Triple H literally handing Kevin Owens the WWE Universal Championship in storyline mirrors "The Game's" real-life opinion of Owens. Triple H has been high on Owens since his arrival in NXT.
There is often talk of Vince McMahon's relationships and bonds with certain Superstars over the years. Such as Shawn Michaels,
Hulk Hogan, and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin but now we catch a glimpse into Triple H's personal backstage relationships.
Kevin Owens is far from the Superstar of the past. Never has the face of the company looked so disheveled. The body of WWE sporting a visible gut. However, this is Owens and this is the new look of WWE.
Triple can obviously look past "tradition" and keep an eye towards the future of the company.
