Triple H would love to stop wrestling

Believe it or not, Triple H isn’t exactly eager to get back in the wrestling ring to work matches in front of gigantic crowds at events like WrestleMania. That’s what he claims, at least, in a recent interview with Crave.

His reasoning makes sense:

"The common belief is that for myself and other guys are that we can't step away from it or can't let it go but I'd love to [laughs]. As much as I enjoyed last year, when the company asks if you want to go out and compete in front of 100,000 people, it's hard to say no because it's a piece of who you are. But at the same time, the workload it creates for you is so massive that it's hard for you to enjoy it. Even the WrestleMania experience, I spent my time going from a business partner to trying to produce NXT Takeover to trying to oversee the television and if talent have an issue, my match is up in two or three matches and there's a talent issue I have to deal with, I'm not out of the pocket. It becomes an intense workplace."

How can he take all those photographs next to indie wrestlers he’s signing and post them to Twitter if he has to actually prepare to wrestle in front of big crowds?

Jokes aside, he’s at least honest enough to say he loves it and wants to enjoy it for what it is without having to worry about his “real job.” We’ll see if that means he won’t be coming back this year, which, looking at current storylines and considering where they may go, this could be the year to sit it out.
