The last time Triple H won a match at WrestleMania was exactly five years ago today at WrestleMania XIX at Safeco Field where he faced off with Booker T. He’s currently on a three match Mania losing streak, losing to Chris Benoit, Batista and John Cena in consecutive years.
Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun has a live report from WWE’s Hall of Fame ceremony last night, which you can check out at this BaltimoreSun.com. Triple H apparently took a jab at The Rock when he was giving the induction speech for Flair. Triple H said, “No disrespect to The Rock — oh, I guess I’m supposed to call him Dwayne now — but before there was “trailblazing and eyebrow-raising,” there was “kiss stealin’ and wheelin’ dealin’.” And in case you didn’t notice, a number of fans didn’t show up in “business attire” at the event, which was dictated on the ticket stub. Eck wrote: “Many of the fans at the Amway Arena last night should be ashamed of themselves, as they exhibited all of the negative traits of the stereotypical wrestling fan. They were extremely disrespectful of the speakers and they behaved like they were at the arena to see a house show. They dressed like it as well, even though the dress code was “business attire.”
In a WrestleMania preview spot on Comcast promoting the event, E!’s Catt Sadler notes the show’s “two main events” as Triple H vs. John Cena vs. Randy Orton and Floyd Mayweather vs. Big Show. Clips promoting the two matches air during the spot. Absolutely no mention is made of the Undertaker vs. Edge World Heavyweight Championship match.
