When WrestleMania is around the corner, it’s obvious that we talk about WrestleMania entrances. And when it comes to WrestleMania entrances, no one has had better than ‘The Game’ Triple H. But there was a time when one of his iconic entrances really backfired.

The time Triple H suffered second-degree burns during WrestleMania 29 entrance

WWE held WrestleMania 29 from the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Triple H faced Brock Lesnar in a No Holds Barred Match. But more than the match, it was his entrance that gave him the most pain and agony that night.

Triple H made his iconic entrance, rising from under the stage and walking amidst some heavy smoke. Or did he? Actually, the smoke was caused by dry ice. Sadly, the dry ice stuck on Hunter’s body and burned him.

Triple H realized he was burning, but didn’t understand how or why. He then saw the dry ice stuck to his body and tried brushing it off as he walked down the aisle at WrestleMania. Despite shrugging it off, the dry ice didn’t really move, giving ‘The Game‘ second-degree burns.

Even after such an agonizing incident during his entrance, Triple H battled with Brock Lesnar for almost thirty minutes. Now that’s a true professional wrestler/sports entertainer. The ‘King of Kings’ showed off the burns the next day after WrestleMania on social media.

The ‘Cerebral Assassin’ is one of the most determined Superstars on the roster. It’s difficult to bear so much pain and continue to do what he did. Luckily, that accident was the only one on his illustrious and impressive WrestleMania entrance list.

The Undertaker is another WWE Superstar who suffered burns during an entrance but continued to wrestle. The ‘Deadman’ suffered third-degree burns at Elimination Chamber 2009 when he got engulfed in flames during his iconic slow, eerie walk to the ring.

The Undertaker kept himself in character despite suffering such devastating burns. He then continued to enter the Chamber, wait for twenty minutes till his entry came, and then wrestled another twenty minutes with blisters slowly popping up on his chest. All we can say is only legends can pull off something like this. And we hope it never happens to anyone else.
