With the highly anticipated Elimination Chamber event just a few days away, the chief operating officer of WWE has made a shocking revelation.
Triple H has claimed that it was he, and not Eric Bischoff who invented the Elimination Chamber event back in 2002.
According to a report by whatculture.com, Triple H said:
"I’m the one who invented it. I drew a square cage and put four other squares in the corners, and I said, ‘It’s six guys. Two start and every few minutes, another cage opens and one more guys enters the fight, and everyone fights until there’s one guy left.’ I thought it could be interesting because, if the Superstars involved have issues, then there’s intrigue."
In a 2002 storyline, Bischoff who was then the GM of RAW came up with the idea but now Triple H is refuting that line. Bischoff himself confirmed the rumor yesterday on twitter when he revealed to a fan:
“It is true. It was only my idea in a story line.”
At the time of Elimination Chamber's inception, Triple H was in no position of power on screen but was involved in the inner circle of the company by virtue of his relationship with Stephanie McMahon.
Triple H has won four Elimination Chamber events during his career. The headline event for this weekend's show will be a match including Randy Orton and John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
