Dave Meltzer clarified what Levesque apparently meant when he said last month he was back.

Nearly a month ago, Paul "Triple H" Levesque returned to the WWE Performance Center and told people there "I'm back," which some took to mean he was back involved with the NXT brand.

In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that apparently isn't the case.

Meltzer said that it appears Levesque meant he was back working in the WWE offices as he hasn't done anything directly with the old black and gold brand since making that statement. He hasn't been at Tuesday night shows as everything is still being run by Shawn Michaels and a small creative staff.

According to the late-June reports, Levesque said that he was in Orlando for business reasons and couldn't say why at that time. He was previously in charge of NXT before the 2.0 rebrand last September.

With a lesser workload, Levesque returned to the office in March after suffering a major cardiac event last year that nearly killed him. He also announced he was retiring from in-ring action due to his heart issues.

Levesque has been one of the faces of WWE's NIL program, designed to recruit college athletes, and will be on hand for their next tryout during SummerSlam week in Nashville, Tennessee.
