Sean Waltman Talks About Triple H’s Impact On The Business, Recent Surgery

Sean Waltman loves Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

During a recent edition of his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast, the WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about his personal friendship with “The Game”, the impact he has had on he business and shares a text exchange they had after the news surfaced of his recent surgery.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the show where Waltman talks about HHH.

On the impact Triple H has had on the business: “The health of the entire industry outside of WWE probably wouldn’t be what it is right now if it wasn’t for him, which maybe (laughs) that’s why he has heat right now. He picked the whole business up. Picked WWE up, but at the same time, it raised the awareness of a lot of stuff. They have some of it on the Network. They host ICW out of Scotland, things like that. I’m grateful for that because regardless of what somebody corporate might think, that’s good for everyone.”

On his personal friendship with Paul Levesque and a text exchange they had after news of his recent surgery: “I haven’t talked to him on the phone, but we had this running joke, Paul and I,” Waltman said. “We’d be talking forever, be on the phone for an hour or two, and finally, whenever it was time for Paul to get off the phone, he’d go, ‘Are you going to be around later?’ And he never called me later. It was just, it’s time to take this home. I heard the news just like everyone else, and I just texted him, ‘Hey man, I’m glad you’re gonna be around later,’ and he just said, ‘Me too. Love you, kiddo,’ and that’s it. That’s the extent of what I know. I wasn’t gonna say, ‘Tell me what happened.’ I don’t need to know. I just need to know he’s okay [Waltman begins getting emotional].”
