE plans on nixing all themed Premium Live Events going forward.
Regarding rumors of concept changes in PPVs next year, the only thing we were told was as a general rule there will be less themed PPVs. The story going around as an example is that no show will be designated Hell in a Cell for example months ahead of time, but that the Hell in a Cell match would be used not on a specifically planned date but when a storyline feud reached the point that a Hell in a Cell match was needed. But even that in specific wasn’t confirmed, past that story could be accurate as Paul Levesque is trying to shape a new course and a new presentation and he wants to forge ahead not in copying Vince McMahon but in his own direction.
We will have to wait and see how Triple H changes the overall product. Fans are certainly very excited about the current era of WWE as well. If anything, this opens up a lot of possibilities to insert those themed gimmick matches in other premium live events throughout the year.
