Quote This year, WrestleMania will have a slightly different feel. Triple H has headlined, or played a major role in every WrestleMania for the last decade, but due to an unfortunate injury, that will change this year. This year, the Cerebral Assassin will be among the more than 70,000 fans jam packed into Detroit’s Ford Field. Recently, The Game took a break from his recovery to chat with WWE.com about this year’s historic event.

In his own storied WrestleMania career, Triple H has faced each of the four competitors in this year’s Championship main events. Last year, the former 10-time World Champion challenged John Cena for the WWE Championship, a prize the Chain Gang leader will once again defend at this year’s spectacle. While he was unable to walk away with the gold on that day, Triple H took Cena to the limit, and The Game thinks his DX partner, Shawn Michaels, may have the advantage as he attempts to succeed where so many others have failed. 

“This is going to be a very unique challenge for John,” said Triple H. “He’s never faced anyone like Shawn in a spot like this before. Having faced HBK at WrestleMania, I can tell you that he’s stronger than you expect, faster than you expect, and more resilient than you think. Cena is going to have his hands full.”

Despite Triple H’s absence from Raw, DX remains strong. The Game continues to stay in touch with HBK as he prepares for one of the biggest matches of his career. Over the years, Michaels has personified WrestleMania, providing breathtaking performances while creating a legacy that may never be matched. Triple H told WWE.com that Shawn appears to be on the path to another showstopping performance.

“This is as motivated as I’ve ever seen Shawn,” said The Game. “The opportunity to wrestle for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania has been like a new shot of life for HBK. It’s great to see him feel this way, and be this passionate. This is what Shawn is all about.”

Meanwhile, another man Triple H knows well is former partner, Batista, who will face the biggest challenge of his life when he defends the World Heavyweight Championship against the most unstoppable force in WrestleMania history, Undertaker. The Phenom’s 14-0 record on sports-entertainment’s grandest stage remains as one of the most hallowed streaks in WWE history. Having fell victim to the Deadman himself, Triple H knows the near-impossible challenge that awaits The Animal.

“The Undertaker is a guy that you just can’t prepare for,” said The Game. “He never stops. He’ll keep coming at you until you have nothing left. There is a reason he is called the Phenom, and there’s a reason he’s never lost at WrestleMania.”

While defeating Undertaker may seem like an impossible task, Triple H believes that if anyone can do it, it may be Batista. Since returning from a career-threatening injury in 2006, The Animal has been on a roll, and that momentum may carry him to the biggest victory of his career at WrestleMania.

“He’s not in the position he’s in by accident,” said Triple H. “Batista is as strong and as tough as anyone in the WWE, and he has proven that time and time again. When he wrestled me, he was in the best shape of his career, and that will be a major factor this year. If he shows up in that kind of shape, he has a real shot to end the streak.”

While The Game will be unable to perform, he is still looking forward to the unmatched atmosphere that WrestleMania will bring to Ford Field.

“It’s our biggest showcase of the year,” said Triple H. “It will be fun to be there, and hear 70,000 WWE fans yelling for their favorite Superstars. It will be tough not being able to get in that ring, but I am still going to enjoy the environment.”

Triple H has appeared at every Wrestlemania since March 1996 when he debuted and got killed by The Warrior, but yes a very good interview done on WWE and Hunter keeps it real and even u can tell DX is still runnen' wild, who knows, at Wrestlemania Hunter may show up in support of Shawn Michaels.

A stupid kayfabe interview that i blame Mitchell Coles for lol. Where else would you have one of the greatest ever heels bumming the face competitors that he's faced in the past? He only says what we have already heard a million times. For example how many times have we heard someone in the business say you cannot prepare to face the Undertaker? Countless times that I have lost count. He even makes himself seem daft by even suggesting Batista could win. It's just a HHH interview where he gets to brown nose the guys he likes.

Source: Ewrestlingnews.com - - Triple H recently spoke about Ric Flair, the WWE, UFC and more, here are some highlights…

On Ric Flair: "Ric is one of my best friends. Ric doesn't know when to walk away. Ric doesn't want to be told to walk away. And Ric can't afford to walk away. Ric has lived every day of his life like it's the last for almost the fifty years he's been in the business. In Ric's mind, it's still 1982, he's on top of the world, he's young, he's got a lot of money. Ric has never questioned spending. We have a term on the road where if you go out and you have a crazy night that you spent a ludicrous amount of money or you just lose it one day and you can't go through another airport and you're trying to get a jet instead, we call it 'Naitching.' Ridiculously spending money for no point is called 'Naitching.'"

