During a recent media call ahead of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, Triple H spoke about his in-ring status and the possibility of having a retirement match.

Triple H explained that he considers the in-ring action to be a bonus as he has various others roles in WWE. Triple H revealed that he often gets calls from Ric Flair, and the Nature Boy tries to convince The Game to have a proper retirement match.

"I'm at the point where to me, the in-ring stuff is a bonus. It's funny—[Ric] Flair calls me all the time to tell me, 'You have to get back in the ring. You have to go to WrestleMania; you have to have that closure and do this, whatever, a 'retirement match.'

Triple H admitted that while he wants to have a retirement match, he just doesn't have the time to focus on the preparations for the highly significant bout.

"There's a part of me that wants to do it, and then there's just a bigger part of me that says, 'I'm so busy 24/7, that to even try and contemplate how to train in the way I would want to train and get in shape—and by shape, I don't mean look—in-shape ring wise so you don't embarrass yourself once you get in there at 52."

Triple H even revealed that he had rejected multiple backstage requests from AJ Styles regarding a match.
