Here's How Triple H Reportedly Feels After Those Huge NXT Releases This Past Week

WWE has made some sweeping changes to NXT in recent months, and last week, that resulted in a lot of Triple H's old allies being released. Now, we have some backstage news on The Game's reaction to that...

It's been another tough week to be a WWE employee (and fan) as the latest wave of cuts saw the likes of William Regal, Road Dogg, and Samoa Joe released. They were all considered Triple H hires from his time in charge of NXT, with the prevailing belief he would one say bring them with him when he was put in charge of WWE's main roster in place of Vince McMahon.

Well, Nick Khan being hired as WWE President and NXT loss to AEW: Dynamite during the Wednesday Night War has changed things, and NXT 2.0 is not a brand The Game has any invovlement with.

While NXT was once the hotted promotion in pro wrestling, AEW proved itself a true alternative and the gloss quickly wore off the black and gold brand (that once sold out TakeOver shows across the globe). Now, NXT 2.0 is essentially RAW-lite, and Wade Keller is reporting that morale there is now not good.

"I’ve talked with people who had said Triple H was building his team that he would bring with him to the main roster, and if his day came to run the main roster he wanted his group of people," he explains. "At some point, it was thought that it would include William Regal and Gabe Sapolsky and Road Dogg and they’re gone." 

Keller would go on to add that he's only heard a little about how Triple H has reacted, noting: "NXT just isn’t what it once was. I’ve heard just a little about Triple H’s reaction to all of this and nothing super reportable other than it sounds like he’s bummed out."

Well, no one can blame him for that! After his recent heart scare, Triple H appears to be focusing on helping prepare athletes WWE hires to become pro wrestlers, a far cry from the work he did creating and running NXT. As for who takes charge when Vince is gone...your guess is as good as ours!
