So Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff are put in charge to turn creative and ratings around: why wasn't the job given to Triple H? He's overseen NXT which has been constantly successful at creating good stories and characters and is a brand beloved by fans. Is NXT seen as being that much less (or not seen at all), or is Triple H again the smartest man in wrestling by staying the hell away from the main shows?
I think HHH would have preferred the money, honestly. The whole deal is kind of a slap in the face to him, but what they want is a public face with a name from 20 years ago that can be trotted out to FOX executives. Apparently this is just the latest in a series of differences between Hunter and Vince, too.
