The Philadelphia 76ers started off the conference semifinals of the NBA Playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks today. Before the game, Triple H showed up to help them ring the bell.

It is a tradition in Philly to ring the bell whenever they need that extra boost. That is were The King of Kings came in today. The WWE executive and former multi-time Heavyweight Champion was there for the game.

Triple H rang the bell and posed for the crowd. It was quite a sight. It also gave a lot of weight to the idea that they should Trust The Process. Yes, Triple H used his signature sledgehammer as well.

They also gave Joel Embiid a custom one-of-a-kind DX t-shirt so he can remember this moment. It was quite an intense atmosphere, to say the least.

You can check out some photos from the event below. We will have to see if the 76ers become a new favorite to win the whole thing. This edition of the NBA Playoffs has already been surprising enough already.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
