Triple H expresses gratitude in first public statement since heart procedure

Two weeks ago, the wrestling world was surprised to learn that Triple H had undergone a “procedure” to address “a genetic heart issue” following “a cardiac event”. The report, which came courtesy of WWE, said everything went well. The Game was expected to make a full recovery.

Since then we haven’t heard much, aside from a rumor about wrestlers being told not to talk shop with Trips if they reached out to wish him well.

Yesterday (Sept. 21), we heard from the man himself for the first time in a while. His message was positive all around, with a special shout out to his NXT family for their love, support... and snacks.

A lot’s been going on with the formerly black-and-yellow brand in Papa Haitch’s absence, but word is his people (like Shawn Michaels) are still handling all the day-to-day. It’s unclear when he’ll be back on the job, but the important thing is his recovery sounds like it’s going well.
