Rock 'n' Roll lost one of its most iconic figures, and WWE & Triple H lost a friend and collaborater today, when Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead died at age 70.
The Game, who's used the band's music as entrance music in multiple incarnations of his character and who recently sat down with British frontman to secure a song for NXT TakeOver, Tweeted his thoughts shortly after the news broke:
#RIPLemmy One life, lived your way, from the beginning, till the end See you down the road my friend... Thank you for the gift of your sound— Triple H (@TripleH) December 29, 2015
And his wife followed shortly after:
#RIPLemmy Thank u 4 being our friend & 4 leaving all of us w/ a legacy that will last forever. #longliverockandroll https://t.co/SvnwWXUSaJ— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) December 29, 2015
The company itself, who may end up running one of the last interviews with Lemmy if Corey Graves (who joined Trips for their sitdown to secure "Ace of Spades" for the London theme), also played this tribute tonight on Raw:

Wrestler and rocker Chris Jericho also posted his thoughts:
