• Former WWE Champion Wants To Retire Triple H
While speaking on his Twitch stream, former WWE Champion AJ Styles was asked by a fan if he’d like to face WWE Hall Of Famer Triple H at some point.
The Phenomenal One said that he’d be interested in wrestling The Game in his last match.
“Should I throw it out there and send it out there that I’d be his last match. I would love to do that. I’ll let him know I’d do that with him. Him and I have been in the same ring together but we were on the same team. It was when we were in Japan. It was basically The O.C. and Triple H, that was fun.”
Styles wrestled The Undertaker in his retirement match at WrestleMania earlier this year. On the other hand, Triple H wrestled his last PPV match at Super ShowDown 2019 in Saudi Arabia, against Randy Orton.
