However, the WWE Universe still expects ‘The Cerebral Assassin’ to lace up his boots, grab the sledgehammer, and crack open some skulls inside the squared circle again.

Hunter is one of the most accomplished superstars in WWE history, not to mention the successor to Vince McMahon and the WWE empire.

Why did Triple H stop wrestling?

It is due to various reasons, and one of the major reasons right now is that ‘The Game’ is currently the Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development for WWE and also a backstage producer for NXT.

This means the former world champion has to take care of day-to-day activities behind the curtains of WWE. One more reason why HHH is not entering a ring is because of multiple injuries he sustained in his career.

Can Triple H be considered as a retired WWE wrestler?

Mostly, yes. Triple H can be considered as a “semi-retired” WWE superstar who does exhibition matches for PPVs or for the sake of a storyline.

However, it looks like, with his latest injuries and set of responsibilities of the revamped NXT 2.0, the WWE Universe can expect HHH to blow off some steam and help the company from within like he has been doing for a long time.

Eventually, we cannot rule the ‘King of Kings’ out of the in-ring competition yet. He had a surprise feud with The Undertaker back in 2019 and also had a match with Batista at WrestleMania.

So, it’s safe to say that Triple H will have one iconic match like Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and The Undertaker before hanging his boots for good.

However, it remains a question whether Triple H will take over after Vince McMahon retires. Right now, Triple H is solely focused on the backstage matters of WWE, but could return as a wrestler one day.
