Triple H - 4 Injuries That Came Close to Ending His Career (and Life)
While having a decorated career that spans close to thirty years, Triple H suffered three dramatic injuries within five years of each other. Two were career-threatening injuries, while another came close to ending his life.
The Injuries of Triple H
A wrestling match can be stopped if an injury occurs, but there have been times where wrestlers finished a match despite the distress they were under due to injury. Such was the case with each of the injuries Triple H sustained.
Triple H Injury #1: Quad Tear (left side)
Triple H went to break up a ‘Walls of Jericho’ hold applied to his partner Stone Cold Steve Austin, and as he planted his left leg, his quad tore.
Triple H Injury #2: An Almost Life-Threatening Throat Injury
This injury sustained in a match against RVD caused an extraordinary amount of pain, and Triple H immediately started kicking against the mat furiously.
Triple H returned to the ring after his first torn quad injury on January 7, 2002. Ironically, on that very same date five years later, Triple H would suffer the very same torn quad injury on his right side.
Triple H Injury #3: A Second Quad Tear (right side)
Triple H Injury #4: Torn Pectoral Muscle
If these injuries weren’t enough, Triple H suffered a torn pectoral muscle during his tag team match with Shawn Michaels against The Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel on Friday, November 2nd, 2018.
