Triple H has mocked boxer Deontay Wilder by blaming his heavy entrance gear for his loss against Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30 six years ago.
In the build-up to WrestleMania 36 in a few weeks, ESPN has scheduled the replay of several Showcase of Immortals shows from the past. Last night, they aired WrestleMania 30 from 2014.
At this show, Daniel Bryan finally became WWE World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Randy Orton and Batista in the main event.
Bryan also earned his spot in that main event match by defeating Triple H earlier in the night, and now The Game is coming out with excuses as to why he lost in the ring that night.
His excuse, however, will be very familiar to boxing fans, especially those that heard about Deontay Wilder blaming his entrance gear for his loss against Tyson Fury earlier this year, as that’s the exact same excuse Triple H used.
For his match against Bryan at WrestleMania 30, Triple H wore a golden crown and shoulder pads as he was accompanied by three women, who turned out to be Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss.
The Game tweeted: “Just as an FYI. That entrance costume was super heavy ....Like 45 lbs .....My legs were shot...Only reason Daniel beat me !!!!!!”
Triple H would lose in his match to Bryan, who then went on to win the WWE World Heavyweight title in the main event of WrestleMania 30 vs Orton and Batista.
Still, no fan is going to be accepting The Game’s excuse for his WrestleMania 30 loss anytime soon, the same as with Wilder and his loss vs Fury.
Triple H won’t be on this year’s special two-night WrestleMania card at the Performance Center, but Bryan could be, depending on what happens on SmackDown this week.
If Drew Gulak is able to defeat Shinsuke Nakamura on this week’s blue brand show, Bryan will receive an Intercontinental Championship match at this year’s Showcase of Immortals vs Sami Zayn.
Triple H will likely never wear anything heavy before a WrestleMania match again.
