“He started laughing and said, ‘You’re on a list of people that have asked me that.’ I was like, I bet, I can imagine–he gets it all the time by guys being like, ‘Hey you wanna work? You wanna wrestle?'”

Hunter staying away from in-ring competition

The COO of WWE Triple H hasn’t wrestled since WrestleMania 35, where he ended up victorious against Batista and subsequently retired him for good. Hunter has also stayed away from making unnecessary TV appearances. It’s always a dream for talents like Damian Priest to have a match with a legend like Triple H. But it looks like Priest has to wait a little longer to step into the ring with The Game.
