Road Dogg pays tribute to Triple H

One of the saddest events of 2022 was undoubtedly the retirement of Triple H. Shortly before WrestleMania 38, The Game announced its decision never to return to the ring. In September 2021, HHH underwent a delicate heart operation following a cardiac event.

The 14-time world champion had to face a long rehabilitation process, which made him reflect and led him to abandon the desire to return to fighting. Hunter made a brief appearance on the 'Showcase of the Immortals', greeting the WWE Universe and depositing his boots in the center of the ring.

In addition to being an outstanding performer, the 'Cerebral Assassin' did a great job behind the desk as well. Triple H was in fact the main architect of the birth and development of NXT, having made the 'Black and Gold' brand a very valid alternative to the Raw and SmackDown shows.

In the course of a recent interview with Liam Alexander-Stewart for 'Inside The Ropes', former Intercontinental champion Road Dogg had nice words for his great friend The Game.

Road Dogg speaks about Triple H

“Triple H has been taking care of me since day one I arrived in WWE.

He continued to do so in the following years and I also looked after him. We have been friends for 30 years. Hunter will always have a special place in my heart” - said Road Dogg. “There are so many little things I should thank HHH for.

He gave me many opportunities and believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself. I will love him until the day I die” - added the WWE Hall of Famer. Mick Foley echoed: “Triple H was a great performer, one of the best of all time.

He has received numerous criticisms throughout his career, including because of his connection with the McMahon family. Beyond people's thoughts, it is undeniable that HHH was able to bring out the best in its opponents”.

While Vince McMahon hired two Executive Directors in Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff in 2019 to reduce his creative workload, both men are now gone and it's Bruce Prichard who is in charge. During a recent interview with Metro, Butch stated that he was emotional with Triple H during WrestleMania 38 weekend, but it was great to see him okay and healthy.

"For me, real-life takes over. The moments in front of the crowd, I’m happy he got to have that, but it was just nice to have a direct conversation with him one to one, and just make sure that everything’s good and see that he’s okay and looks healthy."
