Even with the threat of a forced retirement for Triple H, the veteran wrestler will still continue to wrestle regardless of the outcome against Brock Lesnar.
The 43-year-old will be facing Brock Lesnar in WrestleMania 29. The two fought back in SummerSlam, and Triple H will be looking not only for revenge of the loss against Lesnar, but also revenge for his family and friends. Lesnar attacked Shawn Michaels, Triple H’s best friend, and broke his arm in August.
The fight between the two in WrestleMania is due to a challenge sent from Triple H to Lesnar in March.
The two biggest events on the card other than this fight are The Rock vs. John Cena and CM Punk vs. Undertaker, but neither is nearly as big as this one. Both of these events are exciting, but the outcomes likely won’t surprise anyone.
The reason this fight is so important is because if Triple H loses, he will be forced to retire from fighting. Even if this does happen, it likely won’t keep him out of the ring for long.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Triple H retired. In August 2012, he gave this retirement speech:
That didn’t seem to stop him, as he’s now in WrestleMania eight months later.
In fact, it doesn’t appear that Triple H will be leaving us anytime soon. According to an article on WrestlingInc.com back in March 2012, Triple H signed a contract with the WWE through 2016. The article says that he signed a contract that "went into effect January 1, 2012, and it would expire in March 2016 when will be 46 years old."
There is also the likely possibility that Triple H wins, and therefore, doesn’t have to retire. Even though Lesnar defeated him in their last matchup, this time, Triple H will be looking to get his revenge, and that gives him an edge. Shawn Michaels will be in the corner with Triple H to negate Paul Heyman being with Lesnar, so that there won’t be an advantage for the former MMA fighter.
Triple H is still the favorite in this fight. Even if he loses, don’t expect him to be gone for long. Sooner or later, he will be fighting again.
