Although Triple H has been more visible recently, he has yet to make a return to his WWE NXT duties.
Triple H underwent a procedure for a cardiac event in September that was reportedly very serious. In late November, he was spotted with the rest of McMahon family and other WWE executives as they were touring the new WWE Headquarters building.
Shawn Michaels, who has been running things backstage for NXT while Triple H is away, recently talked to Jim Varsallone and was asked about an update on Triple H as well as whether “The Game” has been around in person or virtually.
“No. Right now, for me, I feel like an old nanny. I’ve told him, ‘I don’t care how good you are, you stay away, get healthy, concentrate on you.’ The thing is, he put in a fabulous team here and that’s why it’s able to continue on without him because he put phenomenal people in place. I’m just the guy that gets to expedite everything and run traffic so to speak. The team he put in place was prepared for these kind of days and we want him to get healthy. He doesn’t have anything to worry about, we will be here when he gets back.”
