More Flexibility Being Given In WWE Promos In Recent Weeks? WWE

A new report has revealed that there is more flexibility being given in WWE promos in recent weeks.

Since Triple H took over creative following the retirement of Vince McMahon, there has been various changes seen on WWE programming.

From more wrestling on the weekly shows to characters reverting back to old gimmicks or names, the Triple H regime has seen various improvements throughout the past 10 months.

Fightful Select (subscription required) reported that several of the wrestlers have been given more flexibility in their promos in recent weeks.

One of the examples given to this change was the recent Karrion Kross and Shinsuke Nakamura program.
