One of the biggest complaints in WWE, when Vince McMahon was still in charge, was certainly the lack of direction and how plans changed at the last minute for no rhyme or reason. Even today, WWE has to deal with the unexpected when it comes to planning out their television storylines.
Pro wrestling is an unpredictable thing and injuries can happen at any time. While speaking during the post-Survivor Series press conference, Triple H explained how WWE handles last-minute changes due to injury or any other reason.
The process is different and it’s constantly evolving because you just really can’t, about the time you say ‘Alright, this is what we’re doing. It’s written in stone, that is what we’re doing,’ somebody gets injured and the whole thing changes. When one piece changes, Creative is like dominoes. However many people you have on your roster, when one piece moves, it changes the dynamic of the whole deck.
You have to be constantly moving with it. So you’re setting yourself up for long-term, medium-term and short-term, knowing that it can change on a week-to-week basis, given injuries, given, you know, you put something out there that you think is getting this kind of reaction and it gets this kind of reaction and it’s like ‘Oh my god we’re onto something different here, we’re going to head in that direction.’
Triple H also doesn’t plan on keeping Hell In A Cell as a Premium Live Event. We will have to wait and see what WWE has planned for fans, as Survivor Series was a huge success.
