After Triple H lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 32, many thought he would be calling it a day from in-ring competition and taking more of a backseat role in the company.
People thought he would step away from the ring to focus more on NXT, and building himself up to eventually be the successor to Vince McMahon in running the company once he decides to call it a day.
However, recent news has suggested that this isn't the case, and that he will be a part of the WWE for at least a couple more years.

According to Wrestling Inc, new WWE paperwork filed with the SEC has revealed that Triple H has signed a new three-year wrestling deal with the company which would see him through until WrestleMania 35 in 2019.
This contract will automatically renew as well once the deal expires unless it is terminated for any reason. His previous performer's deal expired at the end March this year.

This is great news for fans of The Game, as he will be on our screens for another couple more years providing some excellent matches for us all to enjoy.
Not all fans will be behind this decision, as they believe the former WWE champion is at the age where he needs to take a step back from in-ring competition, and allow that spot to be used up by someone younger who can flourish into possibly a future star.
Yet, Triple H is one of the best WWE superstars in the history of the company. He was there during the Attitude Era and was part of one of the best stables in that era, D-Generation X. He helped carry the business to new heights and into the public eye. So what future feuds could he be involved in now he has a new deal?
Possible future feud
Since he hasn't appeared since his loss at WrestleMania, The Game is yet to have his rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Reigns. This is good enough to be a SummerSlam feud, although the reaction to it may be bad as fans already know the former Shield member is going to retain the title.
However, a way which the WWE could still have this match take place but make it appealing for the fans to watch would be to make it a triple threat match with the inclusion of another former WWE champion who was also part of The Shield, Seth Rollins.
Rollins technically was never pinned for the title, as he had to relinquish the championship when he tore his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus in his knee while attempting to perform a sunset flip powerbomb during a match. He is expected to return to the ring anytime now, and he will be wanting the championship back.
