Triple H has opened up on a potential match against The Rock.
“The Game” was a guest on Good Morning Britain earlier this week to promote the current WWE overseas tour. During the interview, he talked about a possible match between him and The Rock. Here is what he had to say:
“Dwayne and I started our careers together. I’ve probably fought him more than anybody. I have said it before, I would love to dance with The Great One one more time. Absolutely.”
The Rock is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. He picked up his popularity in the mainstream while working in the WWE from 1996 to 2004 and was the first third-generation wrestler in the company's history. He returned to WWE part-time from 2011–13 and continues to make sporadic appearances for the company.
During his time with the company, he is an eight-time WWE Champion, two-time WCW/World Champion, two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and a five-time WWE Tag Team Champion. He is the sixth Triple Crown Champion in WWE and won the 2000 Royal Rumble.
It’s always possible that WWE books Triple H against The Rock at WrestleMania 34, which is slated to take place on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.
When asked about possibility of Conor McGregor wrestling in WWE, Triple H stated,
“Conor McGregor has said a lot of stuff about WWE in the past. I don’t have a problem with it because he has said I am “a Don” but he’s said a lot of stuff about our talent in the past. If Conor McGregor comes in it won’t be an easy go.”
Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE officials are still planning on doing the Horsewomen vs. Horsewomen match. Instead of it taking place at Survivor Series, it is being planned for WrestleMania 34.
As to why the match has been pushed back until then is because there's a Raw vs. SmackDown theme at Survivor Series.
When asked about the possibility of Ronda Rousey wrestling in WWE. the former WWE champion stated, “She is very interested in our business. She always has been. Huge fan. That’s where the “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey comes from. Huge fan. I think she is interested in the opportunity and I am interested in offering the opportunity so we have some talking to do.”
