Speaking to GiveMeSport in an exclusive interview, Drew McIntyre has reacted to Triple H’s retirement.
Earlier on today, Triple H announced his retirement from wrestling after heart issues he dealt with last year.
Fans didn’t realise how serious the multi-time WWE Champion’s health scare was, with Triple H revealing that he was close to dying.
Thankfully HHH made it through and is still with us, but the issues were so serious that ‘The Game’ will never be able to wrestle again, as he explained:
“As far as in-ring, I’m done. I would never wrestle again. I have a defibrillator in my chest so it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to get zapped on live TV.”
Speaking to GiveMeSport’s Louis Dangoor, WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre has reacted to HHH’s retirement.
The former WWE Champion spoke about how Triple H brought him back to WWE, explaining that the pair later became friends.
I can’t overstate just how much Triple H has done for me. From the lessons I learned that I didn’t understand when I was 24, to the man that brought me back to WWE. We were able to build a relationship where we became friends eventually, and he was always somebody I could go to and ask questions.
Drew went on to speak about Triple H’s incredible career, and how he was hoping to be able to wrestle the legend in a big match.
Such a phenomenal in-ring career. It’s really a sad day. He’s not going to wrestle again. I was really hoping for one big match, but what matters most is family and health. What he said is the truth, and I’m just glad we’ve still got him around and he will be around for a lot longer. So disappointing to hear that news, but at the same time, but when you hear the story, a happy ending.
It’s obviously incredibly sad that Triple H will never be able to wrestle again, but the main thing and good news is that he’s happy, healthy, and still with us.
As for Drew McIntyre, the Scotsman is slated to wrestle at WrestleMania 38 next weekend when he goes one-on-one with Happy Corbin.
The feud started back in 2021, and will come to ahead when the pair share the ring at WWE’s biggest show of the year.
You can watch WrestleMania 38 on April 2 and 3 live in the US on Peacock and everywhere else on the WWE Network.
