A new report has indicated that a handful of returning WWE Superstars have “severely underwhelmed” Triple H and are believed to have “underperformed.”
Triple H took on the role of Chief Content Officer in July following the retirement of former Chairman Vince McMahon. This role puts the WWE Hall of Famer at the apex of WWE’s creative decisions on television and in charge of hiring and firing WWE Superstars.
Beginning in 2020, WWE underwent an ongoing slashing of roster numbers to levels unseen before in the company. These had been put down to budget reasons but with Triple H in charge, the company began to bring many of these stars back into the fold.
WrestleVotes has reported that Triple H and other higher-ups in the company have been left “underwhelmed” by some of the returning stars:
“I’m told a handful of talent brought back in the “rehiring wave” over the summer have underperformed and severely underwhelmed Triple H & others since returning to the company.”
There is no suggestion as to who the stars in question are but under The Game’s watch, WWE has rehired Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Dexter Lumis, Candice LeRae, Hit Row, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Braun Strowman, Johnny Gargano, Dakota Kai, Bray Wyatt, Tegan Nox, and Emma.
