WWE Superstar Triple H Officially Retires from Wrestling at Wrestlemania 38
One of the most influential and iconic Superstars in WWE history, Triple H announced his retirement from in-ring retirement a week ahead of WrestleMania 38 on the heels of a cardiac event he suffered in September 2021. Opening the event, the 52-year-old thanked WWE fans in trademark fashion at the AT&T Stadium before leaving a pair of his boots on the ring, symbolizing his retirement.
Before making his way into the ring, Triple H hugged his daughters at the ringside and climbed up the ring to thank the WWE universe. Fans welcomed him with a thunderous ovation and erupted with chants of “Triple H” and “Thank you, Hunter”.
His last official match in WWE came in 2019, where he battled Robert Roode and Samoa Joe by teaming up with Shinsuke Nakamura. In the meantime, it should be noted that his last appearance in the ring was not an official bout, where he locked horns with Randy Orton.
While the wrestling world witnessed Triple H opening Night 2 of WrestleMania 38, WWE fans took social media by storm with their reaction to the segment. Fans thanked him for the years of entertainment and mentioned that it’s tough to see Triple H leave, given that he did so much for the WWE universe. At the same time, few fans said that WrestleMania 38 marked the end of their childhoods as it marked Triple H, Undertaker, and Stone Cold Steve Austin receiving farewells.
