As he announced earlier today, Triple H sat down for an interview with Stephen A. Smith of ESPN. This was his first public appearance since news broke regarding his cardiac event late last year. The current Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development of WWE announced his retirement from the in-ring competition but he will remain the company behind the scenes as an executive, though specific details regarding his return are unknown. According to Cagematch, HHH’s last match was a tag-team bout in Tokyo, Japan, where he and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Robert Roode & Samoa Joe on June 29, 2019. Triple H’s last televised match was against Randy Orton at the Super ShowDown pay-per-view in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on June 7, 2019.

This past September, it was reported that Triple H, 52, underwent surgery following a cardiac event stemming from genetic heart tissue. During his interview with Smith, Triple H detailed the incident, saying that his lungs had been inflamed. From there, his condition worsened, his wife Stephanie McMahon seeing blood from viral pneumonia. He was then sent to the emergency room, his injection fracture decreasing to the point of heart failure. He was then given an MRI, with the said injection fracture worsening. From there, Triple H formally announced his in-ring retirement, declaring that he would not step back into the ring and that he had a defibrillator in his chest.
