Triple H took a shot at former undefeated WBC Heavyweight Boxing Champion and knockout artist “The Bronze Bomber” Deontay Wilder in a tweet posted during ESPN’s encore presentation of WrestleMania 30 on Sunday evening.
As noted, ESPN aired the entire WrestleMania XXX pay-per-view on Sunday night and it became a trending topic on Twitter, with several WWE performers and other celebrities and sports personalities commenting on the big event ahead of this year’s taped, two-night WrestleMania 36 spectacular.
Showing support for former WWE performer “The Gypsy King” Tyson Fury, “The Game” used his heavy ring attire, which was actually similar to Wilder’s from the second Fury fight, as the reason he lost the match, which is the same excuse/reason “The Bronze Bomber” gave for losing the second fight against Fury.
“Just as an FYI,” Triple H’s sarcastic tweet began. “That entrance costume was super heavy …. Like 45 lbs ….. My legs were shot…”
The Game concluded, “Only reason Daniel beat me !!!!!!”
Fury, who handed Wilder the only two blemishes on his previously flawless pro boxing record — a split draw in their 12/1/2018 fight and a seventh round TKO loss in their 2/22/2020 rematch — worked the WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view back on 10/31/2019, defeating “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman via count-out.
Check out the comments from the WWE Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, as well as a clip of his entrance from the 4/6/2014 pay-per-view at the Superdome in New Orleans, LA. below.

Nice…#TripleH shows loyalty to #WWE‘s guy, mocking #DeontayWilder for using his heavy ring gear (which is ironically SCARY SIMILAR to #TheGame‘s) as excuse for loss to #WWECrownJewel veteran & #boxing HW champ @Tyson_Fury in #WrestleMania comment
