Triple H recalls his career-defining return at Madison Square Garden

In a recent interview with New York Post, Triple H recalled the time when he was making returning from a career-threatening quad injury after spending eight long months in rehabilitation. He also acknowledged it was the crowd at the MSG which made this return epic.

“There’s no greater crowd than Madison Square Garden when it’s packed,” HHH admitted.

In the same interview, ‘The Game’ remembered how terrified he was before making his return in the ring. Interestingly, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin calmed his nerves down and gave a pep talk to the Game before his music hit.

“It’s funny, at that time I remember that day ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and I talking about [it,]”. No matter what you’ve done or what you see or what you feel coming into it, there is always that moment of when my music hits, are they going to care? And to get that kind of reaction was very, very emotional. It’s something that I’ll never forget.” said Triple H.

It was a 2002 episode of ‘Monday Night Raw’ in a packed MSG arena. Triple H made his much-hyped return in front of the crowd and announced that he’d be officially entering the Royal Rumble.

Eventually, Hunter won the Rumble and went on to win the Undisputed Championship from Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 18.

“We do it all for them, there’s no other real reason. You’re doing it for that reaction,” HHH said in the interview.
