Triple H Names His “Greatest Of All Time”

Triple H WWE

Triple H says one WWE star stands above all others.

To the surprise of everyone watching in the arena and at home, John Cena announced his retirement at Money In The Bank.

The sure-fire Hall of Famer signed with WWE in 2000 and debuted on the main roster two years later. Cena went on to become the most decorated WWE star in history, winning every major honour on offer, often more than once.

During the WWE Money in the Bank press conference, Triple H discussed Cena’s importance to the company, claiming that he’s the greatest of all time.

“John’s contributions to the business are second to none. A lot of people talk about legends and icons and so much speculation made about who would be on Mount Rushmore. I don’t care what metric you use, John is at the top of all of them. He’s had an unbelievable career that I’m incredibly proud to have seen it from the beginning.

Seeing him as a representative of this company before he ever got hired and went to OVW. All the way to now, at a point where he’s calling his own shot on how he ends it. Most people don’t get to do that. Most people could do that, and choose not to, I don’t know why that is in our business. That’s the best way. For an athlete, for a professional, for an artist. Whatever you want to call and label what we do. To be able to call your shot in and out, to be able to walk out healthy, happy, and content, that, to me, is where it is.

I’m happy John is able to do that and it’s going to be an exciting 2025. I can’t wait to watch it unfold. It’s going to be an incredible year, and John continues to make a lot of memories and moments for people while they, in return, get to make those memories and moments for him. It’s always been a part of what John does, which is this connective tissue and back and forth with the audience.

I’m excited for him to get to do that for another year and then call it a day on his terms. For me, personally, I want to say thank you to John for everything he’s done for WWE, the superstars here, and what he’s done for sports entertainment and pro wrestling in general. Against his will, he was being called The Greatest Of All Time. He truly is. I believe that,”

Triple H Had Much Less To Say On Vince McMahon

While he had plenty to say about John Cena and his legacy, Triple H was far less talkative when it came to the sexual abuse scandal surrounding WWE and Vince McMahon.

When asked about McMahon, the WWE boss said he was unable to discuss legal matters.

However, Triple H did come to the defence of Damian Priest after a mix-up during his match with Seth Rollins where the referee stopped counting despite Priest not kicking out.
