6 wrestling rumors we hope are true & 6 we hope aren't: Triple H 'obsessed' with surprising Superstar, WWE planning massive dream match for Brock Lesnar?
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.
