It's time to play the game...But for how long is the game going to last?

Paul Heyman announced on Raw that the match between Triple H and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 29 will be a No Holds Barred match. But another stipulation that was added to the match is that Triple H's career is on the line.

Triple H made his WWE debut in 1995 as Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Since then, he has been one of the most successful WWE Superstars of all time.

To go along with 23 combined WWE titles, Triple H was also in two of the greatest stables in the history of professional wrestling, D-Generation X and Evolution.

You could match Triple H's career highlights up with pretty much any Superstar in the history of the company.  

Currently, he is a part-time wrestler and the company's executive vice president of talent and live events. With this new stipulation tacked on to his match against Lesnar, could this be the end of The Game's career?

The two started their feud last April, when Lesnar broke Triple H's arm after Triple H wouldn't give in to Lesnar's unreasonable contract demands. Then Triple H would challenge Lesnar in July to a match at SummerSlam. The match resulted in Lesnar, once again, breaking Triple H's arm.

Following the match, Triple H appeared on Raw and gave a speech that left his in-ring career in question. But he recently returned to inform the WWE Universe he has no intentions of retiring yet and he wanted to challenge Lesnar at WrestleMania.

Now with his match against Lesnar having his career on the line, the question of whether Triple H's in-ring career is all but over.

Triple H is currently in a perfect situation where he works behind the scenes in the front office of the WWE and wrestles on a temporary basis. He still gets a nice pop from the crowd and is still a big draw.

Having Triple H as an option to be included in a feud or a match in order to help make an event more interesting or even greater is very valuable for the WWE. The only reason Triple H should retire from in-ring competition is if he is personally ready to hang up his boots.

When you think about it, most of the Superstars from Triple H's generation are retired or out of the business. It is very possible that he doesn't have the same desire to compete like he used to and he is ready to strictly work as an executive for his father-in-law's company.

WWE fans might have to start getting ready for the final match in Triple H's career. At the very least, this added stipulation makes Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 29 extremely interesting.
