These first six months of 2022 have given WWE fans several twists, for better or for worse. The farewell of Triple H was a very sad event for everyone, even if it was not a bolt from the blue. Undergoing a delicate heart surgery in September 2021, HHH went through a lengthy rehabilitation that caused him to abandon the desire to return to the ring.
In addition to being a great performer, The Game also lent a hand backstage, taking away various satisfactions. Suffice it to say that Hunter was the creator of the 'NXT miracle', making the 'Black and Gold' brand a great alternative to the Raw and SmackDown shows.

Speaking on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Rollins recalled how NXT founder Triple H took exception to his backstage behavior at the time. “Terry is very old school in the sense that he thinks a certain way works, and part of that ideology is sort of shunning what is up and coming instead of embracing it," said Rollins.
"And I was always like, ‘Hey, the business is changing. You’ve gotta go with it. If you go against it, it’s not gonna help.’ I would just challenge him in little ways every day to the point where I was insubordinate, and Hunter [Triple H] took me aside and was like, ‘Look, I don’t see anything special in you...."
