Triple H Hints Kevin Dunn Is Staying Put

Triple H At Gorilla Position

With major changes taking place at the top of WWE recently, new Head of Creative Triple H has seemingly indicated one big change that won’t be happening.

On July 22nd the wrestling world changed forever when Vince McMahon announced he was retiring from the company he had owned for 40 years and built into a global powerhouse. The announcement came amid investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct and hush money payments against the long-time WWE Chairman.

With Vince McMahon gone, Stephanie McMahon and WWE President Nick Khan have moved into co-CEO roles while Triple H has assumed responsibility for talent relations and as the company’s creative driving force.

With a new era upon WWE, many fans expected long-time Vince McMahon allies to be phased out with particular focus on the company’s long-time television producer Kevin Dunn. Dunn has been widely criticised in recent years with Dunn drawing ire for what many feel are too many camera cuts on WWE programming.

Speaking to ESPN, however, Triple H appeared to indicate that Kevin Dunn was going nowhere and was in fact a key part of WWE’s equation moving forward:

“The intent is to continue the legacy of what has been going on, what made me fall in love with this business that he created, and to take it to new levels. To take it beyond where it is now. The only way we’re going to do that is with a team.”

“That’s with Steph, that’s with Nick Khan, that’s with myself, that’s with Kevin Dunn [who produces WWE’s TV programs], that’s with everybody that is here, that is with all this talent. We have the greatest, hardest-working talent in the world. I have no doubt in mind, with this team, we can do it.”

Triple H’s creative and talent relations decisions have already been felt on WWE television with The Game bringing back Karrion Kross and Scarlett on SmackDown.
