5 Superstars you might never see in WWE once Triple H takes over from Vince McMahon
It has been around 40 years since Vince McMahon took over WWE, after buying out the same from his father in a move that has now become a pivotal moment in professional wrestling history. Over the course of these past four decades, Vince McMahon has shed his blood, sweat, and tears to turn WWE from just another wrestling promotion among a bunch of them to a globally recognized brand that boasts a billion followers on social media.
Since a long while now, fans, as well as wrestling personalities, have commented on how Vince McMahon has lost his touch on the product. Many people claim that things will change for the better once Triple H takes over the helm. In a previous article, we discussed what changes Triple H will make once he takes over WWE and the Superstars who would benefit the most when he takes his spot on the top.
Now, let's take a look at five Superstars you might never see in WWE once Triple H becomes the boss.
#5 Rob Van Dam
After ECW folded in 2001, it was bought off by Vince McMahon. One of the biggest acquisitions from the promotion was Rob Van Dam, who arrived in WWE on July 9th, 2001. Van Dam was apparently set for a push in late 2002 and was going to win the World Heavyweight Title, but Triple H reportedly talked Vince McMahon out of going ahead with the plan.
The first Elimination Chamber match at Survivor Series saw RVD accidentally injure The Game during a spot, which didn't help his standing with Triple H. With age catching up with RVD, and Triple H's hostility towards him, one wonders whether we'll ever see RVD inside a WWE ring again.
