Triple H has had to leave WWE in recent months after undergoing a delicate heart surgery, from which he is still recovering. While he hasn't officially retired from wrestling, The Game is unlikely to be able to return to the ring in the future.
The 14-time world champion has successfully dedicated himself to his managerial role over the years, personally contributing to the birth and rise of NXT. The work done by HHH has allowed the 'Black and Gold' brand to become a great alternative to the Raw and SmackDown shows.
His friend Shawn Michaels is working on NXT 2.0 right now and the management is very happy with the results. Several members of Paul Levesque's team - including William Regal - have been released in the past few months.

I think Vince intends to start over”. WWE will host the PPV Elimination Chamber on February 19 in Saudi Arabia. Speaking on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Rollins recalled how NXT founder Triple H took exception to his backstage behavior at the time.
“Terry is very old school in the sense that he thinks a certain way works, and part of that ideology is sort of shunning what is up and coming instead of embracing it," said Rollins. "And I was always like, ‘Hey, the business is changing.
You’ve gotta go with it. If you go against it, it’s not gonna help.’ I would just challenge him in little ways every day to the point where I was insubordinate, and Hunter [Triple H] took me aside and was like, ‘Look, I don’t see anything special in you...."
