Triple H Expected to Take More Power in WWE Due to The XFL Launch

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 02/08/18


It was reported yesterday that Vince McMahon is no longer putting together 205 Live on a weekly basis. Triple H is now in charge of the show. According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, while Vince McMahon said at the XFL press conference that there would be no changes as far as his role in WWE goes with the forming of the league, the feeling is that Paul Levesque will gain a lot more control just based on the fact heíll have to because there are only 24 hours in a day. The hiring of Jeremy Borash is part of Triple H building his team, and there are other people who have been talked to with the idea of being on his team and coming up to fill the key positions when heís in charge of WWE.

There is some concern with Triple H taking over because producing one hour of TV a week geared towards hardcore fans is much easier than producing 7 hours of first-run TV for the main roster. But many feel his presentation of NXT, along with the booking and long-term plans that donít change as frequently, and the more organic feel he brings to NXT are positives in his favor.
