These two got along so well.

What's the story?

WWE's Chief Executive Officer Triple H has paid tribute to the former frontman of heavy metal band Motorhead, Lemmy Kilmister, on the two-year anniversary of his passing away.

Triple H tweeted out the following about his good friend Lemmy, saying that despite his death, 'we will never stop listening' to his legendary music:

In case you didn't know...

When Motorhead began in 1975, Lemmy and Co. soon became one of the most cherished bands in Heavy Metal history, if not the most cherished.

However, it wasn't until many years later that the WWE Universe would develop into one of the biggest section of the group's fans.

This is because in 2001, the then Music Producer of WWE, Jim Johnston, managed to pull off a massive coup by getting Motorhead to record the new theme song he came up with for Triple H, title 'The Game'.

When Triple H came out to the music for the first time, it was instantly a huge hit with WWE Fans and it further made the 14-time World Champion's character trendy. Many would consider it the best WWE entrance tune of all time.

Lemmy and Motorhead memorably performed 'The Game' live on WWE TV the same year at WrestleMania 17 when Triple H battled The Undertaker, and then again 4 years at WrestleMania 21, which Triple H main evented as the World Heavyweight Champion against Batista after Evolution split up.

The band would go on to make two other amazing songs for HHH and the WWE with Johnston; 'The King of Kings', and then later on 'Line in the Sand', which was used for one of the WWE greatest factions of all time, Evolution, involving Triple H, Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista.

Triple H also used the greatest Motorhead song of all, 'The Ace of Spades, as the theme song for the NXT Takeover: London special in November 2015.

The music and wrestling world was devastated when a month later on the 28th of December 2015, it was announced that the legend that was Lemmy had died, at the age of 70.

HHH delivered a touching eulogy at his longtime pal's funeral, which can be seen in this video below.

The heart of the matter

It is heartwarming that even two years on from Lemmy's death, Triple H still takes time out of his busy schedule as head of NXT as well as his CEO duties to remember him with such kind words.

These two shared an awesome and unique bond as a result of their business relationship that seemed just so badass to wrestling fans.

NXT General Manager William Regal also posted this photo a few hours ago of Lemmy with some of the WWE wrestlers from years ago.

What's next?

People will always think of Lemmy at this date for years to come, no matter how busy they are, because he made a big impression on everyone he met and performed in front of.

Triple H has kept using 'The Game' song after Lemmy's death (as well as 'The King of Kings for The Authority) for whenever he is wrestling and appearing on our screens, and will continue to do it to as a way to honour the Motorhead singer and guitarist.

Author's take

Triple H is right.

As even though Lemmy Kilmister is dead, his music with Motorhead will live on forever in the minds and hearts of everyone, especially those who are WWE fans.

I think 'The Game' is the best WWE Theme ever, and it made Triple H stand out from the pack. I love listening to it still whenever Triple H appears on WWE TV (which will something we witness more prominently heading into WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans).

I mean, you aren't a wrestling fan if you haven't once spat out water like HHH did and does when he came/comes out to 'The Game',

'The King of Kings' and 'Line in the Sand' were classics too.

RIP Lemmy.
