WWE underwent a drastic change in management with Vince McMahon’s retirement last month. His daughter Stephanie McMahon and WWE President Nick Khan have assumed control as Co-CEOs and WWE E.V.P Triple H has taken over the reins as Head of Creative. In a short span of time, The Game brought noticeable changes in the WWE product highly appreciated by fans and critics, indicating the betterment of weekly television shows, RAW and Smackdown.
Fans were thrilled to see many former WWE Superstars re-signed by Triple H like Hit Row, Dexter Lumis, Karrion Kross, and Scarlett Bordeaux. With the door to new opportunities wide open under Triple H’s reign, here are the Top 5 picks among the active WWE roster who can thrive in the new era of WWE:
1. Triple H enjoys Former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens’ work

The Prizefighter built his legacy in the WWE under Triple H’s guidance from day one, who pushed Kevin Owens to the moon in 2016 helping KO win his first-ever WWE Universal Championship.
But for quite a while, Owens has found himself lost in the shuffle only being featured in upper mid-card feuds and not winning any championship for the last 5 years. With Triple H in charge, this could be KO’s road to redemption to shine under the new bright lights of WWE.
2. Triple H may push Reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther
The reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther’s redefined image and amazing championship reign brought prestige back to the workhorse title even under the former management and this could surely mean that even better opportunities await the former Ring General with Triple H overlooking the WWE landscape now.
3. Dexter Lumis

The unorthodox Superstar made his return to WWE on Monday Night RAW two weeks ago in a series of chaos-filled segments gaining a lot of attention from the WWE universe without even stepping back inside the squared circle.
He already proved his worth back in NXT at the time Triple H was in charge, so it would be fitting to see Indi Hartwell’s maniac husband thrive once again on the main roster in his second run with the company.
4. Cody Rhodes
The American Nightmare Cody Rhodes, currently out of action due to injury was already slated to be on the top of the WWE mountain ever since he returned at WrestleMania 38.
His ascension to the main event could now be even relatively easier with the creative freedom and change in behind-the-scenes culture under Triple H’s watch, somebody Rhodes claimed to have real-life heat with, mocking him on various occasions during his time away from the WWE.
5. Triple H is a fan of Former WWE NXT Champion Karrion Kross
A main event caliber Superstar whose return was formalized by Triple H himself, Karrion Kross finally has the opportunity to reach his full potential in his second coming in the WWE, something the fans expected would happen when he was first called up to the main roster back in 2021.
Upon his comeback, Kross and his wife Scarlett were quickly inserted into the Undisputed WWE Universal title picture hinting that Triple H already has big plans for the monumental Superstar that would make him a Bonafide main event player in the WWE.
