Following his appointment as WWE creative director, Triple H has taken two terms off of Vince McMahon’s list of forbidden phrases. Following the resignation of former chairman McMahon, his father-in-law, after 40 years in the position, the legendary wrestler stepped into the position. By removing the terms that the previous chairman had blacklisted, Triple H has already begun making adjustments to the wrestling company in his new role. The terms on the prohibited list are those that competitors, pundits, and broadcasters are not permitted to use while events are being aired.

But once the creative director withdrew them from the list after his hiring, two of these words—”wrestler” and “wrestling”—have now been approved. Even though Triple H quickly undid some of McMahon’s efforts, he had nothing but love for the former boss, saying that the 76-year-old has left a “massive” void to be filled.

With Triple h returned to business, he made an absolute blast in the WWE Smackdown episode this week. We could see that Karrion Kross has returned with a vengeance.

Triple H have high praises for Vince McMahon

He said the following on the Impaulsive Podcast: “I’ll say this about Vince, massive shoes that I couldn’t even dream of beginning to think I could fill. The gap there in this moment is massive but the opportunity to take it in a direction that it’s never gone before is massive. I’m thrilled for that opportunity. We have an unbelievable team. It’s never going to be one person, one person can’t even begin to fill his shoes. It’s going to take an entire team of people to jump in those shoes because without him, there’s none of this.”

As the former wrestler continued to compliment Vince’s leadership, he added: “The vision to take this tiny, little thing happening in bars to this big global sensation like nothing else. WrestleMania is one of the most valuable sports franchises on the planet.”

Meeting with Logan Paul

On Logan Paul’s podcast, Triple H made an appearance. Logan Paul, who also has a popular YouTube channel, recently entered the WWE after competing as a boxer. The creative director continued by describing what it’s like to work with celebrities on the promotion: “I can tell you, over the years a million celebrities have come up to us and said, ‘I want to be a WWE Superstar, I want to do it so bad.’ That all sounds great on paper. First time they hit the mat, they’re like ‘yeah, so I was thinking maybe I could help with commentary or I could do something else because that s**t hurts.'” Paul though has seemingly has proven what it takes after recently defeating his partner-turned-rival The Miz at Summerslam last weekend.”
