Triple H suffered an injury back at Crown Jewel when he and Shawn Michaels teamed up to take on The Brothers of Destruction in what was Michaels’ first wrestling match in more than eight years. Triple H took a bump over the top rope and to the outside which looked pretty nasty, but he was still able to recover and finish the match like a true professional.
It was later revealed by WWE that their COO had suffered a pectoral tear and was forced onto the sidelines, which put his match at WrestleMania against Batista in doubt. The Game recently revealed that he would be undergoing surgery to fix the tear and provided an update following his procedure yesterday.
Out of surgery, happy to report all is well. Thanks to excellent medical care of Dr. Dugas and his team and all the well wishes, messages, tweets, and texts I got over the weekend.

Triple H stated that he was now out of surgery and the procedure had gone well, which is where he stated that his road to recovery starts now. The WWE COO was slated to be part of an on-going rivalry with Shawn Michaels and Undertaker as well as having his own feud with Batista heading into WrestleMania, which gives him a reason to push forward.
It is thought that his recovery would take around five months which would take him into WrestleMania if he was looking to make a huge return, but it wouldn’t be the first time that Triple H has defied the odds and been able to return much sooner than expected.
Next year’s WrestleMania is already missing the star power of Roman Reigns, which means that Triple H will want to be part of the show, which is seemingly falling apart more and more each week, but it remains to be seen as to whether or not he will be cleared to return in time.
