Triple H is a legend in the world of professional wrestling. He significantly helped out the industry during the late 90s and early 2000s. Even Daniel Garcia paid tribute to him recently.
On the April 22 episode of Rampage, fans noticed something interesting about Daniel Garcia’s getup. Garcia squared off against Eddie Kingston and was seen wearing a Kangol hat during his entrance.
Many fans assumed it was a tribute to Triple H during the 90s. While speaking on Talk is Jericho, Daniel Garcia confirmed that his Kangol hat was a tribute to Triple H.
In real life, I’m really into streetwear and workwear, stuff like that. I wear really baggy clothing, but I knew I couldn’t do baggy pants and a baggy shirt. I know I would look like 120 lbs soaking wet.
“So I figured ‘Okay, I can keep the baggy pants because I just look better in that. I’ll just wear a tight tank top or top as if I took a baggy shirt off.’
“But then one day, I can’t remember exactly what it was, what made me think of it, but I just thought to myself ‘Man, Triple H used to always wear that backward leather hat.’ I was like ‘He always used to wear that backward leather hat.’
“And it’s funny because, on my Snapchat, something popped up at my wrestling school that I train at. My trainer has a Shawn Michaels costume from the 90s, and it came with the leather hat.
“And I, this is my first couple months of training, I put it on backward and I’d do Triple H impressions at the gym.”
Daniel Garcia is currently part of The Jericho Appreciation Society as they battle the Blackpool Combat Club. We’ll have to see how their feud will be booked in the coming weeks.
