Triple H is currently the COO of WWE and he is also a veteran in the world of professional wrestling, having competed in several great matches and countless memorable moments during his time as an active in-ring competitor in the company. Triple H was also furious with a top AEW star.
WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was on a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho. During the episode, he talked about how he ultimately benefitted after Triple H was punished by WWE.
There’s so many things that I just fluked up on because I was never going to be the chosen guy,” Austin stated. “Guys that Vince [McMahon] had brought in and said, you’re going to be a world champion. Ain’t nobody ever told me that. I went to Vince’s house three times before I finally signed with New York because I needed the money. When I won King of the Ring, it’s because those guys (The Kliq) hugged at The Garden.
“Those guys (Scott Hall and Kevin Nash) south. Shawn was the World Champion. Triple H was going to win King of the Ring. He (McMahon) couldn’t punish his World Champion, who already had a bad attitude. So he punished Hunter. I was walking across the parking lot to TV in Boston, Worcester and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Vince says behind me, ‘Hey Steve, you got a second?’ I just want to let you know in two weeks, you’re gonna win King of the Ring.’ I said, alright, cool. So it was just these fluke things that would happen.”
