Mick Foley has spoken of his belief that Triple H will make one creative change so that fans can go home happy from WWE shows.
When Triple H became WWE’s Head of Creative – and later Chief Content Officer – many believed it would mark a change from the way Vince McMahon ran things.
The Game has already raised the profile of the Intercontinental, United States, and Women’s Tag Team Championships as well as allowing longer matches on episodes of Raw and SmackDown.
Now, another star who has a prolific history with Triple h has commented on another change he expects will be made in future.
While discussing Davey Boy Smith losing the European Championship at the UK One Night Only pay-per-view in 1997 on the latest edition of Foley Is Pod, The Hardcore Legend said it’s unlikely the new regime will go out of their way to have people lose in their hometowns, something that became a staple of the McMahon era.
“Send them home happy. That’s one of the – the Triple H regime is probably not going to go out of its way to beat people in their hometown as a matter of a statement.”
While this was not the case at Clash At The Castle, where Drew McIntyre did not topple Roman Reigns in the UK, Mick Foley thinks the decision for Reigns to remain Undisputed WWE Universal Champion was necessary to set up a potential WrestleMania 39 battle with The Rock.
“I think you have to keep it on Roman for the payoff. If they don’t get to Rock/Roman, you can look back and go, ‘God, would it have hurt to put that title on Drew?’”
