Triple H On Possible Match With The Rock At WrestleMania, Current Relationship With The Rock

Triple H recently participated in an interview for Facebook Live while visiting India. Among many other things, Triple H discussed whether he will ever wrestle again, his relationship with The Rock, and whether a future showdown between the two legends has been discussed.

During the interview, Triple H divulged that he will indeed wrestle again.  

"Yes, but you have to watch to see. Eventually, I will get back in the ring. Somebody always calls me out."

With respect to Triple H's relationship with The Rock, 'The Cerebral Assassin' indicated that the Attitude Era tentpoles have a relationship of mutual respect; however, they have always been, and remain, very competitive with each other.

"See, it's always competitive with Rock and I from the very start of our careers," Triple H said. "Now he's using Dwayne Johnson. They call me Paul Levesque. It's all competitive. He grew a beard. I grew a beard. It's all competitive. Yeah, we're just… it's funny, he and I over the years we've had this interesting rivalry at a time in our lives when we were really trying to establish ourselves and make something. It's what made WWE great and it's what makes WWE great to this day, it's that competitive nature.

"We've come to a point where we appreciate that competitive nature, but to this day, if he posts something at 4 a.m. on Instagram, he was working out, and I'm like, 'oh man, I can't take the day off today. I've got to train too. Rock trained.' Yeah, I don't know what it is. We've laughed about it with each other, but there's still something about our relationship with each other. We get along great, talk business and the things that he does intersecting with WWE."

Triple H shared that even though The Rock is in Hollywood doing his own thing, 'The Most Electrifying Man In All Of Entertainment' is still WWE at his core.  

"Do you know the one thing about The Rock is that he's in Hollywood, he's making movies, and doing a million different things, but in his heart, he's still WWE. And if you're a fan of his, don't ever think differently because I know how he is."

Triple H added, "he can make all the movies he wants, do all the projects he wants, as can I, but there is nothing in the world like standing in front of the WWE Universe and have that whether it's 5,000 or 100,000, just going crazy, and knowing that you have those emotions in the palm of your hand, and can control that. There's no feeling in the world like that. And I think that's just who he is."

Additionally, Triple H revealed that a match against The Rock has been discussed, but making their schedules work has been difficult.  

"About two years ago, he and I did a backstage promo with each other where we talked about WrestleMania and the competitive nature of that and it lit the internet about the possibility of it. It's something we've discussed. It's just making schedules work. He's pretty busy - me too - so it's making schedules work. But look, right place, right time, I'll dance one more time with 'The Great One', Rock."
