Triple H’s relationship with Lemmy from Motorhead is well-known. The famous metal band performed The Game’s WWE entrances which led to a relationship between Triple H and the legendary frontman.
Steve Austin recently told a story during his podcast about a gift he picked up for Triple H over a year before he had a chance to present it to him. He ran across a photographer’s image of Triple H with Motorhead. It was framed and Austin thought Triple H just had to have it.
The Rattlesnake waited for the perfect opportunity to present this picture to Triple H. He didn’t want to risk having it damaged in the mail, so he had to deliver it personally. Then the perfect opportunity recently presented itself.
“So I picked that picture up, Kristin and I picked it up and put it on the Jeep and it has been sitting in my house for over a year. I didn’t want to mail it. I didn’t want it to break. I didn’t want it to get crushed. When WWE was in town, I was out of town. I thought I was just going to take it to the Staples Center, but I never had a way to get it to Triple H. So finally, when I was going to go to [Madison Square Garden], I said, ‘this is my chance to take him this picture and hand it to him personally.’ So I took it to him and I said, ‘hey man, I found this about a year ago at this meeting and for some reason, I just knew that you had to have it.’ And he was just blown away by it. He absolutely loved it. You know, Triple H is a very reserved guy. I didn’t know what he was going to think. And it turns out, all these years later, at 2005, he introduced them at that concert that night! Yes [at The Wiltern], yes, [in Los Angeles, California], he was there announcing them on stage before they made their entrance! Yeah, so that picture was destined to end up in his hands!”
This photograph of the first night Triple H met Motorhead had to mean a lot to him. It was also pretty cool to hear Austin tell this story which provided us a look inside the friendship of these two pro wrestling legends.
