John Pollock of Post Wrestling reports Paul Levesque was in Orlando today and spoke at the Performance Center.
Levesque stated “he’s back” – it is unknown what that entails but that was the wording Pollock was given.
With Stephanie McMahon stepping in to run WWE, while Vince McMahon seedy business dealings are investigated, it only makes sense that Stephanie’s husband who basically built NXT come back and help fix the struggling show. It’s no secret that NXT 2.0 has been a disaster and the show that launched names like Sasha Banks, Adam Cole, and Becky Lynch is nothing more than a shell of itself.
Could Triple H’s return magically bring the brand back to its yellow and black roots? No, probably not; considering Mr. McMahon still holds the overall book and has maintained creative control of the promotion despite his boardroom ousting the basic tenants of the show will likely stay the same, but if Levesque can return to the promotional territory he helped to put on the map and re-inject some of the compelling angle-building that made NXT must-watch during his heyday as it’s booker, then maybe the show could return to its former glory and create the next generation of Tommaso Ciampas, Johnny Garganos, and Adam Coles with more McMahon-approved athletes- even if that trio all technically got their starts elsewhere.
