With Triple H now in charge of talent relations and creative in WWE, many have expected that changes would once again be made to the WWE recruitment policy.
WWE changed the policy around the time of the NXT rebrand, focusing less on hiring independent wrestling stars and more on hiring college athletes.
Triple H taking over has led to much speculation about the policy loosening, or perhaps changing back altogether. Dave Meltzer wrote in a Sports Illustrated article about SummerSlam and Triple H’s takeover, where he noted that the change to both college athletes and indie stars is expected, but nothing has yet been officially announced internally.
WWE held it’s most recent WWE tryouts over SummerSlam weekend, with Triple H, Paul Heyman and Big E leading proceedings.
Big E also spoke about WWE’s change in recruitment, noting that he sees why the company made the change, but also understands why fans are not happy.
