Triple H is one of the most decorated performers in the history of the business. The Game won multiple titles during his time as an active in-ring performer. He was also instrumental in forming two of the most dominant stables in the history of sports and entertainment, D-Generation X and Evolution.
While DX assisted him with his ascent to the upper echelons of the WWE (then WWF), it was Evolution that helped the King of Kings stay at the top of business for nearly three years. The group ultimately disbanded after Triple H turned on mentor and friend Ric Flair in the latter half of 2005.
The Nature Boy took to Twitter Friday (March 25) to comment on Triple H’s retirement from pro wrestling. For those of you who still don’t know, Hunter announced said he would never wrestle again due to his health during an appearance on ESPN’s First Take.
Flair said he knows what it takes to get a medical procedure done on human body as he himself was put under four different surgeries in seven weeks. He said Hunter had one of the greatest careers in the history of this business and that his legacy will live on forever.
Just Landed & Wanted To Finish My Thoughts. After Being Put Under In 4 Different Surgeries In 7 Weeks, I Totally Understand The Fear & Anxiety Of Being Put To Sleep & Not Waking Up. You’ve Had One Of The Greatest Careers! Your Legacy Will Live On Forever! Much Respect! @TripleH
Though the two are no longer on talking terms, the respect they have for each other is undeniable. Hunter was the one to vouch for Flair during the start of the Ruthless Aggression Era. The two would join forces to create perhaps the most dominant stable of Ruthless Aggression in Evolution.
