The last few months have not been easy for Triple H. The 14-time world champion was forced to leave WWE due to a heart problem, which resulted in an operation in September 2021. The long rehabilitation caused The Game to abandon the desire to return to fighting.
Shortly before WrestleMania 38, the 'Cerebral Assassin' announced his final retirement leaving everyone speechless. Hunter appeared briefly at the 'Showcase of the Immortals', greeting the WWE Universe and depositing his boots in the middle of the ring.
About a week ago, news broke about Vince McMahon's retirement. His role was taken over by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while HHH was put in charge of the creative team. Triple H has already got to work and has several twists in mind for SummerSlam, the most important pay-per-view of the summer.
In a long interview granted to Sportskeeda, Tommaso Ciampa expressed his opinion on the recent changes in the company.
Tommaso Ciampa talks about Triple H
“Usually, change generates excitement. Everyone has their own opinions about it and I must admit that I am quite happy” - began Tommaso Ciampa, who is struggling more than expected to carve out an important space on the main roster.
“Triple H and I understand each other on the fly because we have a very similar approach to business. We both love to tell stories and I hope we can get the audience excited. My expectations are really high” - added Tommaso.
According to Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent for the Wrestling Observer, there is some concern about HHH's health: “After the heart operation, he was told that he could lead a normal life. He will now be called upon to manage five hours of weekly shows, which will become more than eight during the PPVs.
It's not exactly a normal life. It is a role that will bring him considerable stress, not to mention the numerous trips he will have to make to follow the shows”. Recently, The Blue Meanie has requested Triple H to give all one-named wrestlers their first names back, now that he holds significant power in WWE.
Former WWE/ECW wrestler The Blue Meanie, aka Brian Heffron, took to Twitter during SummerSlam 2022 to make a request to The Game. Here's what he wrote in his tweet: "Dear @TripleH. Please give all the one-named wrestlers their 1st names back.#SummerSlam." Twitter users replied with a few common memes that showcased their appreciation for Triple H.
