Triple H is the latest in a long line of stars that has continued to heap the praise on Brock Lesnar after he returned to the Octagon and defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
The Beast Incarnate upset the odds against the favourite, and although it was unclear how the WWE would react with their biggest draw helping out a rival promotion, The Game seems to be jubilant with what happened based on his recent WWE 2K17 conference call.
ONCE IN A LIFETIME ATHLETE
He said: “To me, it speaks to the amazing athlete that Brock Lesnar is.”

Rumours will continue to circulate regarding Lesnar’s future in the WWE, but Triple H doesn’t seem too worried about now, highlighting how both companies are benefiting from Lesnar’s dominance.
BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH ORGANISATIONS
“We’ve said it a million times about Brock, but, I think it’s worth repeating that he is a once in a lifetime athlete. Guys don’t come along that big, that fast, [with] that mentality.
“He’s a once in a lifetime combat athlete and certainly helps everybody. UFC banking on Brock Lesnar’s name and in the very beginning of him becoming a UFC star and then him showing his dominance with it, and now the same thing, it’s a great back and forth.
“They benefit from it. We benefit from it. It’s been great, and my hat’s off to Brock. He’s amazing, amazing athlete.”
With how much coverage the WWE are receiving with this deal, it won’t be a surprise to see the WWE and UFC do business again soon.
