Triple H Interview: His Upcoming Return, Having New Opponents, Retirement

The February 2011 issue of WWE Magazine features a lengthy interview with Triple H, who had this to say about the following topics:

His Upcoming return: “If I can’t do this the way I feel like I should be able to, then I want to be done. And I don’t want to come back here and tarnish that. I don’t want to do the nostalgia run where I come out and say I’m the greatest in the world.”

Top WWE Stars Leaving & New Guys Coming Up: “I’d been in the ring a million times with a lot of the guys who left. Now, when you look at Wade Barrett or The Miz, these are guys that I’ve never been in the ring with. Do I know them? Sure, I see them all the time, but from an in-ring standpoint, I just know them the way everybody else knows them. I’ve never had my hands on them.”

When He Will Retire: “There was a time when I would have argued that I was the best in the business. When I don’t feel like I can perform at that level, I don’t want to do it anymore. I don’t want to be just a guy in the ring. I want to be the guy in the ring.”

How his next run will differ from his previous runs: “In the past, my goal was just becoming WWE champion or World Hvt. champion. But, there’s a certain time when you get beyond that. Shawn moved beyond that… I don’t have to be contending for a championship. Undertaker doesn’t have to be in contention. We’ve moved beyond needing a title to prove that we’re the best. That’s where I am now. (John) Cena will eventually be there.”

Triple H also talked about how he and The Undertaker are the last two veterans left in the WWE lockerroom, which is a sharp contrast from when he entered the business. When he first got to WWE, it was “20 veterans and three green guys” on the roster. “Now, you walk into our locker room and there are 30 green guys and two veterans.”
