Triple H has shared a graphic photo of the aftermath brought about by tearing his pec ahead of having surgery to repair it.
Suffice to say, the match between D-Generation X and The Brothers Of Destruction at Crown Jewel didn't exactly go well. Three of the four competitors were over the age of 50 and that really showed. To make matters worse, the only Superstar in the match who is yet to hit 50 tore his pectoral muscle halfway through.
What's impressive is The Game eventually continued to wrestle through the injury. For a large chunk of the match, Triple H remained down at ringside after being chokeslammed through an announce table by Kane. That wasn't the move which tore his pec, but it was the one that allowed him to get some medical attention. After he was seen to, he gingerly climbed back onto the apron.
Even though we didn't know of his injury at the time, it was evident that something was wrong. The Cerebral Assassin was barely able to deliver a pedigree. It was a minor miracle that he could do anything at all considering he had torn his pec. If you don't know how serious or painful an injury like that is, just take a look at the photo below which The Game posted on Twitter.

The bruising around Triple H's torn pec is pretty brutal. It looks as if it hurts there and it must have hurt like hell during the match. The King Of Kings posted the pic on Monday afternoon, revealing that he would be having surgery to repair the tear on Tuesday morning. It will take the 14 time World Champion a while to recover. So long, in fact, that he will likely miss WrestleMania.
This isn't the first time that Triple H has managed to fight through an injury that would have rendered other wrestlers useless. The most famous example is when he tore his quad during a tag team match on Raw back in 2001. The Game somehow managed to finish the match and was then on the sidelines rehabbing and recovering for well over six months.
