• Shawn Michaels Comments On Triple H’s Time Off After Heart Procedure
WWE Hall Of Famer Triple H underwent a heart procedure earlier this year and he hasn’t returned to backstage work in WWE NXT yet.
During an interview with Denise Salcedo, Shawn Michaels was asked about Triple H taking time off to take care of his health.
Here’s what HBK said:
“Most of it is me bothering him to be perfectly honest. He has worked so much over the last several years and I don’t think he understood that it becomes your normal.
For him to step away for a little bit, look, that takes getting used to. I went through it obviously, I am one of the rare people that was ready to do it and embrace it. But when it just happens out of the blue and you’re not expecting it, for him to go a hundred miles per hour to nothing was an adjustment.
But I think he is, especially around this time of year, he’s now starting to realize like, ‘hey this isn’t too bad.’
I think he’s bordering enjoying himself now to be perfectly honest. It’s a well deserved break for him, for sure.”
Earlier this month, Michaels revealed how he said to Triple H after the heart procedure:
“I’ve told him, ‘I don’t care how good you are, you stay away, get healthy, concentrate on you’.
The thing is, he put in a fabulous team here, and that’s why it’s able to continue on without him because he put phenomenal people in place.
The team he put in place was prepared for these kind of days, and we want him to get healthy.”
It’s safe to say that Triple H’s in-ring career is over at this point.
