Triple H Suffers Cardiac Attack
In worrying news, legendary performer and NXT head honcho Triple H had a health scare this week. WWE released a statement giving brief details.
“Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, underwent a successful procedure last week at Yale New Haven Hospital following a cardiac event. The episode was caused by a genetic heart issue and Paul is expected to make a full recovery,”
Levesque is 52 years old. He has numerous accolades as a wrestler, being a 14 world champion, with Royal Rumble and King Of The Ring victories to his name. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of D-Generation X in 2019. He last wrestled in 2019 as well, with his last televised match being against Randy Orton at Super Showdown that year in Saudi Arabia. Following that, he teamed with Shinsuke Nakamura on a Tokyo house show, defeating Robert Roode & Samoa Joe.
Recent years have seen Triple H transition from an in-ring talent to a man with considerable influence behind the scenes, spearheading the revamping of NXT as WWE's developmental territory in 2012. His vision for NXT has been widely praised as an alternative to WWE's main roster product, bringing in heralded international and independent stars to boost NXT into a viable 3rd brand for WWE, gaining a 2 hour slot on the USA Network. The NXT brand has led to the development of many current top stars in WWE, including Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Charlotte Flair.
Many stars have expressed support and well-wishes for "The Game" since the news broke, including current Raw star Mustafa Ali, old HHH rival Mick Foley, and former NXT star/current AEW star Andrade El Idolo.
Wishing Triple H all the best as he recovers from this incident.
