      Why is Arda Öcal's audio volume so low?

      So Triple H is familiar with The Work of Legendary Artist Frank Frazetta? I'm impressed. I wouldn't be surprised to find out HHH has read The Robert E Howard Conan Stories.

    Fun Fact: 2020 is the first year since 1991 that Triple hasn't wrestled in. P.S. For context, Triple H started wrestling in 1992, and since then has competed at least once every year, with 2019 being his last (so far).

    It’s such a weird coincidence that the wrestler that most loved wrestling is now running wrestling. This is always kinda strange for me.

    Taker, Shawn & HHH are truly three of the best story tellers of our time. Bonafide Legends and Icons. So proud of how far they’ve come and the legacies they left behind. Never thought over 20yrs later, after watching them during the Attitude Era, that they would last this long. Their era will always reign supreme in a class of their own!

    If they ever make a God of War movie or show HHH would be incredible.

      @Jose Aguilar I can agree with that. One and done HHH would be great.

    • Jose Aguilar

      If they are making 1 god of war movie, HHH is perfect but if it’s a trilogy probably not since HHH age might be an issue

    Didn’t WWE & Triple H fire Arda from his team, this is awkward. 😂

      That was years ago (2016). He's doing well, since he always worked for multiple companies at the same time. I think he was originally doing a Canadian-only show "Aftermath" covering WWE, and was then brought in as presenter/interviewer for WWE proper. He does e-sports, hockey and other stuff too.

      Undertaker is the greatest of all time. Triple H even said the Undertaker is the greatest of all time.

    Should of asked why it took him 20 minutes to pin Booker after 1 pedigree, and after burying him on TV leading up to Wrestlemania.

      @offwick I think I was right.

      @Uriz Blue23 most stupid*

    • Ryan Lacy

      Should ask why some fans can't get over things that happened 15 years ago, when the wrestlers themselves obviously let it go a long time ago

    • Uriz Blue23

      @offwick that is the stupidest thing I ever heard.

    • offwick

      Because booker was a WCW guy, and he was in that spot to make H look like a unstoppable monster. This is wrestling, not politics you goof.

    Edge vs HHH wrestle mania retirement match or AJ styles

  • Pauljackson1988

    His final match if it's to be at a Wrestlemania it should be him either putting over one of the top Main Event stars in nXt Ciampa, Gargano, Adam Cole etc. Or Triple H vs The Rock one on one, one final time. Anything else is totally unacceptable.

      @Wes Yes You know how Brad Pitt has won an Oscar? Do you think he shouldn’t get one because a movie is scripted? No. Because just because something is scripted, doesn’t mean it’s going to get over with people. It’s simple as that.

    Without a doubt the Wrestlemania 17 match he had with the Undertaker was the best! Both where still performing at a high level.

    • fmthebaron

      @BROK because HBK made it better just being there as the ref.

    • BROK

      I personally liked their 28 match the best

    • PeleisLegend

      Nah, it ain't 2012 or 2011. It was great but 2011 and 2012 had more elements to it

      jakeinator722 the product from the past is what’s keeping wwe alive today it won’t be long till that catches up to them. They have no creativity today they literally redo scripts from the past and god knows how many times they will have to keep recruiting Triple H or Undertaker for one more Wrestlemania

    • jakeinator722

      Yet, they're still a billion dollar company with massive TV deals. Your opinion is wrong and irrelevant, you nerd.

    Triple H VS Goldberg make it happen so Goldberg can retire same time as him for GOOD!! They gotta finish what they started in 2003 at Unforgiven PPV

    • SoLiX

      Goldberg is garbage. The same two moves man. He needs to retire already.

    • MMG

      @Ryan Mclarney HHH was supposed to have the retirement match with AJ Styles but couldn’t because his schedule was to heavy and had no time to get into wrestling shape

    • Ryan Mclarney
      Ryan Mclarney

      Goldberg can't compete at a high level and can't go to distance anymore tho, if you look back at his last few matches all he does is a bunch of spears and all he's able to take from the other wrestler is there finisher as well. His matches only last about 5-7 minutes


      Triple H is the Boss
