5 WWE Superstars who are in the company because of Triple H
- Time and again, Triple H has had a crucial hand in signing a number of the company's top names.
#4 Mike Kanellis
Mike Kanellis’ signing with WWE wasn’t necessarily the sole doing of Triple H, but again he seemingly played a key role in bringing Kanellis into the company.
Kanellis, better known by his real name of Mike Bennett, had spent a number of years with Ring of Honor, as well as 14 months with TNA prior to becoming a free agent in March of 2017. That freedom put Bennett at something of a crossroads and, with his future up in the air, ultimately led to him reaching out to Paul Heyman for some pointers on what his next move should be.
Heyman advised Bennett to get in touch with Triple H, so that’s exactly what the former TNA star did. Bennett dropped Triple H an email, and although his response wasn’t one of a concrete offer, Triple H did promise to have someone get in touch with Bennett.
Low and behold, a week or two later, Bennett got a call from a certain William Regal with news of a WWE contract offer—a call that may never have taken place had it not been for Triple H.Published 11 Sep 2017, 15:43 IST
