Triple H shocked the wrestling world when he announced his retirement from pro wrestling. Paul Levesque appeared on ESPN’s First Take to announce that he’s done with pro wrestling. Naturally, many people have a lot to say about this as his name trended like crazy.

Hunter firmly stated that he is never going to wrestle again because he has a defibrillator in his chest which makes him vulnerable in case of any further damage.

At one point during the interview, The Game said he was “nosediving and sort of at the one yard line of where you want to be for your family and your future,” which made him realize that it was time to retire from pro wrestling. Olympic Gold Medalist and former UFC Dual Champion Henry Cejudo took to social media to congratulate the Kings of Kings on a legendary career.

From one guy who knows a little something about gold to another, congrats @TripleH on a legendary career. Today, Triple C bends the knee to Triple H. #ThankYouTripleH #Respect 👑

What’s next in store for Triple H remains to be seen. The Cerebral Assassin is widely considered to be one of the greatest heels of all time and was someone Vince McMahon routinely relied on during the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression eras.
