Triple H Would Love to Face The Rock at WrestleMania, But Says There's Been No Formal Talks

During his appearance at the Web Summit in Portugal (via WrestleInc), Triple H spoke about working recent live events and the possibility of facing the Rock again…

On Working Recent Live Events: “This has been a unique couple of weeks in my day job. I really don’t get into the ring anymore, I had a 20-plus year career. I wrestle a couple of times a year now at big events, but we had some illness. I didn’t have it, which is why I was here. But we had some illnesses that prevented some of our performers from coming on this international tour,” he said. “One thing we like to do as WWE we like to always over-deliver for our fans so we hate to kind of promise them something and it doesn’t come to be. If that has to happen, because at the end of the day you’re dealing with human beings, it’s not like if Iron Man doesn’t show up in the movie they just put another guy in the suit and he could do it. With us it’s different, there’s no second-string John Cena, there’s no second-string Roman Reigns. So we had to over-deliver for people,” he continued, “so I dusted off my boots and I’ve been out here, I was in Santiago, Chile and then out here in the UK performing every night in the ring. I was here, coincidentally, in Lisbon, we had a sold-out show here in Lisbon last night and then got up this morning and came here and spoke at the web summit. Put my suit back on and became an executive again.”

On Possibly Facing The Rock Again: “There’s been speculation about a lot of guys. Lately, for whatever reason, there has been speculation about myself and The Rock. I have put it out there, and he has put it out there, that I would love to step in the ring with him one more time, I would love to dance with ‘The Great One’ again,” Triple H said. “If we’re gonna do it we do it on the biggest stage of them all, WrestleMania, but at this point in time there has been no formal conversations had, so I don’t want to get people too excited. But if the opportunity came up, I’d lay the SmackDown on his candy-ass one more time.”