On The UFC & Evolving: I don't think we have to evolve. It's two totally different things. I think now especially there's this thing like, "oh it's very similar." I don't see us needing to evolve to what UFC does because quite frankly sometimes the fights are long and boring, guys lying around and sometimes the fights are fast and over in five seconds. I've always thought one of the things about us, if you look at us solely from a sports standpoint, is that we always give you a good show. We're never going to give you a crap game.

I think if anybody needs to evolve, it's them. Give more of an entertainment standpoint. Give more form; they just have fighters who walk in in T-shirts and shorts and just stand there and then they fight and then they win and then they go "thanks, I'd like to thank my sponsors" and then they leave. The whole world was up in arms when Brock was flipping people off and was cussing at the beer company because they didn't give him any money and everyone thought, "oh my god, he's disrespectful," -- the whole world was talking about it. They couldn't wait to see him get beat up. And then he did well, and he beat some guys and then people jump on his bandwagon going "Brock's the greatest." I'm good friends with Floyd Mayweather and Floyd would be the first to tell ya, "I make the most money in boxing and I have the biggest buyers because I have the biggest mouth." He'd be the first guy to tell you that. That's what it's about. Sports is entertainment.
 
He's spot on about Ric Flair, Naitch will be involved in wrestling for as long as people will still keep paying him to be, he doesnt know any other way of life and as Trips said he needs the cash, as well as his lavish lifestyle he pays out more in alimony to his fleet of ex-wives than some of us even earn in a year.
 
I also agree about UFC, I enjoy watching MMA on occasion but I must admit I find watching two men grappling on the ground for long periods really boring, and it does lack the entertainment aspect of wrestling. When Lesnar flipped and started giving the finger to the crowd and so forth people lapped it up and Lesnar effectively became must see in UFC as hardcore MMA fans wanted to see him get beat and his name drew in the more casual fans like myself.
UFC dont need to start running storylines and such like as that would just be silly, after all they are a legit sport, but it might pay them to have the top stars develop on-screen personas that will get fans to cheer or boo them.

Quote Triple H appeared on FOX Business this morning to promote WWE and his new movie Inside Out.
The on-air WWE COO talked about things always changing in pro wrestling. He said, "We can change with the times. We just kind of evolve and go where the fans want us to go. That's what Vince McMahon and the company has always been genius at is keeping their finger on the pulse of what our fans want."
Triple H also talked about WWE recruiting new talents across the globe. "We scour the globe and we're going to find them now and bring them to us rather than just letting them find us."
He also added that his future in the ring will be very limited after the match against CM Punk at Night of Champions.


How can he say they go where the fans want them to go? Many don't like a lot of the things that they do like the PG rating, mega pushes of SuperRan/Cena ect.

I'm all for new talent from around the world getting a chance. It's a definate plus that they are becoming more pro active at that.

I'm glad his matches will be limited too. It will feel more of a special attraction when he does compete then.

Glad he won't be wrestling too many times as he is at the stage now where he doesn't have much less and would be more injury prone.
 
Disagree about the UFC there entirely different sports WWE is about entertainment so is the UFC but there show is also a sport with legimimate fights between some of the best in the buisness.
 
I want to know who Hunter is helping cause either there not taking his advice or hes giving them all the wrong advice.

Quote Triple H spoke with

The Miami Herald this week to promote his new WWE Studios movie Inside Out. Here are a few highlights:

Stephanie McMahon's reaction to his kissing scenes:
"When the kissing scene comes up, my wife just leaves the room. It would be very quiet for a long time. The [Triple H] kissing scenes dont go over very big in my house."

Filming Inside Out:
"Inside Out for me was a phenomenal experience because I worked with Michael Rapaport, Parker Posey, Julie White, Michael Cudlitz, Bruce Dern. Thats a pretty heavy duty list of very good actors. For me, shooting scenes with Bruce Dern was never-wracking. Im sitting across from Bruce Dern, shooting a heated scene with him."

