When WWE rebanded NXT as NXT 2.0, the company made various changes to the show from upgrading the production for it as well as making the shift from using experienced smaller wrestlers to younger and taller wrestlers.
Also, it was reported Vince McMahon, Bruce Prichard, and Kevin Dunn was expected to oversee the big picture things on the show. However, the usual crew would still be handling the day-to-day operations.
After Triple H had a serious cardiac event, he has taken a step back from the company to focus on his health and Shawn Michaels has been running things backstage.
This is something the WWE Hall of Famer talked about in an interview with TV Insider. He noted that he started out working three days a week and now he’s working seven days a week.
“People out there thinking it’s all Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard type of production. They just are the ones who gave us the direction of what it is they wanted from NXT going into the future. It is still all the team Hunter [Triple H] put in place doing it here.”
He continued by stating he loves learning the different aspects of WWE. He said he has a greater appreciation for everything Triple H took on and now understands how you can not return a text when you get it and he’s never had so many emails before taking on this role. He called it an honor to step in for his friend.
