The cardiac event Triple H suffered last year not only did not allow him to work normally in the office, it also caused his retirement as a professional wrestler. Former WWE World Champion appeared at WrestleMania 38 before the fans and confirmed his goodbye by leaving his luggage in the center of the ring.
That must have been a very different moment for Triple H on that stage because WWE had one last fight planned for him at WrestleMania. This was confirmed by Triple H himself in an interview for Ariel Helwani that was published this weekend, where he revealed that the company planned a fight for him vs. Gable Steveson.
“Being back at WrestleMania and being involved in it again was impressive and amazing. I have a defibrillator in my chest, which is clearly the reason why I am not wrestling, and why I would not wrestle again. A lot of people ask me: ‘Am I upset about that?’ The answer is no. There was a plan for me to do something at WrestleMania 38. I was going to do something with Gable Steveson, try to kick it off and get it going.“.
It should be remembered that Gable Steveson was involved with WWE around WrestleMania 38. He made some special appearances, but never made his debut in a match. However, he had a physical interaction with Chad Gable, a moment that you can see at the top of this news.
It is likely that WWE pinned all hopes on Triple H to boost him on television, just as Ronda Rousey did at WrestleMania 34. Since then, there has been much speculation about Steveson and his future, leading to question his debut in WWE and ensure his return to Olympic wrestling.
Remember that the next WWE PPV is WWE Clash at The Castle and in Solowrestling you will be up to date with all the related news.
