Update On Reports Of Triple H Being Disappointed In Returning WWE Stars WWE

A new report has revealed an update on reports of Triple H being disappointed in returning WWE stars.

As previously mentioned, Paul “Triple H” Levesque reportedly “severely underwhelmed” by “underperforming” WWE stars he brought back.

Fightful Select (subscription required) provided an update on this report, noting that a longtime WWE employee has said this has been severely downplayed within the company.

One source stated that it wasn’t a thing they would ever expect to hear from Triple H to say out loud or directly from him, even if he believed it.

Specifically, one member of the WWE creative team said that nobody the company brought back expected to immediately ascend to the top of an already mapped out top of the card.

Another source familiar with the situation said that Triple H found it important to add more depth to the Raw and SmackDown brands. This was also told to numerous talent that were brought back in.

The report also notes that Levesque was hopeful it was a long term play. The company wants each act to be a little more over every time they come back to an arena.

It also confirms that several stars re-signed were even told when they were brought in that depth was a big point in bringing them back into the fold.

The depth issue was also a point that Triple H immediately brought up to creative upon coming into power, as anyone who had watched the show saw that Raw and SmackDown were largely the same shows each week.

Another source within the promotion pointed out to the performances of Johnny Gargano and Bronson Reed as “showing their value when given an opportunity”.

We will have further updates on this story when they become available.
