Triple H on doing another Mae Young Classic soon

After the dissolution of the DX, Triple H was pushed as a main eventer, winning several single titles. Triple H then took part in a storyline that saw him marry Stephanie McMahon, who later became his wife in real life. In 2003 he formed another faction, known as Evolution (with Ric Flair, Batista and Randy Orton), and reformed the D-X with Shawn Michaels in 2006 and 2009.

The Game has also won a number of championships in his career, being a five-time Intercontinental Champion, a three-time world tag team champion (two World Tag Team Championship reigns, and one Unified WWE Tag Team Championship reign), a two-time European Champion, and a fourteen-time world champion, making him the company's seventh Triple Crown Champion and second Grand Slam Champion.

He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, and a King of the Ring tournament winner. Later in his career, Triple H gained notability for his behind-the-scenes work at WWE, creating the developmental branch NXT, and gaining praise for his business acumen in professional wrestling.

During a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, HHH reflected on doing another Mae Young Classic soon: “We’re gonna do it again here soon, and we’re kind of getting to that point again now, like, wow, there is just a lot out there.

So they are here and there and they’re all over the place. I think the talent sort of gravitate toward finding each other and they end up in these little pockets and then they’re all learning from each other but helping to bring that out and show it to the rest of the world is the goal.

Even as aware of the environment, globally, as we are, when we went to go do the Mae Young Classic the first time, and we started to say, oh we’re going to do this tournament with women, are there enough women out there for us to do this? We’ll do 16, but finding 16 elite women of the caliber that we want to be in this will be a challenge, and then we started to dig and we started to find more and more and next thing you know we’re at 32 and next thing you know, to do a 32 women in the tournament, I’m going, hm, boy, who am I going to put in there and who am I not gonna put in there?”
