RVD remains one of the most technically gifted pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. He has faced off against numerous top stars in his career and that includes Triple H. That said, RVD blames a lack of communication with Triple H as a barrier to his WWE return.
Triple H is currently the Chief Content Officer, making key decisions in WWE. This role reflects the culmination of years of dedication and hard work, with Triple H initially earning his stripes as a WWE Superstar on the road before gradually ascending the corporate ladder.
RVD had a successful stint in ECW before signing with WWE in 2001, where he spent six years as an active wrestler and won numerous championships, including the WWE and ECW Championships. After leaving WWE in 2007, he briefly returned in 2013 before departing again in 2014.
RVD last appeared during the 2023 Draft but nothing more after that. While speaking on Marty Jannetty’s “Party with Marty” podcast, RVD was asked if he still communicates with Triple H. RVD noted that he never had a proper relationship with Triple H where they would regularly talk, blaming that for being a hurdle to his WWE return.
“No… I never really talk to Hunter. If I had that relationship with him where we talked, then maybe I would be there. I’m assuming that’s a big reason why I’m not there… Everyone can see I’m still in f*cking better shape than ever. I can work with a motherf*cker. If you ask me why I’m not there, I’d probably say relationships with the office but I don’t know.”
RVD and Triple H also had heat with each other for long time. RVD also previously made it clear that he has no intention of retiring. Regardless, we certainly hope the WWE Hall of Famer will be able to appear at WrestleMania 40 next year in some capacity.
