The ending of last night's SummerSlam pay-per-view, which saw Triple H tap out to Lesnar's brutal Kimura hold then emotionally wave goodbye to the crowd after the match, seemingly done with wrestling for good after having his arm broken again, threw the COO's future up in the air. Indeed, some fans were speculating that Triple H was retiring from active in-ring competition to focus on his office duties.

Over at F4wonline.com, Dave Meltzer provides an interesting update on the COO's future following the SummerSlam main event, noting that while Hunter is not retiring, the company is certainly keen on making us think he is. He also hints that we have not seen the end of the Lesnar/Triple H fued.

"HHH is not retiring, but they wanted you to think it's his swan song as part of the story of him building to making his next match mean something. In storyline, Brock Lesnar broke HHH's arm again, which means that they are likely to be rematched as opposed to that being the end of the program."

Interestingly, there have been indications that Lesnar's business with Triple H, and by extension, Shawn Michaels, is not quite done. In fact, Michaels has mentioned on Twitter that he will likely be on Raw tonight in some capacity—to deal with Lesnar—following the former UFC fighter's recent attacks on HBK and his friend.

One thing is for sure: It looks like this storyline is not done.