Doing movies and wrestling:
"Ive always said this. Its never been my desire to necessarily go to Hollywood. When I did Blade, I was offered a three-picture deal with New Line [Cinema], and I turned it down because I didnt want to make movies and be a movie guy. I wanted to stay in the wrestling business. When [WWE Studios] offered me The Chaperone [2011] and Inside Out, I said, Yes. They were good projects, and the timing worked right. I had the time off."

"If another thing comes along, and its a great project, and I like the script, and I think Id have fun doing it, I would do it. But am I knocking on somebodys door? Im not calling up the guys who run WWE Studios, saying, Hey, guys, wheres my next movie? If its the right thing [with WWE Studios] and its the right time, great. If not, Im cool with that, too. Its a fun thing to do on the side."


This is a typical women's response when they see there man kissing another woman even if it's for a movie. Like what woman isn't gonna be jealous ?

I can't see Triple H as a movie guy & you can clearly see Triple H is dedicated to wrestling. We need more people like that maybe there will be more productive matches. Plus Triple H doesn't look like a movie kind of guy anyways. 

I like that Triple H was open that doing movies is a side project & not his main focus. I wonder if Triple H goes around saying ( Hey, guys, wheres my next title match ) - lmao

Trags for HOF'er !

Quote As noted, WWE executive Paul "Triple H" Levesque recently represented WWE at the Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

During the interview, 'The Game' spoke about the decision and thought-process behind his recent return to the squared circle. As HHH explained, when guys like Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt go down, leaving a big piece of the WWE experience missing from an event, he has no problems stepping up to save the show.

"This has been a unique couple of weeks in my day job," said Triple H. "I really don't get into the ring anymore, I had a 20-plus year career. I wrestle a couple of times a year now at big events, but we had some illness. I didn't have it, which is why I was here. But we had some illnesses that prevented some of our performers from coming on this international tour. One thing we like to do as WWE we like to always over-deliver for our fans so we hate to kind of promise them something and it doesn't come to be. If that has to happen, because at the end of the day you're dealing with human beings, it's not like if Iron Man doesn't show up in the movie they just put another guy in the suit and he could do it. With us it's different, there's no second-string John Cena, there's no second-string Roman Reigns.

Triple H continued, "So we had to over-deliver for people, so I dusted off my boots and I've been out here, I was in Santiago, Chile and then out here in the UK performing every night in the ring. I was here, coincidentally, in Lisbon, we had a sold-out show here in Lisbon last night and then got up this morning and came here and spoke at the web summit. Put my suit back on and became an executive again."

Also during the Web Summit, Triple H spoke about the possibility of squaring off against Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson at a future WrestleMania.

"There's been speculation about a lot of guys. Lately, for whatever reason, there has been speculation about myself and The Rock. I have put it out there, and he has put it out there, that I would love to step in the ring with him one more time, I would love to dance with 'The Great One' again," Triple H said. "If we're gonna do it we do it on the biggest stage of them all, WrestleMania, but at this point in time there has been no formal conversations had, so I don't want to get people too excited. But if the opportunity came up, I'd lay the SmackDown on his candy-ass one more time."

Good for him. The roster wasn't as strong as it could have been, so he stepped up like management should in times of need.
 
Yes he was in tag team matches, but it says a lot about the condition he still keeps himself in to this day, that he can step up at such short notice.
 
I wouldn't want to see him against The Rock again, so won't lose sleep if it doesn't happen.

No. If Triple H steps in the ring it needs to be against a younger guy he's going to lose to, not some other legend he can use as a stepping stone to cement his legacy. Triple H is the most boring fucking wrestler. The only time he ever interests me is when he loses. He has great value as a loser just like Vince McMahon did, and no one can fill that hole of Vince's better than Triple H.

He must be coming back for mania though - he has called out Jinder on twitter plus he formed with the shield on one of the tours recently.

They must be his tune up matches for when he decides to face someone at Mania

I'm hoping its Kevin Owens as part of the Shane o Mac business that would be taken care of later.

He needs to put Owens over though

Yeah, see? That's fine! I can totally get on board with Triple H as a member of the "authority" trying to hold down fresh young talent that people really like and doing the job and making him look good. That's way better than ever seeing him wrestle The Undertaker 2 years in a row, or Brock Lesnar, or Sting, or The Rock.

The best WrestleMania match I've ever seen with Triple H in it was when he lost to Daniel Bryan. That was awesome. I can only imagine how much better it might have been had he lost to CM Punk. With Kevin Owns? That's totally cool with me.
