Triple H and The Rock have a history with each other and are quite familiar in the ring. Even though the two haven’t locked horns in a while, Triple H recently revealed how he’d love to have another match with The Great One if they could make it work schedule-wise.
He also spoke to Facebook Live in India about the kind of relationship he has with The Rock. As it turns out there’s always been some sort of professional competitive nature between the two WWE Attitude Era legends.
“See, it’s always competitive with Rock and I from the very start of our careers. Now he’s using Dwayne Johnson. They call me Paul Levesque. It’s all competitive. He grew a beard. I grew a beard. It’s all competitive. Yeah, we’re just… it’s funny, he and I over the years we’ve had this interesting rivalry at a time in our lives when we were really trying to establish ourselves and make something. It’s what made WWE great and it’s what makes WWE great to this day, it’s that competitive nature.
“We’ve come to a point where we appreciate that competitive nature, but to this day, if he posts something at 4 a.m. on Instagram, he was working out, and I’m like, ‘oh man, I can’t take the day off today. I’ve got to train too. Rock trained.’ Yeah, I don’t know what it is. We’ve laughed about it with each other, but there’s still something about our relationship with each other. We get along great, talk business and the things that he does intersecting with WWE.”
But no matter how busy The Rock might be with his nonstop schedule Triple H still spoke about how The People’s Champ will always be a WWE Superstar at heart.
“Do you know the one thing about The Rock is that he’s in Hollywood, he’s making movies, and doing a million different things, but in his heart, he’s still WWE. And if you’re a fan of his, don’t ever think differently because I know how he is.”
Knowing how well Dwayne Johnson and Paul Levesque know each other at this point and how much they love to top each other in the professional realm, it makes the idea of seeing The Rock vs Triple is even more entertaining.
