In 2013, Triple H was given even more power. He was now VP of Talent, Live events, and Creative. Essentially, he now has control of every aspect of WWE programming. He hires the performers, decides where live shows will be held, and as VP of Creative, decides what direction to take storylines. It’s not a bad thing. If the man has proved anything over the last 5 to 6 years, it’s that the job isn’t too much for him. He’s proved he can take the WWE to unprecedented heights. He’s made some big mistakes as an executive. Let’s face it, forcing CM Punk out of the company is inexcusable, and going over on Sting in his only WrestleMania match is ego-maniacal, but if that’s the bad that comes along with all the good, then it’s worth it. We all forget that the reason Sting was even in WWE was because of Triple H, or that he’s the one who orchestrated the Ultimate Warrior‘s return to the company. What about saving WrestleMania 31’s main event by having Seth Rollins cash in Money in the Bank? What about having Rollins turn on The Shield? What about everybody’s favorite wrestler (including me), AJ Styles? Have we already forgotten the days when we used to sit around and wish AJ would get a shot to step inside a WWE ring and blow people’s minds? Triple H brought him to us. Not only that, but he let him be “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, not some cheap WWE re-brand. As if all that wasn’t enough, he debuted AJ in the Royal Rumble match! It’s one of the best debuts in WWE history. All thanks to “The Game.”
