I see a lot of posts these days by haters who say that Vince McMahon should retire, and Triple H will take over. They are also excited when Triple H takes over WWE and site the success of NXT as an example. What? You really think things will be much different? Here's some points to consider:- 1) First off, let's explain a misconception. People here mark for NXT like it is some indy league, in opposition to WWE, and that if you start following NXT, it will cause WWE to pick up its game. NXT is NOT an independent company! It belongs to the WWE. That means when you mark for NXT talent, you are marking for WWE talent. When you criticise RAW or SD Live! it doesn't make NXT stronger. ROH is independent of WWE.TNA Impact is independent of WWE.NXT isn't. How come you people didn't mark for people like John Cena and Batista when they first came on the scene? They wrestled in a WWE development league, called "Ohio Valley Wrestling". So, what is the difference between OVW and NXT. NXT is TELEVISED on WWE Network. That's it. That's all the point of difference. You only even know about these people because of WWE Network. So cheering NXT is cheering WWE. So, Vince McMahon is responsible for NXT. If he didn't want NXT, or saw it as a threat, he would stop financing it, and it would die. So Vince McMahon is the reason NXT exists, and is allowed to continue. 2) People here say it is great how Triple H builds new stars. Okay, then I must have him mistaken for another guy called Triple H. The Triple H I remember buried guys like Goldberg, Booker T and RVD. Kane had the greatest match in RAW history (the TLC Match which was voted "Greatest RAW Match" at RAW XXth anniversary. But all people remember is a guy called Triple H mumbling something about some girl called Katie Vick. He was even generous enough to do the job for a debuting Sting at "Wrestlemania 31". Oh, that's right, he didn't. Now, I know you will say that those guys were from other companies, and somewhat established. But what about someone like Maven? Remember him? He was the winner in the original season of "Tough Enough" and he was a big deal enough to pin Undertaker for the Hardcore belt and was involved in a story where he, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit and Randy Orton got to take it in turns to run RAW for a month. The other three I knew what to expect, but Maven was unproven in the role. However, his night of being GM, a star emerged. He was charismatic and had good interplay with others. That night he main evented RAW against Triple H. Now, I read that the original reason for Triple H beating Maven at the end of the show was for Maven to turn on Jericho, Benoit and Orton, and join Evolution. This would have set him up, as rubbing shoulders with Triple H and Ric Flair, and having feuds with Jericho, Benoit and Orton, would have stamped him as a star. Yet nothing changed. He didn't join Evolution and barely did much again, until he was future endeavoured. I think that Triple H didn't want a young guy like Maven to be a star, and take his spotlight. Triple H also did the same thing to Randy Orton. Orton was set to turn face and fight Triple H at WM21. But Triple H fast-tracked it, fought Orton at "No Mercy", buried Orton, and instead fought Batista, a guy who is not as athletic as Orton, was only fighting his third singles match and wasn't over like Orton. Also, Triple H trained him, so he put Batista over to make himself look good and make sure that Orton didn't go past him. Has Triple H got in the ring and put over any people in NXT? He has fought Seth and Roman, but they were long established stars before them. Name me one person who Triple H has built up for non-selfish reasons? 3) You really think Vince McMahon would have as his successor someone who will overhaul everything he has built and then re-build it in their own image? To quote the Miz "Really? Really?" I have seen situations where someone who is retiring or leaving doesn't pick the best person to take over from them, but the one who most shares their "vision". They will sooner hire a toadie than someone who might have some fresh ideas. So, don't be surprised if Triple H turns out to be mini-Vince McMahon once he takes over. Vince wouldn't be grooming him as the heir apparent if Triple H wasn't going to have things run the same or similar as usual. If Vince wanted a fresh thinker, Shane would be the next to run WWE. I get the feeling that Shane would have fresh, new, innovative ideas. But Vince doesn't want that. He wants what he is used to, and Triple H and Steph probably say "Yes" to all of his ideas. So, these are some things to consider next time you become a Triple H cheerleader, over his handling of NXT. If you think things will be much different once Tripper takes over, I have a bridge to sell you and there are some Nigerians who want you to send them money online.
