WWE Legend Triple H Announces His Retirement


WWE legend Triple H has announced his retirement from in-ring wrestling.

Speaking to Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take, and shared in a tweet from the official WWE account (below), Triple H said his time in the ring was over.

The 14-time-world champion teased the retirement earlier today on his own Twitter account, saying he would be delivering an update on his health and future in the interview.

He told Smith: “As far as in-ring, which I get [asked] a lot, I’m done. I won’t ever wrestle again. First of all, I have a defibrillator in my chest; it’s probably not a good idea for me to get zapped on live TV.”

Triple H is considered one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, debuting in 1990 and gaining fame as a villain before co-founding the D-Generation X wrestling stable alongside Shawn Michaels, Chyna, and Rick Rude.

In addition to the 14 world titles, Triple H is also a five-time Intercontinental Champion, three-time tag team champion, two-time unified WWE tag team champion, and two-time European champion. He remains the Chief Operating Officer for WWE as a whole.
