WWE has undergone change in the past few years unlike anything it has ever experienced before. For the first time in its history, there isn’t a McMahon calling any of the shots. That’s due to Vince McMahon resigning from the TKO board last month following the filing of a lawsuit accusing him of some incredible heinous act. McMahon initially retired in 2022, at which point Triple H was made head of creative, and that might be where WWE has changed most since.

Too Calm

Despite learning from his father-in-law, Triple H demonstrated through his work in NXT that he does things differently. The Game is now exacting his NXT mantra on the main roster, and The Undertaker doesn’t appear to be entirely sold on his philosophy. Speaking on his Six Feet Under podcast (H/T to Fightful for the transcription), The Deadman suggested things might be a little too calm in WWE under Triple H.

I haven’t been around a whole lot, but I’ve been around enough, and I know him well enough, and I can just tell it’s such a chill vibe. For me, I almost don’t like it because it’s almost too calm… This is just me on the outside looking in, it’s like they don’t care enough. It’s not that. It’s just the atmosphere

There’s no question it would have been more chaotic backstage in WWE when The Undertaker was around more. Right up until the end of the McMahon era, there were reports of the former chairman tearing up the script for a show hours before it was about to go live and rewriting the whole thing from scratch. If that doesn’t happen anymore, then you have to think that’s a good thing.

Better Place To Work

It also sounds like wrestling locker rooms are much nicer places to be than they were years ago. No clicks, no throwing people out of locker rooms, and hopefully no punishing someone because they forgot to shake a certain person’s hand. It’s understandable that The Undertaker might find it jarring to walk into a place he worked for 30 years and it be entirely different, but a lot of the time, particularly in wrestling, the good old days some long for weren’t really all that good at all.

That’s not to suggest WWE is in a better place now than it has ever been before. While it might have been chaos backstage, clearly that chaos bred success during certain eras of WWE’s history. If the company can continue to grow – and a $5 billion Netflix deal suggests that it can – while also making the locker room a calm, nice place to be, then that has to be considered a win across the board.
