WWE had to make emergency changes to their shows last week after the mumps and other issues caused superstars to be unavailable for the matches which they were advertised for both in the United States and abroad.
As Bray Wyatt wasn't able to compete against Finn Balor at TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs last Sunday, AJ Styles was brought in from SmackDown's South America tour in Chile to fill his spot. Kevin Owens also flew home from the tour as well due to family issues.
WWE didn't want their fans in Chile to be upset that they wouldn't be able to see either Styles or Owens despite the fact they were advertised, so to make up for it, the company went above and beyond for a simple house show, and sent Triple H over for a one-off appearance.
The Game ended up having a match against Rusev and it worked out well for both parties on the night, as Triple H received the biggest reaction.
The Cerebral Assassin even took time out to do a bit of twerking with The New Day before delivering a Pedigree on Kofi Kingston and dancing his way back up the ramp to back. However, that wasn't the end of his generosity on this South America trip.
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that the shows in Chile were paid for by a local promotion run by Hugo Savinovich who was the Spanish-language announcer in WWE from 1994 to 2011.
They paid $900,000 for WWE to be there, so it was right for WWE to respond when The Phenomenal One and The Prizefighter couldn't make the show by sending Triple H over.
The Game, however, wasn't paid for his match, according to Wrestling News, as his pay went to Owens instead despite him not being there. An absolutely great gesture by him.
Triple H will be back in the ring very soon, as he has been added to dates on the WWE's tour of the United Kingdom next week. As for Owens, he returned to SmackDown Live earlier this week on Tuesday and is expected to be back on a full working schedule soon.
