After watching this past Monday's Raw, I must say that I was a bit shocked. And no, I'm not talking about the mysterious ending that resulted in Vince McMahon being carted off on a stretcher.
While I was right about a few things—Kennedy to Smackdown, Punk away from ECW, Umaga to Smackdown—I was wrong about one major thing: Triple H got moved to Smackdown.
Now, let me clear something up. I don't claim to know all. I go based off of information and history. Both those things told me Triple H wasn't going anywhere. But in the aftermath, it all makes more sense.
Triple H may very well be on Smackdown for good, and it very likely has to do with his wife, Stephanie McMahon.
Stephanie is currently pregnant with the couple's second child. When she returns to the road, she will have the kids with her. Stephanie attends all the Tuesday tapings for Smackdown and usually only gets to see Hunter three times per week. His move to Smackdown could result in him being to see his family up to six times per week. (Credit: lordsofpain.net)
Not to mention, Smackdown will be moving to MyNetworkTV soon and will need a big star to help that transition. Triple H is just that star.
This news also brings me sort of a chuckle, as it is rumored that many on Raw hope he stays away. The feeling is that with Triple H on Smackdown, other guys will have a chance to break out and make a name for themselves.
Obviously this means that Smackdown's younger stars will be buried by Triple H and the boss' daughter.
But remember, nothing is impossible. This isn't the first time Triple H has been drafted to Smackdown.
So for now, I will eat my crow and top it with a bit of spice.
