— He currently does not have a lot to do with WWE‘s creative process, but has been in charge of running a few WWE shows.

— Consistent with what’s been repoted recently, Triple H said that father-in-law Vince McMahon has been pushing him to take a bigger role in WWE‘s front office, “to learn the other side of the business.” He is at the WWE office in Stanford for the majority of the week and attends many of WWE‘s televised shows.

— Hunter also revealed details on how he injured his biceps, which has kept him out of action for months. His doctors initially believed it was nerve damage related to a neck injury. The injury occurred during a light workout, just weeks into filming a movie for WWE. WWE doctor Dr. James Andrews looked at the injured arm and said he could not finish shooting hte movie without having surgery first.
