Triple H is a WWE Hall of Famer and The Game for so many. He is also an incredibly influential part of what NXT was before NXT 2.0 came along. After a cardiac event last year, he is forced to retire. His name lit up social media in the process.
While speaking to Stephen A Smith from ESPN, Hunter discussed his heart problem last year in candid detail. The fourteen-time world champion explained how he caught viral pneumonia-causing an inflammation in his lungs. Things soon took a turn for the worse, and he began coughing blood, forcing him to go see a doctor. He was later diagnosed with heart failure.
Triple H firmly declared that he is never going to wrestle again, because he has a defibrillator in his chest. That medical device makes him vulnerable in case of any further damage. Hunter mentioned how he was “nosediving and sort of at the one-yard line of where you want to be for your family and your future.
In the wake of his retirement news, fans and talent alike took to Twitter to pay tribute Triple H’s iconic career. Some looked back at memorable moments that are etched in the hearts of everyone around sports entertainment.
