Triple H Reflects On Scrapped WWE WrestleMania Plans With The Rock
Triple H talks about never having a WrestleMania showdown with The Rock.
In a recent interview on the LADBible TV YouTube channel, Triple H talked about scrapped plans that would have seen he and The Rock clash one more time at a recent WrestleMania. He explained:
"We never sort of had that defining WrestleMania moment. A few years ago, we teased he and I wrestling one more time [...] he came to me and was like ‘Hey dude, I got one more in me. I wanna do it with you. I want you and I to have that WrestleMania sort of moment, and let’s do it at WrestleMania.' It turned out that it was for the following year, so we had done this video for it, and we’re ready to go with it, and somewhere along the time of that year his movie career sort of changed. [...] He was like ‘Ah man, I’m not gonna be able to do this. The timing just doesn’t work out right and I can’t pass up this other opportunity.' No problem. But that’s really where we were headed."
Despite feuding multiple times in the Attitude Era, the pair never had a singles match at WrestleMania. They did appear in the same main event at WrestleMania 2000, a Four-Way Elimination Match alongside Mick Foley and the Big Show, which was won by Triple H when Vince McMahon turned on The Rock.
