Speaking ahead of WWE SummerSlam in Las Vegas, Triple H discussed the possibility of stepping back inside the ropes one more time.
Wrestling returns are very much in vogue in the summer of 2021 after John Cena and a certain Chicago born former WWE Champion arrived back in the squared circle. 2021 has also seen the in-ring return of The Icon Sting, and could potentially see the return of The Rock.
During a live recording of The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Triple H discussed the possibility of making an in-ring return of his own.
While the The Game’s matches have become less and less frequent in recent years, he hasn’t ruled out the illusive ‘one more match.’
Triple H explained that he’d be interested in getting back in the ring, but was also very aware of the sacrifices he’d have to make to make it happen.
“If people want it, if it’s the right thing, it has got to be intriguing. At this point, with as busy as everybody is in WWE from the business side, for me to get ready for WrestleMania, at my age, it’s not something to enter into casually. I’d have to train a lot, a couple times a day for three months or so to get ready for that. In-ring training and everything. I’ve already torn most of everything off my body so I want to make sure I’m not ready to do that again. The training would be the tough part with the schedule, but if it was something people wanted and it was intriguing to me, I would love to do it. I would love to come back and hit a WrestleMania, but I’ve said it before, I would also love to…much like somebody like Cena, you sort of make the comeback and do it, but going to the towns. If I was to do something like that before I called it a day, go to the Garden again. Go to Japan. Go to different countries and have that one more match. Step into those cities where you have 25+ years of memories and opponents and to be able to go out there and do it again in front of them one more time. It doesn’t have to be the same person you go against at WrestleMania. It’s a matter of what we can make happen, but it’s intriguing for sure.”
Triple H hasn’t wrestled since teaming with Shinsuke Nakamura at a house show in Japan in June of 2019. His last match on WWE television came at Super ShowDown the same month against Randy Orton.
Speaking elsewhere in his role as the figurehead of NXT, Triple H addressed speculation that black and gold brand’s philosophy when it comes to signing new talent has changed. The 14-time World Champion said that nothing had changed with NXT’s recruitment, the aim was still to find stars of the future.
