During his long WWE career, Triple H held a total of 24 titles and was a 14-time world champion. He also won the 1997 edition of the 'King of the Ring' tournament, the Royal Rumble (in 2002 and 2016) and was the second winner of the Grand Slam Championship.
His fame is also due to 'D-Generation X' and 'Evolution', the two famous stable of which The Game was the lighthouse. At WrestleMania 35, HHH defeated Batista in a thrilling match full of twists. At Super ShowDown, he was instead beaten by Randy Orton.
The 52-year-old from Nashua recently underwent heart surgery, from which he is still recovering. According to what reported by Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent of the 'Wrestling Observer', the situation would still be very delicate.
“The heart problem that Triple H suffers from is very, very, very serious,” he said. During the latest edition of his 'Hall of Fame' podcast, WWE legend Booker T said that he has always esteemed and respected The Game.
Booker T praises Triple H
“We met in the WCW days, so many years ago. I'm talking about stairs, chairs, close encounters, all things that are hardly seen today. I knew right away that Triple H was a very special guy.
He never backed down, even in the most complicated situations. He has been able to entertain American, European and Asian fans with sweat, blood and tears. HHH will be remembered as one of the greatest pillars of WWE and wrestling in general,” said Booker T.
While he has not yet officially retired, it will be difficult to see Triple H in the ring again in the future. “There is a chance he will fight again, but the chances are pretty low. He will have to receive the authorization of the doctors, which will not arrive in a short time.
Do you think that he is not yet back to do his work behind the scenes at NXT” - revealed Meltzer. During his wrestling career in WWE, Triple H was often called as the golden shovel because many claimed he used to bury talent to maintain his stardom.
The former TNT Champion went on to win the match thanks to a timely assistance from his wife, Brandi Rhodes. Brandi came out to resounding boos from the crowd and lit the table kept in the middle of the ring on fire. Cody found the right opportunity to send Andrade crashing through the burning table to secure the pinfall win.
