-Booking underutilized talent better (Balor, Owens, Nakamura, Zayn, Cesaro etc.)
-Changing Raw to 2 hours
These all sound great but as long as Vince is alive I can't see him letting HHH change too much. I'd argue Vince would probably strongly dislike all of the above changes, and I have a bad feeling that HHH will continue to book similar to Vince and not make too many changes to the product, just to please Vince.
So my questions are; Will HHH have full control of booking on all brands and PPVs? And realistically, what major changes (if any) will Vince let HHH make once his concentration switches to his XFL project?
You and I have different opinions of what underutilised is. Balor and Owens were pushed to the moon from day one. Nakamura has already got alot of huge wins in under a year and will be World Champ at Mania. Cesaro and Zayn are always featured prominently.
You want to talk underutilised look at Rusev, Ryder, Dillinger, etc. guys who cant even get on TV.
People want to believe HHH is some savoir because he's been pushing Indy guys so the smark fanbase will finally like him, but he's no savoir. HHH on top means HHH constantly in the Main Event at every big PPPV. HHH in charge means that exclusively only HHH's hand picked pets ever get pushed. HHH is worse than Vince is in regards to who he lets succeed. You have to be a HHH pet to get HHH to push you, NXT is a huge example of this. But at least Vince will still push a guy who he might not have picked.
HHH in charge is just Indy mania come to the WWE, but it wont be this fantasty wonderland, it'll be a select few chosen Indy guys dominating everything while anyone and everyone who gets organically over is just a jobber. Look at the likes of Becky, Iconic Duo, Dillinger in NXT for examples of this.
