Triple H provides WWE fans with update on the pectoral tear he suffered at Crown Jewel

Triple H and HBK after their match at Crown Jewel; where HHH suffered a torn pectoral muscle

It feels like such a long time ago now, but three months ago WWE were building up to a huge tag team match in Saudi Arabia between D-Generation X and the Brothers Of Destruction.

There was much anticipation from corners of the WWE Universe surrounding the match, the most curiosity came from seeing whether Shawn Michaels could still go in the ring.

He proved he could, but for Triple H the match was disappointing to say the least, but it wasn't his fault as he clearly got injured midway through the bout.

It was later confirmed that a torn pectoral muscle was the diagnosis, and the 14-time world champion posted a picture on his Twitter account showing the brutal effects of the injury. 

The injury also seemingly put a stop to building a huge WrestleMania match with former Evolution partner Batista.

On the special 1000th episode of SmackDown back in October 2018, the two teased a feud with a face-off but it was laughed off in the ring, although several sources stated that the plan was for them to go one-on-one at the Metlife Stadium.

During a conference call to discuss the details of NXT TakeOver: Phoenix this weekend, The Game was asked about the progress of the injury he sustained - and it's positive news.

"I just got cleared to actually start training," Triple H revealed, per WrestlingInc.

"Anyone that's had a serious injury knows the difference between rehabbing a couple of hours a day and actually training. The difference is trying to get better vs. actually bettering yourself.

Triple H has stated that he's been given the all-clear to return to training after his torn pectoral muscle injury.

"So, I just got clearance to start training and I'm excited about that as I sit here right now extremely sore from that training.

"It was one week ago I got the clearance so the training has already been stepped up. But I'm feeling good."

Full training just under three months after having surgery to repair the damage seems pretty quick indeed for an injury of that nature.

And sports medicine specialist David Geier states on his website that a full return to weights and sports can take four to six months, if not longer.

The likes of HHH and John Cena seem to heal in super-human speed though, so it shouldn't be a surprise to see that Hunter is already getting on with the training he needs to do to return to the ring.

The Game returning to training so early means a WrestleMania match with Batista isn't off the cards completely.

And considering Mania is just over two months away, there's every chance that Batista could get the match with Triple H that he wants providing he hits no setbacks in training.
