WWE: Triple H vs. Vince McMahon, The Future of WWE
Alright, now in every event in wrestling up until now, there is a war in the industry, the late 70s to early 90s, it was WWF vs. the Territories, in the mid-90s to early 2000s, it was the Monday Night War, Bret and Shawn, and Russo and Bischoff, etc.
Now, it’s Triple H vs. Vince McMahon. The prize: WWE’s Future.
Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, is being groomed to take Vince’s place as the owner of WWE, taking responsibility with roles such as Talent Relations, Creative, and running the developmental NXT and Performance Center.
Vince, reportedly has been changing his mind at the last minute and breaking promises Triple H made with superstars who he wanted to get pushed, and having Vince have the final say when it comes to creative was being shown on TV recently.
Okay, granted that wasn’t entirely Vince’s fault, Titus begged to have a run as a Heel, and to put it mildly: It’s been a complete and utter failure, it started off promising but ended horrible.
The other major problem was the fact, there was no seeds of tension in the team, it just happened out of nowhere, and granted, some will say that’s the best way to do something like that, but honestly, it made no sense, it popped out of nowhere, and also, would’ve have made more sense to like go their separate ways, and if the singles run didn’t work out, they could get back together.
What’s Titus and Young doing now: well Titus has been jobbing, while Young is recovering from a torn ACL.
Triple H’s NXT
Down in NXT, WWE’s Developmental Center, is Triple H’s personal project to craft and develop future stars that will eventually make it to the main roster.
But apparently, most of the guys that have been called up this year, Vince doesn’t like any of them.
He view the Paige Experiment as a failure despite the Audience getting behind her, Rusev and Lana are unknown, though he might have reason to axe them off after what happened at Battleground, Adam Rose for not getting the audience behind him, even though it takes time to get the audience to warm up to him, which was just recently starting to happen, and Bo Dallas, it’s because he’s getting cheered…
When did we lose are right to cheer or boo who we want?
Tyson Kidd, people can say so far has had his career peak back in 2010, but since he’s been down in NXT, he appears to thrive more than he ever did in Vince’s WWE.
Triple H has been attempting to rebuild the Tag Team Division and by the time Prime Time Players broke up, this was the amount of Teams at that time:
- Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins (The Shield)
- Erick Rowan and Luke Harper (The Wyatt Family)
- The Usos
- Prime Time Players
- The Rhodes Brothers
- The New Age Outlaws
- Los Matadores
- The Real Americans
And as of Now:
- RybAxel (Dissention showed signs on 7/25 Smackdown)
- Erick Rowan and Luke Harper
- The Usos
- The Rhodes Brothers
- Los Matadores (Though one member is out of action due to injury)
- Big E and Kingston (Apparently)
- Salter and Gator (Which might just last a solid month at the most)
It’s hard to figure out where everything went wrong, but part of me has the feeling Vince didn’t seem to embrace Triple H’s plans, with his last minute decisions.
Well, at least Vince hasn’t made a segment where a serious Face is…
Oh yeah, that happened…
As this war continues it appears backstage has a division between Triple H and Vince McMahon.

|Vince McMahon Guys (In-Theory)
The subject of Phil Brooks, famously known as CM Punk, shows the tension regarding Triple H and Vince McMahon.
Reportedly, Triple H was upset with Punk over his Unwillingness to Work a Program with Him, and seeing him a big deal, though chances are Triple H may be in the wrong since reports were later come out that he had numerous injury issues, burnt out, and was given broken promises since reportedly, he was booked to win Royal Rumble and main event WrestleMania 30, before Batista returned.
Stephanie, well, She hates CM Punk, so let’s leave it at that.
But this doesn’t make Vince right either, sure, he was the better solution to handle the CM Punk situation but in the Triple H report, backstage vibe had turned on Punk and no longer supported Vince in this issue.
When 11 Superstars were released from their contracts to cut costs, Backstage was upset Punk wasn’t one of them, since Punk’s pay was more than what undercard stars make in three to four years and it was also said Vince may renew Punk’s contract to keep him from going somewhere else despite Punk saying he was retired. Luckily, Vince managed to be talked some sense and not renew the contract, Punk is now a free agent, but has said he will never ever return to the square circle (Though he seemed to have forgotten one thing the business never changes with, Never say never).
Not really difficult to explain: Triple H uses it, Vince ignores it, and the only thing I can say is Triple H has done a great job using the IWC to better the product.
The remainder of 2014 and possible up to WrestleMania 31 will show the changing product of WWE.
Vince Sr. is the Past. Vince McMahon is the Present. Triple H is the Future of WWE
And that is what’s best for business.
