Triple H is one of those confirmed names for Wrestlemania season. Over the last two decade, this name has always been a constant at the biggest event of the year. With the 35th edition of the show coming up, the expectations are mounting about the upcoming big match featuring him. But an injury put a question mark to this.
As WWE has confirmed earlier, Triple H suffered a torn pectoral muscle at the Crown Jewel PPV. It was the second big event in 2018 that took place in the country of Saudi Arabia. Triple H and Shawn Michaels teamed up against The Undertaker and Kane. The returning match of HBK turned out to be successful as D-Generation X picked up the win.
But it did leave a big fallout as Triple h picked up the above-mentioned injury. Kane threw him over the top rope forcing him to digest a bad landing. He continued to perform in the match being a veteran and eventually ended the match performing his finishing move, Pedigree. But we were in doubts whether he would be okay in time to perform at Wrestlemania.
Going by the recent words from The Game himself, we might get a hint that he is recovering as quickly as possible. In fact, the doctors have cleared him to get back into the training sessions, as well. It means that he can start preparing for another marquee match at the biggest event of the year.
Triple H had a recent appearance in an NXT media conference call and gave an update on his body condition. As stated by him, the medical team has given him the clearance to start training sessions. It happened just prior to the Royal Rumble weekend which leaves him room to be okay in time for Wrestlemania 35.
Here’s what he had stated, (courtesy iwnerd.com)
“I just got cleared to actually start training. Anyone that has been seriously injured knows the difference between rehabbing for a couple hours a day and then actually training is the difference between trying to get better and to better yourself.
I sit here right now extremely sore from that training. One week ago, I got the clearance, so training has been stepped up. I feel good”
As you can see, his body is still feeling the effect of the surgery. It will take some time before he gets back to match condition. A torn pectoral muscle takes almost six months to heal up. In this case, Triple H should be okay to compete even before the estimated time span. We will see which opponent will be waiting for him at Wrestlemania 35.
