Many consider Triple H a legend in the pro wrestling world and one of the most important figures in the company’s history. He was also an integral part of the Attitude Era. His career spanned several World Title reigns and memorable moments throughout the years. Triple H has faced numerous foes during his time in WWE, including John Cena. That being said, it seems he was accused of preventing Maven from getting a push in WWE.

Triple H is also infamous for burying fellow pro wrestlers and there are multiple instances of that taking place, even as early as his DX days. It was said that he even refused to put over D’Lo Brown during an important feud.

Maven, who won the first season of Tough Enough in 2001 alongside Nidia Guenard, went on to join WWE. He competed as an active wrestler for almost four years, during which he held the Hardcore Championship on four occasions. In July 2005, he was released from his contract with the Stamford-based company.

While speaking on Cafe de Rene, Maven talked about his time in WWE. He then accused Triple H of preventing him from getting a push in WWE.


“Listen, who the hell knows? I have my theories. My theory is just Hunter didn’t like me. I actually got confirmation of this at one of the signings I did just a few months ago from Sarge [Sgt Slaughter]. Sarge pulled me aside and I’m catching up with Slaughter and he was like, ‘Maven, I always fought for you.’ It’s like, ‘always fought for you in the writers’ meetings.’ And he was like, ‘there’s one guy holding you back.’ (…) I was like, ‘Sarge, who was it?’ He was like, ‘ahhh I don’t want…’ And I’m like, ‘was it Hunter?’ And he’s like, ‘yeah.’ I was like ‘that motherf**ker,'” he said.

“And for what? Like I’ll never understand it because what did I like threaten him? Like I’ll never understand it. I did nothing but put him over in every… I’ve never did nothing but talk amazing. He’s one of the best wrestlers I’ve ever seen. He’s an amazing character and positioned himself smart in the company. Like what am I gonna do to threaten you in any way? I just never could understand that

Maven has not wrestled in any capacity since 2016, after which he transitioned into working in finance. Perhaps it is too little too late when it comes to him making a return to WWE, but anything is possible.
