Triple H believes Malcolm Bivens has found his man in Tyler Rust.
Bivens was signed by WWE in March 2019 and, aside from a brief run managing Rinku Singh and Saurav Gurjar, hasn't been featured much on television. That has changed over the last month as Bivens has taken Tyler Rust as his client.
Triple H thinks Bivens has had a strategy this whole time and is now executing things.
"I believe he does. Malcolm Bivens has been here for a while. Some people would say he's been here and hasn't been on the show and has been sitting back. I tend to believe he's been looking for the right person. He's a long game player and not looking for someone he can capitalize on and then move on to someone else. He's not looking for the short run, he's looking for someone who can be long-term and it's why he started with Rust. He sees someone who can be a generational talent that five-years from now, you're going, 'I remember when he first came in and worked with Tommaso Ciampa. I knew then.' I've seen him watching people and analyze their gameplan and figure out their long-term strategy. They've both made a very wise pick," said Triple H on The Bump.
Rust took former NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa to the limit on the December 16 episode of NXT. Triple H had praise for Rust after the bout on social media. You can find his comments by clicking here.
