WWE's NXT division has been in London this week on tour, with it culminating at NXT TakeOver on Wednesday.

Triple H is also in the UK for the trip, and has revealed like many other WWE superstars have done so in the past which Premier League team he supports. Daniel Bryan supports Everton, Neville is a Newcastle fan (since he is from there), Sheamus is a Liverpool fan, and The Game revealed today that he is a West Ham fan.

Speaking with ITV news, according to the club's official website, he said the reason behind his support for the Hammers was down to their fans showing the same passion as the WWE Universe.

He said: “West Ham is probably the closest to what we do, with the passion of their fanbase and their loyalty, right? That's the closest to what we do.

“In WWE we say we have the most passionate and loyal fans of all-time, but that might be debatable with West Ham, you know!”

You can see why Triple H may have chosen West Ham as his Premier League team. After all, his weapon of choice when allowed in the ring is a sledgehammer.

When he was asked which West Ham player could become a good wrestler, his answer was no other than striker Andy Carroll, and for good reason.

He said: “He is tall, likes to play it tough with the opposition and has the right looks with the long hair. He could be interesting!”

Carroll has only played 11 times for West Ham this season, scoring just the once, so maybe a career in wrestling isn't that far away after all...

Would Andy Carroll make a good wrestler? Have your say and leave a comment below...
