That night pure and absolute magic was done.
Wishing Andrade the best of luck after his release. A truly special talent with a bright future ahead of him. “

We have that team.

Triple H leaks WWE firing after ‘burying’ a diva
Triple H has fired a WWE employee for sending a garbage bag to Mick James after his shot.
Triple H said: “Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talents received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE. “
Triple H praised Damian Priest on ESPN’s Cheap Heat podcast, “I looked at Damian Priest, I’ve seen him for years and I was like ‘man, this guy is, he’s talented. Everything I know and hear about him, he’s positive in all levels. Then he came to work with us, I remember, at a slightly older age, right, but I was like ‘Man, this kid can fix everything.’
But when I met him and started working with him, I thought, ‘Man, he’s like a sponge,’ no one just ever helped him get where he needed to be. Once the lightbulb started beeping for him, I thought, “This is a game changer for him.” He’s a little older, but he’s in good shape. He finally has the opportunity to put all those pieces together because he was not afraid of change or challenge. “
