Triple H

On May 21, 2001, Triple H suffered a debilitating injury that threatened to prematurely end his career. During a tag team match, The Game suffered a complete muscle tear in his quadricep. The injury happened when Triple H saved his tag team partner, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, from Chris Jericho’s Walls of Jericho. As The Cerebral Assassin rolled out of the ring, he could barely stand, but in a true testament to his competitive nature, he continued the match.

In fact, once outside the ring, Triple H attempted to Pedigree Y2J through the announce table, but the maneuver was reversed into the Walls of Jericho. Only after learning of the severity of the injury did the WWE Universe fully realize the resiliency and dedication of The Game, making that particular Walls of Jericho hard to watch again.

The injury would sideline Triple H for eight months, but when he returned in January 2002, the WWE Universe – including his fellow Superstars – had a newfound respect for The Game.
