Vince McMahon is apparently stepping away from his role on 205 Live so Triple H can now man the helm of the struggling product.
According to PWInsider, this actually went down last week, as the company is attempting a soft-reboot of sorts by having a Cruiserweight Championship Tournament and debuting a new division general manager in Drake Maverick.
The 205 Live product has not exactly set the world on fire. The apparent hope here is that Triple H’s focus on in-ring quality, as opposed to McMahon’s endearing love for character-focused television, will help change that.
The entire cruiserweight division is in a weird spot. Not given enough time on Monday Night Raw to help give fans a reason to be emotionally invested, the 205 Live product was meant to change that, but it appears as though few people have been watching.
Triple H, who is often championed by the Internet Wrestling Community as a man of the people, is usually given credit as the person who has helped NXT become the monster it has become.
For fans of watching talented wrestlers do crazy athletic things inside the fame squared-circle, this change couldn’t have come soon enough. Only time will tell, however, if it is enough to salvage the promising stable of wrestlers who are otherwise floating adrift.
