WWE’s Executive Vice President for Talent Relations and Head of Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque had a talk with the folks from LADBibleTV on a number of topics such as how the plans between himself and WWE legend The Rock changed and they ended up never having a Singles Match at WWE WrestleMania.
Triple H said:
“We never sort of had that defining WrestleMania moment. A few years ago, we teased he and I wrestling one more time […] he came to me and was like ‘Hey dude, I got one more in me. I wanna do it with you. I want you and I to have that WrestleMania sort of moment, and let’s do it at WrestleMania.’ It turned out that it was for the following year, so we had done this video for it, and we’re ready to go with it, and somewhere along the time of that year his movie career sort of changed. […] He was like ‘Ah man, I’m not gonna be able to do this. The timing just doesn’t work out right and I can’t pass up this other opportunity.’ No problem. But that’s really where we were headed.”
