The general feeling within WWE that Triple H is going to be winding down his in-ring career this year and will be focusing more on the company’s corporate operations. Aside from starring in his own WWE Studios project (The Chaperone), Triple H has been learning the ins and outs of WWE’s marketing division as of late.
On a related note, it’s said that Stephanie McMahon is traveling less these days as she’s taking care of their three daughters at home. Stephanie is still on call but isn’t in the office as much and isn’t attending WWE tapings as frequently as last year. SmackDown writer Michael Hayes and RAW’s Brian Gewirtz have assumed creative power behind the scenes, with Stephanie scaling back her duties to raise her young children.
