What's the story?
Everyone loves a good nostalgia match in WWE and The Rock vs Triple H would be a big one.
The WWE COO recently spoke on Facebook while in India where he opened up about the kind of interesting rivalry he has with "The People's Champ".
In case you didn't know...
The Rock and Triple H spent a good amount of time in the ring with each other and shared a locker room on many nights during WWE's Attitude Era.
As they stepped away from the ring, each man stayed in shape, which makes people wonder when we'll see them perform once again.
The heart of the matter
Triple H recently spoke on Facebook when he was asked about his relationship with The Rock. The WWE COO explained how he and The Rock started their careers being competitive with each other.
When The Rock changed his professional name to Dwayne Johnson, Triple H started going by his real-name Paul Levesque, and the competition didn't stop there. They both grew out facial hair after each other as well. Triple H went on to reveal he had an "interesting rivalry" with The Great One.
But Triple H went on to credit the success of WWE to this kind of competitive nature inherent in the business. However his back and forth with The Rock might take it to another level entirely.
"We've come to a point where we appreciate that competitive nature, but to this day, if he posts something at 4 a.m. on Instagram, he was working out, and I'm like, 'oh man, I can't take the day off today. I've got to train too. Rock trained.' Yeah, I don't know what it is. We've laughed about it with each other, but there's still something about our relationship with each other. We get along great, talk business and the things that he does intersecting with WWE."
But even though The Rock might be very busy working on films and promoting another project about to be released, "The People's Champ" will always have a piece of his heart reserved for WWE.
"Do you know the one thing about The Rock is that he's in Hollywood, he's making movies, and doing a million different things, but in his heart, he's still WWE. And if you're a fan of his, don't ever think differently because I know how he is."
The Rock and Triple H are incredibly successful in their respective careers. But as time goes one, it's great to know these two WWE legends of the Attitude Era are still motivating each other.
As much as I'd love to see Triple H and The Rock tangle in the ring, it would have to be a WrestleMania match which is tricky schedule-wise for The Rock.
Besides, a match of that magnitude would certainly need to main event "The Show Of Shows" and WWE really needs to focus on future stars rather than have their biggest event of the year headlined by two former "ultimate part-timers" in their 40's who are just looking to continue with their interesting rivalry on a huge stage.Published 14 Oct 2017, 18:01 IST
