Triple H Provides Further Details On Genetic Heart Disorder

The Game has spoken about the genetic heart disorder that contributed to his recent health scare

During a recent interview with Stephen A. Smith for ESPN, Paul 'Triple H' Levesque detailed his family's history with heart problems and how they contributed to the cardiac event he suffered last September. 

"My dad had a triple bypass at 62, my grandfather passed away at 70 from heart disease. I didn't know, I just found out a couple of weeks prior to that my great-grandfather had died at 52, sudden death. So, it was a genetic issue"

Detailing the extent of his own issues, The Cerebral Assassin said:

"When they got inside, I basically genetically had a 99.9% blockage in my left anterior descending artery, which is what they call 'the widowmaker'. My heart had started to create a secondary pathway, but that was clogged as well. So, I was basically moments away. If I'd have thrown a clot of any type or had any kind of thickening, I was gone"

Due to the health scare and the fact that he is now fitted with a defibrillator, The Game announced his retirement from in-ring competition last week. 

Before suffering from the cardiac event, he had talked with Vince McMahon about potentially wrestling at the upcoming WrestleMania 38 event.

Triple H's last match was teaming with Shinsuke Nakamura to defeat Samoa Joe and Bobby Roode at a non-televised live event on June 29, 2019, in Tokyo, Japan.
