Welcome to this week's edition of wrestling rumors we hope are true and those we hope aren't! It's been an exciting week in the world of wrestling and as always, NXT and AEW delivered in a big way.

While RAW wasn't at its best, the show has had enough overall consistency to give fans a reason to tune in. SmackDown has been problematic on the creative side, which is a bit surprising since the roster is stacked and the WrestleMania direction involves quite a few good matches on the card.

Either way, this week isn't just about WrestleMania. There have been a lot of eventful things happening in the world of wrestling, from potential suspensions to injuries, backstage rumblings and so much more.

#6. Hope is true: Triple H 'obsessed' with a 26-year old star

One of Triple H's main jobs is to have an eye out for top talent, even if he isn't directly involved in the scouting process, he's hands-on with everything NXT and that involves working with all kinds of talent.

There's a specific superstar who Triple H not only has his eye on, but he's reportedly "obsessed" with him as well. That name is none other than the 26-year old Ilja Dragunov in NXT: UK, according to TalkSport's Alex McCarthy.

NXT: UK has been an early stage for quite a few solid prospects, with Rhea Ripley being the most recent example of a superstar finding massive success after coming through the ranks in NXT: UK.

We hope this rumor is true because WWE has a great Russian-born superstar with a lot of potential. Hopefully, he doesn't fall victim to bad creative ideas and is eased into NXT and then RAW or SmackDown.

WWE has a special talent with Dragunov.
