Triple H has had quite the week with public appearances. posted a picture of Triple H and Stephanie posing with Criss Angel and claimed that Triple H had his arm in a brace. His arm is hidden in the picture, but it certainly does not look like he appears to need surgery as WWE is trying to tell the public.

His public appearances continued Saturday night in Las Vegas, when he carried Floyd Mayweather's belt to the ring in his title fight against Miguel Cotto. reported

Floyd Mayweather Jr. had a little extra muscle in his corner this past Saturday in Las Vegas when WWE COO Triple H – sporting a brace and a small sling over his broken left arm – accompanied the undefeated boxing champion to the ring for his highly anticipated bout against Miguel Cotto.

WWE is certainly doing their best to sell Triple H's broken arm, but perhaps they should have him at least wear around a sling to make it look a bit more believable.

It is hard to sell that he needs surgery when he has been seen all around Vegas with nothing more than a brace on his arm. 

Although it appears to be likely that Triple H and Brock Lesnar will fight at SummerSlam, what if the match does not take place until a later date?

It is going to be interesting to see how long the WWE says that Triple H needs to recover from surgery and how long Lesnar will be away from the organization.

It seems that they are buying time for this match. How long will they make everyone wait is the question.

Are we waiting for a match at SummerSlam or will they prolong it even longer till later? 

One thing is for sure though, Triple H might need to go into hiding after his "surgery" if he wants anyone to believe that he is truly recovering.
