Triple H continues to wear many hats in WWE. If you read his bio, the man who married the boss’s daughter is the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative of WWE, as well as being the founder and senior producer of NXT. And when he isn’t doing that, he gets in the ring and shocks the world by turning on Seth Rollins, handing the Universal Heavyweight Title to Kevin Owens in the process.
To say the move to make the man who is a total of 25 titles, including the WWF World Championship on nine occasions and five World Heavyweight Championships wasn’t one of the best decisions in company history would be a crime.
As the head of talent acquisition and the driving force behind the growth of NXT, he has had a hand in bringing in some of the best talents in the business. Often he has been outspoken about not needing help from other promotions, yet the best of the best still find their way to Stamford, CT or to Orlando, plying their craft in a squared-circle owned and operated by the patriarch of professional wrestling.
He was instrumental in helping to re-sign CM Punk following the infamous pipe bomb which led to him leaving the company for the first time with the company’s title in hand and has also be instrumental in developing the Cruiserweight Championship, which has been a major boon for WWE and the business.
Along the way, he has also signed some major talents to work under the NXT and WWE brand. These are his five best signings since he became a power player behind the scenes of wrestling’s most successful promotion.
