Triple H is certainly a veteran in the pro wrestling world and is one of the most important figures in the company’s history, being one of the mainstays of the Attitude Era. His career spanned several World Title reigns and memorable moments throughout the years. It seems he even spoke with Maven about a possible return to WWE.
Triple H is also infamous for burying fellow pro wrestlers and there are multiple instances of that taking place, even as early as his DX days. It was said that he even refused to put over D’Lo Brown during an important feud.
WWE Tough Enough season one winner Maven worked with the company from 2001-2005. His time in the company saw him winning the Hardcore Title on three separate occasions and not much else.
While speaking on That ’90s Wrestling Podcast, Maven claimed that he spoke to Triple H about returning to the company. This took place prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the talks amounted to nothing.
“Before the world was shut down before the pandemic, I actually travelled to Orlando and met with Hunter (Triple H) and with Albert (Matt Bloom) who is running the developmental down there now. And I was talking to them about maybe doing some announcing stuff.
And I did that, and I went there, on March 11 of 2020. And if you remember, in America that’s the day America shut down. So, I never want to turn my back or say, ‘No or it’ll never happen’. Because I don’t know.
I still and will always have wrestling in my blood. I still have wrestling dreams every week. I still have a dream where I’m either putting my boots on or I’m in the ring or I’m getting ready to wrestle somebody, and my love for the business is never gonna leave. I would definitely entertain any opportunity to be back in wrestling in any capacity.”
Maven has not wrestled in any capacity since 2016, after which he transitioned into working in finance. Perhaps it is too little too late when it comes to him making a return to WWE.
