Triple H On Rumored Match With The Rock

The Rock and Triple H have battled so many times, but fans still want to see them go at it once more. WWE teased a match several years ago with a promo between the two, but the match never worked out.

While Triple H  does not remember all the details, he recalled trying to put the match together. 

“I don’t remember the details of it, but it was one of those things that Rock and I talked about to the point where we did the backstage promo,” said Triple H to Alex McCarthy [7]. “‘Let’s throw a scene out there and see what happens.’ It blew up, so we talked about it some more.” 

Then scheduling just got in the way. “At that point, we were over a year away from that WrestleMania [8]. It wasn’t until, maybe four months of the following year, we got to that, and Rock goes, ‘it’s just not gonna work. I just can’t. All of my stuff. My movies and everything has changed. I just can’t make it work anymore.’”

The Rock and Triple H can still wrestle, so do not close the book on a potential meeting. The biggest holdup is easily The Rock’s busy Hollywood schedule [9].

“It was what it was. I would’ve loved to have [done] it. It would’ve been a blast to step in there with him one more time and tear it up.”
