WWE held their first episode of SmackDown after WrestleMania, and they had a lot to bring to the table for the blue brand. During the second hour of the show, Triple H made his way to the ring to address the WWE Universe once again.
This is a big announcement for WWE, especially Triple H. His father-in-law is back in WWE and running creative again. The UFC and WWE are set to merge, and that could cause any number of changes. That didn’t stop The Game from making his way to the ring on SmackDown this week.
Triple H welcomed fans to SmackDown, even though the show was in its second hour already. He spoke about WrestleMania and boasted about how great the turnout and revenue was for the event. He touted nearly 1 billion views for WrestleMania, but now they’re talking about the future of WWE.
After asking, “Are you ready?” Triple H received the reply that he was expecting. Then Triple H revealed that the WWE Draft is coming up in just a few weeks, with every single Superstar eligible for the draft.
When it is all said and done, this year’s Draft will truly change the game.”
