An AEW star thinks Triple H will be successful in his new role with WWE.
On July 22, Vince McMahon announced his decision to retire following WWE investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
On July 25, the company officially announced that Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan will be taking on the role of Co-CEOs, while Triple H would take over all creative duties on the main roster.
Speaking to Rewind, Recap, Relive, AEW star Bobby Fish discussed Triple H assuming the role of Head of WWE Creative.
“Hunter is brilliant. The time I spent learning under him, brilliant is the only description I can attribute to that man when it comes to pro wrestling. I’m happy to see things seem to be working out there in a more harmonious way. When I left, there was a lot of transition. It’s never fun to see people that you’ve worked with, and that you’re friends with, and you care about their success or their day-to-day, even office people and medical staff. You make friends with these people over the years and you want to see them in a good work environment and enjoying themselves. We certainly all were, at that time, when we were there and Hunter was the head coach or quarterback or whatever you want to call it. Those things changed, things got a bit wonky. I left after my release, so I can’t speak firsthand, but to know that there is a chance now with Hunter back doing his thing, that things could return or maybe become something entirely new or different, but under him. I can’t see anything in the wrestling business that he has a hand in that’s not going to be successful. I’m obviously biased and partial to the man, but I would go to war for him seven days a week.”
There has been various reports and rumors about AEW stars being more interested in coming to WWE now that Triple H is in power, which Tony Khan has expressed concern over.
Bobby Fish signed with AEW in late 2021 after his NXT release and aligned with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly as the Undisputed Elite.
