I’m told Sean “X-Pac” Waltman has been getting more involved with WWE lately. One observer tells me it’s mainly Hunter throwing his buddy a bone to help him out.
While it’s believed Waltman has been seeking some type of job in WWE’s developmental system, I’m told the company has been reluctant to offer him a full-time position. Sean is a guy that’s well-liked and respected and has been rewarded with temporary work such as heading up WWE-affiliated training sessions. He recently filmed material for the upcoming WWE Network. However, Waltman’s downside has been dependability as I was told there was a specific incident where he failed to show up for a prior commitment with the company.
Furthermore, there is a certain image associated with Waltman’s behavior/personality that worries some that hiring him could result in negative publicity. One person with knowledge of the office’s thinking told me there are some higher-ups that think employing him might not end well. This has been why Waltman has been kept around but at a distance where there is no formal affiliation. Triple H wants to help out his friend but the company wants to be protected at the same time.
