Professional wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley who is a former three times WWE World Champion recently talked about Triple H becoming the Head of Creative of WWE and discussed all the changes he brought into the promotion.
Recently Mr McMahon announced his retirement from WWE after running the promotions strongly for so many years. But during the later days, the promotion was getting a little stale. Fans were having complaints about repetitive products, weak storylines and other things. But nothing was improving, sadly.
Mick Foley Reflects On The Changes Triple H Brought In WWE
After Triple H took over WWE, he started to deliver better matches and better storylines, something that was missing from WWE for quite a long time. In every weekly show there is at least one pay per view standard match, which is enough to tune into SmackDown or RAW every week.
But the only thing that is Triple H failing to deliver is to produce better World championship feuds, and we cannot blame him for that. It is reported that Mr McMahon requested him not to take the world title away from Roman Reigns at least before WrestleMania 39, and as long as he is champion he will not be a regular. We seriously hope WWE gets better after WrestleMania 39.
Mick Foley who is a former three times WWE World Champion recently spoke on his Foley is Pod where he talked about Triple H becoming the Head of Creative of WWE and discussed all the changes he brought into the promotion. He said;
“What I’m seeing is that the talent is getting a second chance. The cream is rising to the top. I think there is more of a sense that you’re playing to win instead of playing not to lose which is really important.
“I think mistakes are accepted as an unavoidable byproduct of growth, and people are not under the same pressure to be perfect all the time which means you’re nowhere close to perfect any of the time. I would say the best compliment I can give the new Hunter regime is that I don’t think WWE has that problem, and that was the biggest problem I saw in the last few years.”
“I love Vince McMahon. I can’t think of a time and place where I could have been better utilized. There’s so many reasons why my push could have been shortened, not as strong, or forgotten, and there is no way you and I are having this conversation without Vince, with a little help from Bruce and J.R. and The Undertaker.
“I don’t think you can ever underestimate the power of The Undertaker wanting to do business, and even some other guys on the way out like Kevin Nash saying, ‘The guy is money.’ Shawn Michaels liked me immediately. So I had some big proponents. Bret Hart liked working with me. So all the top guys I worked with enjoyed it.”
“To listen to Bruce who told him, ‘Hey, this guy has a more interesting story than the fictional portrait that you guys have created’, and that’s where the groundbreaking interviews with Jim Ross came in. So all of that, ultimately, was up to Vince.”
“I think it’s a really good thing for WWE. People are excited. I feel for Mr. McMahon because business was so much a part of his life. I hope he has some things, and he does have grandchildren and some things that are meaningful, but he can still make a huge impact in other ways. I give Triple H an ‘A’ and we’ll see in the following few months if that becomes an ‘A+’”
