AEW star Matt Hardy has commented on Triple H taking over WWE creative, arguing that this development is a game-changer.
Triple H was notably named head of creative following Vince McMahon’s retirement and WWE departure.
Speaking on his Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast with Jon Alba, Hardy noted that his friends in WWE have indicated that Triple H is way more accessible than McMahon ever was.
Believing that the door is now open for many to return to WWE, Hardy said:
“This deal with Triple H taking over WWE is a game-changer. I mean, on top of that, it also opens up the door for so many people to go back. There are so many more people that have a better relationship with Triple H than they did Vince.
“I have already spoken to people that are there. Triple H has already been so much more accessible, from the people I’ve talked to there with current experience.
“So it’s great. I also think it’s going to make the competition of the industry healthier as well.
“I am team AEW. Whatever team I’m playing for, I’m waving that flag until my dying day, but it is a good thing because there are people who could potentially leave AEW that may end up going to WWE, and they would be more apt to doing that because Triple H is in charge. So I think that it’s a super-positive thing.
“Another huge positive thing to Triple H running WWE now is — Vince — it is what it is but his views and his mindset about pro wrestling were a little bit antiquated. That’s no slight on him…as we get older, it is definitely much harder to keep up with what is new and what is trendy, and have your finger on the pulse of pro wrestling. Triple H is much more tuned into 2022 pro wrestling, much like Tony Khan is.
“Now I think you have two guys who really have their fingers on the pulse of pro wrestling.
Since taking over WWE creative, Triple H has brought Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, Scarlett and Dexter Lumis back to WWE TV.
Matt Hardy last wrestled on the August 3 edition of AEW Dynamite, losing to Christian Cage in singles action.
