Triple H won’t be stepping back in the ring to face The Rock, despite teased tensions between the two on WWE programming.
On this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Triple H asserted his authority following the chaotic end to the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff press conference and threw some shade at the Great One.
Despite speculation from some fans that a future match is being teased, Dave Meltzer made clear on Wrestling Observer Radio that this won’t be happening. He said,
“They played their little game that they want to wrestle each other at WrestleMania. Last time I was told, that wasn’t even gonna happen. I couldn’t even imagine, you know, he has a pacemaker, so he made it clear that’s not gonna happen.”
Triple H’s in-ring career ended in 2022 after the WWE CCO suffered a cardiac event the previous year. He left his boots in the ring at WrestleMania 38.
