In June, Vince McMahon abruptly announced his retirement amid the scandals involving the now-former WWE CEO and Chairman using company funds to pay off women he propositioned and allegedly had affairs with. The news rocked the wrestling world. Since then, Triple H has taken over as Head of Creative in WWE. Under Triple H, the differences in both Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown have been notable and praised by many.
Rhea Ripley is the latest WWE Superstar to share how pleased she has been with the changes under Triple H. She said,
“I feel like it’s definitely family-ish, like I feel like it’s NXT for me personally really. I don’t know how other people feel but for me it feels like that NXT environment which I loved so much while being there. Like, I have all my friends back, the ones that have moved up and the ones that have come back. And I’m just I’m loving every single second of it. It just it feels so warm, and I feel more comfortable and confident in myself in a way, because I know that Triple H knows exactly who I am. Because he helped build me into the Rhea Ripley that you see today.”
