WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker has shared his thoughts on his former rival Triple H moving into the hot seat as the creative force in WWE.
With the wrestling world still reeling from the news that Vince McMahon is no longer the man in charge of WWE, those in the business are coming to terms with Triple H being the new creative force in the sports entertainment behemoth.
One former WWE Superstar possibly best placed to speak on the subject is The Undertaker. The Deadman worked very closely with Vince McMahon during his thirty-year career in WWE and he shared the ring – and shed blood – with Triple H on more than a few occasions.
Speaking to ESPN, The Undertaker gave his thoughts on what might happen in this new era and how it could lead to a more aggressive product:
“They’re loosening the reins a little bit as far as what guys can say and do, I think the product will probably be a little more aggressive. I think that’s going to come through in the creative.”
“They’ve kind of been in this entertainment mode, so they’re going to have to get some grit and meanness.”
The Undertaker also gave his thoughts on Triple H and says with him in charge it’s a step in the right direction:
“I mean, he’s brilliant, he really is, I don’t think he gets enough credit for his wrestling acumen. I think he’ll be a huge asset to the development of a lot of guys. And he’s a no bullsh*t kind of guy too. He’s going to let you know what you’re doing that’s right and what you’re doing that’s wrong. I think it’s going to be a step in the right direction with Hunter.”
Triple H has recently indicated that not all the changes fans expect might come to fruition with a major backstage name possibly keeping their job.
