The Game. The King of Kings. The Cerebral Assassin. WWE Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development Paul “Triple H” Levesque gave an update on his health and future today during his interview with Stephen A. Smith on First Take:
- Says he had a viral pneumonia and his lungs were inflamed. Things got increasingly worse and he began coughing blood, Stephanie noticed it, leading to him getting checked out, and was told he had fluid in his lungs and around his heart.
- He was told to go to the ER immediately after getting the results, as he was in heart failure. “I was nosediving and sort of at the one yard line of where you don’t want to be for your family and your future.”
- While talking about the impact this could have on his children, Triple H emotionally states: “There’s moments in there where, when they’re putting you out for stuff, you think … is this it? Do you wake up from this? That’s tough to swallow.”
