Triple H has had a long and very good career in the WWE. It isn't over yet as we all saw on Raw when he was announced as the 5th member of Team Raw for the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view.
For someone that has ben around as long as he has and has been as important to the WWE for the last couple decades, you would think that The Game would hold, at least a few, WWE records. But in fact he doesn't.
He is however, near the top of the list on quite a few different WWE records and it doesn't look like he will be hanging up his wrestling boots anytime soon. Even at the age of 48, there are still a few records that could possibly be within his reach. Here are 5 of them.
This one won't be easy, but it could happen. the current record holder is Kane with 21 Royal Rumble appearances whereas Triple H is currently standing at 15 (tied with Goldust in case you were wondering).
However, as we all know the Royal Rumble only happens once a year which would mean Triple H would be at least 55 years old when he made his 22nd appearance. That's assuming Kane doesn't make another appearance and add to that 21 number.
But HHH is in great shape, still has heat and the WWE does love to use him for PPVs (as is evidenced by his surprise inclusion in this year's Survivor Series). That puts this record as one he could end up breaking.
This one is similar to the Royal Rumble appearances record in that it will mostly have to do with how much longer Triple H is wrestling for.
The record is - of course - held by The Undertaker who has had a total of 24 WrestleMania matches. Triple H is actually in second place on this list with a total of 20 matches on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
There have already been rumors about HHH wrestling at next year's WrestleMania in New Orleans which would only put him three behind The Undertaker. If The Undertaker was still wrestling into his 50s there is no reason why HHH won't be as well.
Okay, so we know this one isn't going to happen. However, it is actually even more within reach than either of the previous two records we have already discussed.
Now, normally being only two championships away from tying the record and three away from setting the record would seem very close. But, we all know that at some point Cena is going to get his 17th title and sole possession of the record, and they aren't going to let anyone else get that record for a long, long time - if ever.
So, while technically Triple H could break this record - he won't!
The current record holder for this one is Kane, with 171 PPV appearances. Next is The Undertaker at 166 and in third position is Triple H with 164 appearances. Just looking at those numbers, this one is more attainable than the three previous ones we have talked about.
While he is seven behind Kane, he also has a couple years on The Big Red Machine. With so many PPV events throughout the years the odds are that The Game will be appearing in a bunch more over the next few years while Kane's appearances will surely not be as frequent. That would give The Cerebral Assassin the ability to close the gap and eventually pass Kane into the record books.
Of all the records Triple H could break this is the one that he is the closest to breaking. And that is because, as it stands now, HHH is tied for the record with the currently one-who-shall-not-be-named Hulk Hogan. Both men have main-evented WrestleMania seven times. That means, unlike the other records, HHH just has to get one more and he will break the record and stand alone at the top of the list.
So, will he do it? Well, as we discussed earlier, there are already rumours about him having a match at WrestleMania 34. Will it be the main event? Probably not. But it was only two years ago at WM 32 that The Game was part of the main event match - losing his WWE World Heavyweight Championship title to Roman Reigns.
The WWE has used HHH in the past to put over younger talent at WM main events and there is definitely a chance that they will want to put him in the top match of the top show again in the future. So, don't be surprised if Triple H does become the Superstar with the most WrestleMania main event matches in the history of the organization.
