WWE NXT News: Since Triple H was named WWE’s new creative chief, the company’s shows have experienced a marked improvement over what the company had us used to. And, as Fightful Select recently pointed out, Hunter has been very “aggressive” from the start.
Among his first actions is the reinforcement of the main roster through a series of measures, such as a different approach for several superstars (as is the case with Ciampa), debuts (as is the case with IYO SKY ), or the return of talent recently fired from the company (as is the case with Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross or Scarlett).
However, the new creative direction of WWE continues to shuffle new names to bring the company back. Among them is that Dexter Lumis, who was released by the company on April 29. In this sense, the media adds that last week his name was discussed among senior WWE officials for his return.
Since his departure, Lumis has hardly worked in other promotions. The wrestler competed in the NWA World Heavyweight Championship match on June’s “Always Ready” show, and also participated in the company’s subsequent television tapings.
Update on a possible return of Johnny Gargano
Undoubtedly, Johnny Gargano is one of the most rumored names for his return to Triple H’s new WWE. That is why the outlet has tried to gather more information about it, being able to know that Shawn Michaels contacted the fighter shortly after the change of management in the company.
So far, it is unknown how the conversation went or what topics were discussed during it, although Fightful assures that Michaels was going to continue in contact with the former NXT Champion.
It should be remembered that Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis were part of the stable “The Way” in NXT. Joining them were Austin Theory, Indi Hartwell, and Candice LeRae.
Meanwhile, in just two weeks since being named WWE’s new chief creative officer, Triple H has been able to retain IYO SKY and rehire Dakota Kai to form a stable that Vince McMahon turned down before his retirement. Likewise, he has brought Max Dupri back as the leader of Maximum Male Models after McMahon dropped him from the group. And finally, he has re-signed Karrion Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux, who made a surprise appearance on the latest episode of SmackDown.
