Triple H Undergoes Surgery For “Cardiac Event”
Triple H – also known as Paul Levesque – has undergone a successful procedure following a “cardiac event” according to WWE.
Issuing a statement on its website before sharing it on social media, the full statement from the company in regards to Levesque reads:
“Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, underwent a successful procedure last week at Yale New Haven Hospital following a cardiac event. The episode was caused by a genetic heart issue and Paul is expected to make a full recovery.”
Paul Levesque made his name in wrestling first in WCW as Terra Ryzing and Jean-Paul Levesque before joining the World Wrestling Federation in 1995. He began climbing the ranks and soon found a kinship with Shawn Michaels on-screen with the two forming D-Generation X. The group including Triple H were inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2019.
A fourteen-time world champion in the company, Triple H has competed at WrestleMania in headline matches countless times in his career. The last of those came after his WWE Hall Of Fame induction when he defeated his former Evolution partner, Batista.
In recent years Levesque has made a name for himself as an executive of WWE, holding the position of Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy & Development. He was also the founding father of NXT and has been credited with a lot of the brand’s success over the years as it has seen stars such as Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch to name but a few populate the main roster in the company.
Levesque married his long-time wife and fellow WWE executive Stephanie McMahon in 2003. Together the couple has three daughters – Aurora born in 2006, Murphy born in 2008, and Vaughan born in 2010.
