One of the biggest stars from the “Attitude Era” of WWE reveals he will no longer be in the ring following an illness that almost took his life.
Been a while since I’ve given an update on my health and what the future has in store for me.

“I had viral pneumonia. My lungs were inflamed, and as the next couple of days went on and I got home, it got increasingly worse,” Triple H explained. “My wife [WWE executive Stephanie McMahon] saw some blood and stuff that I was coughing up, and I went and got checked, and it was coming from the viral pneumonia, but I had fluid in my lungs. I had some fluid around my heart so they followed up on it and did an EKG and Echo and everything. Basically, the way your heart pumps out 55-60 percent of your ejection fraction is a good number. I was at 30 percent. […] I won’t—I would never wrestle again. First, I have a defibrillator in my chest. Which, it’s probably not a good idea for me to get zapped on live TV.”
It was a legendary career that saw multiple championships in different divisions. He was also apart of some of the greatest groups in history such as DX. What is more important, is he is here to live life after wrestling with his children and wife.
Check out the reaction to the news on social media below.
I grew up a Triple H fan, I was always a big fan of his work as a wrestler than seeing him lead the reimagining of NXT. A lot of my favorite memories involve HHH. Happy he was able to do so much. I wish him nothing but the best with his health. ♥ pic.twitter.com/7G56CypZJ8
