Long live the king?

One week after Brock Lesnar unceremoniously announced he was leaving WWE via Tout, his now-injured SummerSlam opponent, Triple H, is set to return to Raw to give the WWE Universe an address of his own. Speculation about whether it’s truly “Game Over” for Triple H has been running rampant for the past week, and it seems like every Superstar except Triple H himself has weighed in on the state of the COO’s in-ring career (FULL STORY).

The rumors have varied wildly, with some Superstars believing The Game will formally announce his retirement and others believing he’ll issue another challenge to Lesnar. The one commonality is that everyone’s talking.

“Anyone as Anxious as I am to hear what HHH has to say tomorrow on #mondaynightRaw ???? #wwe,” Divas Champion Layla wondered on Twitter.

Jerry Lawler tweeted that the locker room is abuzz with anticipation. “I sure hope The Game doesn’t decide to hang ‘em up,” “The King” tweeted, adding, “CM Punk, respect = HHH.”

The normally self-absorbed Prime Time Players tweeted back and forth about The Game’s announcement tonight, with Titus O’Neil suggesting Triple H will want an opportunity at redemption against Lesnar.

“I think after that Physical Fight with Brock,He Wants 2do it again!REMATCH,” the powerhouse Player wrote.

Meanwhile, former longtime Triple H rival Chris Jericho, who himself was forced out of WWE last week on Raw per a stipulation of losing his match against Dolph Ziggler, tweeted words of encouragement to his old foe.

“Heard HHH future will be addressed on #Raw tonight,” Y2J wrote. “My advice to him is, it’s better to go out on your own terms…and go out swinging!"

Remaining radio silent this entire time, however, is the Superstar at the center of this buzz: Triple H. WWE.com reporters left messages on Triple H’s office and cell phone numbers, but those calls have not been returned. For the time being, it looks like the locker room, WWE management and all observers will all have to wait for Triple H to break his silence. Tonight, expect The Game — re-broken arm and all — to set the record straight.
