WWE Backstage returns with a Triple H highlight reel!
The Game has always wanted to put on amazing entrances, and he has some favorites. Him smashing the glass with a sledge, him rising from the stage with Motorhead, and his throne for WrestleMania 30 was wild because little did anyone know, that was Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss as the Valkyries. WrestleMania 31 was great, too, with HHH as a terminator. Arnold Schwarzenegger doing the voice over alone made it awesome.
But speaking of HHH and Mania, it seems that the Road is without The Game. This will be the first time in 13 years! And while he’s had many amazing moments, as we just saw, there is one that stands chief among them: The End of an Era, WrestleMania 28!
It was April 1, 2012. HHH VS Taker, Hell in a Cell with HBK as special guest ref. “When they started putting the End of an Era tag on it, we took that very seriously.” It wasn’t about retirement, but (at the time) it was the last moment these three icons were going to be in the ring together. The gong hits, the lights go out, the energy goes through the roof and you can’t help but get goosebumps. HHH had faced everyone from his generation and the ones before him, but there’s nothing like standing toe to toe with Taker. They both felt that match was clicking. It was so physical in the Cell, ultra aggressive and real. HBK couldn’t help but be in the moment, and even told HHH at one point, “Jeez, you guys are killing each other!”
There were many moments that they knew even before that fans would go nuts over. Tombstone, Sweet Chin Music, Pedigree, “capturing those moments and knowing that they’re coming, it’s just hard to describe. It’s why we all do this.” HHH doesn’t care what you do, that feeling is the juice of this business. Everything they’d all gone through, starting in the 90’s and then reaching that moment 20 years later, “there’s nobody in the business that I respect more than those two.” Those were the realest moments HHH has ever had or will have.
