I know Triple H is still the COO, but with his match at “Vengeance,” you do have to question if his return to the ring will be permanent in the future.
With his match at Vengeance, he will have wrestled in two of the last three Pay-Per-Views. I do not think I am out of line to question if Triple H will go back to being a full time wrestler soon.
I once wrote an article about this before Triple H’s match against CM Punk at “Night of Champions.” I assumed he would lose to Punk and go back to being a wrestler. I of course was wrong, but perhaps I was only premature in my thinking.
The WWE insists on having Triple H be very aggressive and involved in personal rivalries. Since he is still in wrestling shape, it only makes sense that he would be able to wrestle. Does this damage his image as COO, though?
Vince McMahon was in some of the most memorable feuds of all time. His power enabled him to hire others to do his bidding for him. Triple H simply takes on all comers himself. The WWE needs to decide if they want him to be an “executive” or a wrestler.
I know in my article about Triple H’s return to the ring, I thought it could be good for a short period of time. Have Triple H put over talent to make them better in the long run. However, that does not seem to be the direction of the writers.
When CM Punk and Triple H are aligning themselves against “The Awesome Truth,” no one can win this feud. If Triple H and Punk come out victorious, it buries Truth and Miz. If Awesome Truth wins, Punk gets buried.
Permanent or not, I see Triple H involved in matches for the next few months. Whether he will still be COO is unknown, but he is too far in to pull out of wrestling matches for now.
