A new rumor suggests that Vince McMahon and Triple H have very different viewpoints about the company’s NXT talent. Brad Shepard cited his source on the “Oh You Didn’t Know” podcast and said that while Triple H is unsurprisingly a supporter of the new call-ups in Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black and Ricochet, McMahon is coming in as a bit more of a skeptic.
“I was told that there is a weird dynamic at play where Triple H hypes the guy and Vince tries to prove him wrong,” Shepard said. “In this case, Vince wanted to put the NXT call-ups in a hole and test them to see if they could climb out of it. So this is the metaphorical Vince throwing them in the deep end of the swimming pool and seeing if they’ll drown or come up for air.”
All four men competed both on RAW and SmackDown Live!, having won their matches on both shows. Triple H wasn’t in the know about the call-ups, according to a report on Wednesday. (h/t – RingSideNews)
