For the longest time, Michelle Beadle was one of the more famous WWE fans in the mainstream media. She would frequently visit the live events and hang out backstage. That has come to an end, and she is blaming Triple H for it. Michelle stated that she could no longer support a company that publicly and firmly supports Floyd Mayweather, whom she labeled as a serial domestic abuser. The boxer actually had her banned from the big fight.

Triple H has to be beaming with pride backstage nowadays. His managerial style has turned NXT into quite the success. It is being said that tickets are selling extremely fast for the live events that he has been promoting. Things have gotten to the point where fans are being turned away at the door, which increases the anticipation even more for the next show. HHH has restored a lot of faith in people about the future of WWE being in good hands.

One of the reasons why Vince McMahon is starting to become a big fan of NXT is the fact that the brand was able to sell out tickets to a live event without needing to promote the matches. That means that fans are simply showing up because they support the brand in whole. WWE live events usually reveal the main event matches that will be taking place on the card. This gives Triple H a bit more leverage when it comes to backstage politics.

Success has a funny way of changing up your plans. Now that Triple H has proven that his NXT stars can draw fans to live events, the company has scrapped the plans of having them do shows at small venues that WWE normally avoids.

He also mentioned that his dream job would be working as an assistant for Vince McMahon.

With the rapid sales of tickets to events in Ohio and California, WWE is going full sail with their plans to take NXT across the country. Management has reached out to a couple of people to gauge their interest in being the live events executive. The person would be in charge of booking venues and arranging for travel.

Since they have worked together for years and have maintained a positive relationship outside the ring, the speculation is that Kevin Nash and Jeff Jarrett will be working together in some sort of capacity when GFW starts doing live events. However, that is very unlikely to happen. While it is true that Nash has constantly stated that he puts business first, the belief here is that he will remain loyal to Triple H and WWE, the company inducting him this year.

It looks like Triple H is going to be spending a lot less time at the corporate office in Stamford. WWE has announced that they are creating a new executive position and is immediately hiring.

That happens to be HHH, who is expected to be more hands on with the product now.

While the internet wrestling community has accredited the rise of NXT solely to Triple H, there are others in the company that help out with the shows. For the bigger events, Michael Hayes and other WWE officials head down to Florida to provide input and feedback. They also help out with the production of the show and advise the performers on what to do. HHH is still the main guy in charge, but he definitely is not doing it all alone.
