WWE legend Triple H has announced his retirement from in-ring wrestling.
Wrestling legend Triple H (HHH) told ESPN that he won’t ever wrestle again.
Speaking to Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take, and sharing in a tweet from the official WWE account (below), Triple H mentioned his time in the ring was over.
The 14-time-world champion teased the retirement earlier today on his personal Twitter account, saying he would be delivering an update on his health and future within the interview.
In an emotional interview, Triple H said he has a defibrillator in his chest after serious heart issues that had him close to death.
Triple H shared with Stephen A Smith that he started to cough up blood, and Stephanie, his wife, noticed it, resulting in him getting checked out. After getting tests, he was in heart failure and had to go straight to the emergency room.

He advised Smith: “So far as in-ring, which I get [asked] loads, I am done. I won’t ever wrestle again. First of all, I have a defibrillator in my chest; it is probably not a good idea for me to get zapped on live TV.”
Triple H is considered one of the best wrestlers of all time, debuting in 1990 and gaining fame as a villain earlier than co-founding the D-Generation X wrestling stable alongside Shawn Michaels, Chyna, and Rick Rude.
Along with the 14 world titles, Triple H is also a five-time Intercontinental Champion, three-time tag workforce champion, two-time unified WWE tag team champion, and two-time European champion. He stays the Chief Operating Officer for WWE as an entire.
