Triple H Details His Ideal WWE In-Ring Farewell Scenario
"It’s not even as much about the wrestling so much one more time. It’s about getting in the ring and tip the cap and saying thank you."
Triple H has admitted the idea of having one, final retirement match does not hold much interest, but would be more intrigued by the ideal of a farewell tour of his favourite venues with WWE.
Triple H's most recent match came in 2019 in Japan, teaming with Shinsuke Nakamura against Robert Roode and Samoa Joe, but The Game has not wrestled an official match that was televised since WrestleMania 35.
The concept of having just one more match, billed as his retirement match, at a future WrestleMania does not hold much appeal to the NXT Executive Producer. However, Triple H says the opportunity to thank the various audiences across the world that he particularly enjoyed working in front of would be a thrilling way to see out his in-ring career.
Speaking to Sports Nation, Triple H said: "It’s not a big deal to me. If you said to me, and I guess maybe I’ll regret one day. Flair tells me I’ll regret it. But I had such a great run, was so blessed to have it and had so many great people to work with.
“It’s so much work and so much pressure. And I guess if I hadn’t found the NXT side of it, the production side of it, maybe I’d feel differently. But I’m at peace with all of it.
"If I was to say would I like to do one more match? Yes. It’s funny; the WrestleMania component is less a factor to me than anything else.
"What I would love to do is, at some point, wrestle at the Garden. A couple weeks later wrestle in Chicago at the All State. Wrestle Staples (Center) one more time. Go to Japan and wrestle there. Go to the O2 in the UK and the Hydro in Glasgow. Make one more trip to those places that stuck out in my career and do that.
"Because to me, Mania and all those things were so cool and so epic. But on the road, the comradery, the different arenas and locations, the fans. To go into them and having those moments where you go to those places.
"And it’s not even as much about the wrestling so much one more time. It’s about getting in the ring and tip the cap and saying thank you. That to me would be even bigger. If you did that and then capped it off with WrestleMania, that would be pretty cool too. But I think something like that would be really cool.
"Now ask me that if I’m traveling from place and I may go ‘I don’t need to do that!’ But in my head, if I’m looking for something cool, that would be it. Have that one little farewell tour, make the global loop, then come back and do one big show here and call it a career. That would be interesting to me."
