Triple H requires surgery after Lesnar attack
Following Brock Lesnar’s vicious application of the Kimura Lock on Triple H’s left arm Monday night on Raw SuperShow, the WWE COO will require surgery, WWE.com has learned.
The catalyst for this shocking assault was Triple H’s in-ring declaration that Raw and SmackDown General Manager John Laurinaitis did not have the authority to grant the returning Lesnar the lofty demands made prior to the behemoth’s clash with John Cena at Extreme Rules. After Lesnar erupted and targeted The Game’s left arm, the COO could be heard saying “it’s broken” as he was helped up the ramp and out of the arena. X-rays later confirmed Triple H’s self-diagnosis.

WWE medical officials were initially optimistic that the fracture in Triple H’s left arm could be treated non-invasively, but further examination revealed that the break, in addition to severe ligament and tendon damage around the elbow, would necessitate surgical repair.
As of this writing, it is not yet known how the WWE Board of Directors will respond to this sinister assault or what consequences await the former UFC champion. Rumors and speculation continue to swirl not only around the WWE Universe, but also the WWE locker room.
