There’s little that Triple H hasn’t accomplished in the world of professional wrestling, rising to prominence as a wealthy blueblood and evolving into The Game who’d go on to win multiple World Championships, earning his place in the WWE Hall of Fame. He’s also conquered the corporate world, working backstage as a WWE Executive for years, and in the wake of Vince McMahon’s retirement, he now has complete creative control as Chief Content Officer.
However, the real life Paul Levesque is only in the WWE Hall of Fame after being inducted alongside his fellow members of both The Kliq and D-Generation X. Unlike Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, he has yet to go into the WWE Hall of Fame on his own despite his career being a deserving one.
Kevin Nash Explained Why Triple H Will Never Receive A Singles Hall Of Fame Induction
Speaking on the latest episode of his Kliq This podcast (available early via AdFreeShows), Kevin Nash discussed the recent DX reunion segment on the season premiere of Raw that saw the group celebrate 25 years since adopting their iconic name. Nash said that he doesn’t believe Triple H will ever go into the WWE Hall of Fame on his own because he won’t put himself in there, and he’s the man in charge as Chief Content Officer.
“You know, Paul should be in the Hall of Fame on his own. Triple H should be in the Hall of Fame, but he never will be because he will never put himself in there, and so, the DX situation for him was, ‘Okay,’ they had to get Chyna in; Paul needed to be in and so.”
The DX reunion segment closed out last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, and after paying tribute to Chyna as she sadly passed away in 2016, the four men involved in the segment joked about being old and did their catchphrases for a pop from the crowd. Billy Gunn was not present as he is currently signed to AEW, so the segment consisted of Triple H, Road Dogg, X-Pac, and Shawn Michaels.
Later in the podcast, Nash explained why he thought the segment was exactly what it should be without DX getting physically involved with anyone, adding that sometimes “less is more.”
“I thought they would beat him down to submission. But then, when he cursed right before they broke out of that first segment, I thought, ‘Na, like, he [Triple H] ain’t got time to mess with this sh**.’ He doesn’t. I mean, it was like a shoot. ‘I ain’t got time to mess with this sh**!’ Nobody is going to do anything, no physicality; everybody is beat to sh**. Absolutely, less is more in that situation.”
