For years NXT was thought of as Triple H’s baby, but the brand has been going through some major changes ever since it was relaunched as NXT 2.0 last year, and this week some key figures such as William Regal, Road Dogg and Samoa Joe were released from the company.

Wade Keller recently discussed the changes on the PWTorch Podcast, and he noted that Triple H was building a team that he planned to take with him to the main roster.

“I’ve talked with people who had said Triple H was building his team that he would bring with him to the main roster. And if his day came to run the main roster he wanted his group of people. At some point, it was thought that it would include William Regal and Gabe Sapolsky and Road Dogg and they’re gone.”

In regards to Triple H’s reaction to the recent cuts, Keller noted that it sounds like the former WWE Champion is “bummed out.”

“NXT just isn’t what it once was. I’ve heard just a little about Triple H’s reaction to all of this and nothing super reportable other than it sounds like he’s bummed out.”

As of this writing Triple H has yet to make any public comments in response to the recent releases. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
