It was previously reported that Triple H had to miss last week’s Raw and NXT. WWE Hall of Famers “Road Dogg” Brian James and Shawn Michaels were in charge of NXT as a result.
Leon Ruff, Isiah “Swerve” Scott, Timothy Thatcher, Alexander Wolfe, Johnny Gargano, and Candice LeRae were not backstage at the show. This came at a time where WWE NXT dealt with a COVID-19 outbreak.
“The Game” was reportedly in quarantine after the latest COVID-19 outbreak and at the time, it was noted his situation was being kept secretive. It was never reported he had COVID-19. It appears that was just a precaution.
Dave Meltzer noted during today’s episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that Triple H was backstage at Wednesday’s NXT episode.
“By the way, a lot of the people that were gone last week were back this week including Paul Levesque backstage. He was running the show this week. He’s back, so that’s good.”
