WWE EVP, Triple H, revealed that entering the ring after not wrestling for a year was the hardest thing he had to do.
During an interview with WWE’s The Bump, Hunter joked about the glass case with a hammer besides it which reads “Break in case you need Triple H”. Vince McMahon has often used this to bring him out to the ring for his help. It is likely that Mr. McMahon will continue to do so until he retires.
Entering the ring after a year of not wrestling and dealing with the pressure of not letting anybody down or compromising his level of performance has been difficult.
That he hadn’t wrestled for a year didn’t mean that the audience had forgotten the type of performances he delivers inside the ring. He had to deal with the immense pressure of living up to the standard he set. Unfortunately, a year of no practice can lead to faded in-ring skills.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had something harder in my career than the moments where you don’t wrestle for an entire year, or longer. Or, a long, long period of time like that and you come out and it’s like ‘okay do this at the highest level’. Try to continue adding to what you’ve done without letting yourself or anyone else down. It really is, that is the most difficult challenge I’ve ever faced. Having those times when you don’t wrestle for a year, the pressure is immense.”
Triple H last appeared inside the squared circle back in 2019 in a losing effort to Randy Orton at WWE Super Showdown. Since then, he has been invested in working backstage and growing WWE and WWE NXT.
If he returns, it will probably be for a major stage like WrestleMania. He has claimed that his last match was the unofficial retirement; however, he has revealed no plans for when he wants to make it official.
