• Triple H’s WrestleMania 36 Status Revealed
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE Hall of Famer “The Game” Triple H will not have a match at WrestleMania 36.
The last time Triple H didn’t have a match at WrestleMania, it was back in 2007 at WrestleMania 23.
Triple H currently has 23 WrestleMania matches under his belt, only behind The Undertaker (who has been in 26 WrestleMania matches).
The reason behind HHH missing WrestleMania 36 could be the same reason Goldberg is no longer scheduled to compete at WrestleMania 36 – this year’s WrestleMania is already featuring a lot of “special attractions / part timers”.
Below is the list of part-time wrestlers that are scheduled to have a match at WrestleMania 36:
– Brock Lesnar (will defend the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre in the main event)
– The Undertaker (scheduled to wrestle AJ Styles)
– Edge (scheduled to wrestle Randy Orton)
– John Cena (rumored to wrestle Elias, but plans could change)
Also, 10 matches are already planned for WrestleMania 36, and a lot of the top mid-card wrestlers are still unused.
Triple H’s last televised match was at WWE Super ShowDown 2019, where he lost to Randy Orton. His last match was at a WWE Live Event in Japan on June 29, 2019, where he teamed up with Shinsuke Nakamura to defeat the team of Samoa Joe & Robert Roode.
