Raquel Gonzalez Says NXT Feels Weird Without Triple H

Raquel Gonzalez has opened up about Triple H’s role in NXT, explaining what the brand has been like in his absence.

Triple H has yet to return to his regular backstage NXT duties, after suffering a reportedly serious cardiac event in September. In Triple H’s absence, Shawn Michaels has been running things backstage at NXT 2.0 tapings.

Speaking with Wrestling Inc Daily, Raquel Gonzalez noted that the names currently running NXT has always been close with The Game. Calling the backstage team’s positivity a blessing, Gonzalez said:

“(Triple H) is the most amazing influence and person to have here, especially on Tuesdays and especially at pay-per-views like WarGames. We do miss him a lot but we hope that he’s getting well and everything’s going good with his recovery, and it’s a full recovery.

“It is pretty weird. But I will say the team that we have, has always been a part of Triple H’s as well, so Triple H being the peanut butter (to NXT’s jelly), he’s never only been the one person of peanut butter. We have Shawn Michaels, Matt Bloom, Road Dogg, Scotty Armstrong, Terry Taylor, Norman, Scotty 2 Hotty, all these coaches, Sara Amato.

“Now having Storm and Corino here as well, it’s been a blessing having an amazing team who are positive, who kind of stepped in when Triple H had to step away for a little bit and have taken that role and been there, not only for the new talent but as well for the talent that has been here for a while and are trying to adjust to the changes as well.”

Former Performance Center coach Scotty 2 Hotty recently revealed that he requested his release from WWE. His return to the ring has been announced for February 2022.

At NXT WarGames, Gonzalez will team with Io Shirai, Cora Jade and Kay Lee Ray to do battle with Dakota Kai, Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne.
