Triple H is one of the biggest names in the pro wrestling world and has managed to contribute to the industry in a lot of ways. He is now the head of WWE Creative after taking over from Vince McMahon. The Game has gotten into a lot of controversies over the years, and this includes a time he caused a brawl.

In 2005, WWE went on a tour in the United Kingdom. During the trip, quite a few were involved in a legitimate brawl in a hotel lobby with a few kickboxers and their fans.

As revealed in his book, Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps. Chris Jericho recalled how Triple H caused a brawl after he ignored a fan who was asked for an autograph.

“He [the fan] was being obnoxious, so H [Triple H] ignored him and got on the lift to his room. The punter started yelling, ‘All you wrestlers are assholes! You’re all a bunch of p*sses!” One of our referees, Jack Doan, told him to calm down, and the guy popped him in the face and tackled him to the ground. I dropped my bags and ran to Jack’s rescue (…) Baldboy’s friends rushed over to help him, our guys ran over to stop them, the kickboxers and their hooligan sycophants joined the fray, and suddenly the lobby was a Charles-town Chiefs– Syracuse Bulldogs bench-clearing brawl.

Finally the cops came and the boxers and their toadies scattered like the Socs after the Greasers defeated them in the parking lot rumble. The cops were WWE fans, and after asking a few questions, they kicked the remaining dregs out of the hotel, got a few autographs for their ‘kids,’ and left us alone. WWE Superstars 1, Kickboxers nil.”

Chris Jericho is currently one of the mainstays of AEW television, while Triple H continues to shape WWE into something that fans genuinely enjoy. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for both AEW and WWE.
