The news of Vince McMahon’s withdrawal left everyone speechless, marking the beginning of a new era. The now former WWE Chairman was caught in the eye of the storm a few weeks ago when it emerged that he had given $3 million to a former employee with whom he had had an extramarital affair.
His role was taken over by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. The 14-time world champion announced his retirement from wrestling just before WrestleMania 38, but no one expected him to be promoted in such a short amount of time.
The Game appeared briefly at the 'Showcase of the Immortals', greeting the WWE Universe and depositing his boots in the middle of the ring. In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Jimmy Hart had nice words for HHH and wished him success in this new guise.
Jimmy Hart praises Triple H
"Triple H will be able to count on Stephanie's help and vice versa, which is not a secondary detail" - began Jimmy Hart. “Stephanie knows this business very well and has learned a lot from her father of her Vince.
Her experience will be crucial in the coming months, as WWE will be called upon to reorganize. As I always say, two sticks are harder to break than one. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon will do extraordinary things together,” added Hart.
Within his podcast, Eric Bischoff commented on the recent shocks: “Vince's retirement has left everyone in awe. I think they'll pick up where Vince left off. As time goes by, there will be a different approach that will make the shows much smoother.
Over the course of 60-90 days, you should start to see some small but important changes. There will be nothing drastic, but the coherence that is missing at this moment will return. Triple H has taken over the creative direction of WWE and plans to move right away.
I'm really curious." Multi-time world champion Triple H recently commented on his health following a cardiac event he suffered last year. "I feel great. A glitch in the road, luckily for me it was caught, right? It took a little bit to get past it, to get over it, but I'm past it and over it.
I've got a clean bill of health. I'm 100%. I'm very aware of all of it, I'm very aware of really what is important in your life".
