"It was shocking and devastating and tragic to all of us."
The man who worked for 18 months to orchestrate Warrior's return to WWE said that he believes the man would say that his most important legacy to the world was his daughters. His legacy from his career was that "if you believe in yourself and that you work hard and you perservere, that anything is possible. And he believed that so much so that he signed that he signed everything he did, whether an autograph or a contact, with 'Alway Believe, Warrior'."
Finally, Triple H was asked about the company's reconciliation with their estranged former star:
Both sides had grown. He had grown as a man, we have grown as people and as a company, and...it was time. It was time to move on and just let the business things that had gone on in the past be past. He is so deserving of being immortalized in the Hall of Fame and to have his moment in front of the WWE Universe and his legions of fans around the globe. I can tell you that meant the world to us, and I know personally, it meant the world to him.
The whole thing was bittersweet. I think if you ask him a career highlight , many people would say a career highlight was WrestleMania VI when he beat Hulk Hogan for the then WWF title...I think he would have disagreed with that now and said the greatest moment of his career was three days ago being inducted into the Hall of Fame with Madigan and Indiana walking him on stage.
