Triple H Joining Team NXT?
Triple H has become the face of NXT over the last few years, and rumors suggest he could be a surprise member of Team NXT at Survivor Series.
According to Wrestle Votes (h/t WrestlingInc.com), WWE Creative members have been pushing for the brand's founder to be part of the 5-on-5-on-5 men's elimination match, but the idea was met with mixed reactions from people behind the scenes.
One of the people who isn’t on board for the idea is Triple H himself. During a recent WarGames III media call, he said he had no interest in wrestling at Survivor Series. He added that he would fight “vigorously” to stay off the card.
The Game is clearly thinking about someone else besides himself here. The event is about the younger stars trying to establish themselves with the main roster crowd, rather than an older Superstar trying to take the spotlight.
It would be a waste if Triple H took a spot on Team NXT. Instead, WWE Creative should have Kevin Owens be the deciding factor and the surprise member of the yellow-and-black brand's squad.
Goldberg Returning Soon?
Survivor Series has been known over the years for surprise returns and epic moments, and the WWE Universe will be wondering what the company could have in its bag of tricks for Sunday.
The twist could be a Goldberg return to set up another match.
According to Sports Illustrated, the 52-year-old was not satisfied with his SummerSlam win over Dolph Ziggler and believes he will return to in-ring action for WWE. While he doesn't know when, he was adamant he would be back.
With a history at Survivor Series—he returned in 2016 to beat Brock Lesnar—Goldberg could make his triumphant return to help Team SmackDown or Raw beat longtime rival Triple H and Team NXT.
After back-to-back forgettable matches against Undertaker in Saudi Arabi and Ziggler at SummerSlam, the veteran will be looking for redemption. With the added bonus of trying to go out with a memorable bout, the former WCW champion should return and begin setting up a program that culminates in a fight at WrestleMania 36.
One last time, Goldberg should go out on his back and put over a top talent like Roman Reigns or Drew McIntyre.
