It was great while it lasted. There have been a lot of stars throughout the history of wrestling but very few make it all the way to legendary status. Those are the names who have been around for so long that it is hard to imagine wrestling without them, but at some point, everyone is going to have to hang up their boots. That is the case again with an all time legend.
Triple H was a guest on ESPN First Take and announced that his in-ring career was over due to health issues. This comes after Triple H suffered a cardiac event back in August and has not returned to full time work in WWE since. He also revealed that his heart ejection fraction was at 12%, while 55-65% is considered good, meaning that he was in heart failure. As a result, Triple H has a defibrillator in his chest and he did not thing it was a good idea for him to be zapped on live television. There is no word on his return to working backstage for WWE. Triple’s last match came at a live event in Tokyo, Japan on June 29, 2019.
Opinion: I don’t know if this is the biggest surprise but wow it is strange to actually see such an announcement. Like him or not, Triple H is one of the biggest stars in wrestling in the last twenty five years. He had a lot of authority behind the scenes and will probably return to that position at some point, but that is a very serious situation to hear and thankfully everything seems to be better than it was before.
