Many consider Triple H a legend in the pro wrestling world and is one of the most important figures in the company’s history. He was an integral part of the Attitude Era. His career spanned several World Title reigns and memorable moments throughout the years.
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.
He was also the biggest reason behind NXT’s growth over the past few years, as many fans consider the older version of NXT his brainchild. While speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, former WWE Superstar Jaxson Ryker recalled the time Triple H jokingly told him, Steve Cutler, and Wesley Blake that they were going to be fired before getting called up to the main roster.
“He just goes, ‘Hey, so listen, tonight we’re gonna just kind of write you guys off TV.’ You could hear this deathly sigh of, ‘Oh God, we are gonna get fired.’ Then Triple H just goes, ‘It’s because you guys are going to SmackDown.’ We were all like, ‘Come on, man!’ He sorta got us us but then he really got us with the handshake.”
It was also said that Triple H is unlikely to ever wrestle again. Triple H’s cardiac event was also said to have been very, very, very serious. We will have to wait and see when The King Of Kings will make his return to the company as it is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
