Triple H Praises WWE Star For Changing The Game

Triple H opens WWE WrestleMania 40

Triple H is proud of a now-former WWE Champion.

While night two of WrestleMania 40 will be remembered as Cody Rhodes’ night, across from him in the ring was a man who will go down as a legend in his own right. Roman Reigns’ World Title run between August 2020 and April 2024 broke records and took the Tribal Chief to heights no one could have imagined.

What comes next for Reigns following his defeat to Rhodes remains unclear, but Triple H wants to acknowledge his recent success.

Speaking at the WrestleMania XL press conference, The Game praised Reigns for how he raised his performance level and “changed the industry” both in front of and behind the camera.

“There is a lot of banter about ‘greatest of all time.’ You can make arguments for a lot of people in that and there are a lot of metrics you can measure, or opinions, whatever that is. If he is not the, he is one of, absolutely for certain, the greatest of all time.

To do what he has done, to overcome all the things in his career and the positioning and the stuff he had to get through and hung in there to get where he needed to be to deal with his physical issues and his health issues. To overcome the pandemic. To overcome everything he had to deal with on the way here, and then to go out there and put on a run like nobody has ever put on before.

A run of epic, epic moments. Epic storytelling. You see that word cinema thrown around a lot. It’s what it really is. It’s changed…there are few guys who have come along in our business where you say during that period of time that they were in it, that they changed the industry. He changed the industry. I mean that in front of the camera. I mean that behind the camera. He’s changed the industry. He’s that good. Can’t say enough good stuff about him.”

Triple H Addresses Stephanie McMahon’s WWE Return

During the same press conference, Triple H addressed Stephanie McMahon’s surprise return to WWE television. After appearing at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on April 5th, McMahon opened night two of WrestleMania 40, discussing her history with the event.

Reflecting on his wife’s return, Triple H said it was good to have her come “home,” while joking about how good she looked.
