Shawn Michaels has been operating the WWE NXT 2.0 brand in the months after Triple H took a medical leave of absence. According to John Pollock of PostWrestling.com, Triple H talked on Wednesday at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL. Pollock responded to what was stated by tweeting the following. “According to multiple sources, Paul Levesque was in Orlando today and spoke at the Performance Center. Of the people I heard from, Levesque stated ‘he’s back’ – it is unknown what that entails but that was the wording I was given.”

WWE superstar Paul “Triple H” Levesque has officially retired from in-ring action after suffering a life-threatening health scare in 2021. Levesque, 52, made the revelation during an interview with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. It was the first time Levesque has spoken publicly about his health since WWE revealed in September that he had successfully had a surgery following a “cardiac incident.” Since 2019, Levesque has not wrestled. He works for WWE as the company’s executive vice president of worldwide talent strategy and development. Levesque’s cardiac episode was caused by an inherited heart problem.
Levesque explained to Smith that the health crisis began with him contracting viral pneumonia. Things worsened over the next several days, and Levesque rushed to the doctor when his wife Stephanie McMahon noticed him coughing up blood. Levesque had fluid in his lungs as well as around his heart. Levesque’s ejection fraction (the proportion of blood that leaves your heart each time it contracts) was 30 percent when it should have been 55 percent or 60 percent, according to cardiac tests. Levesque’s ejection percentage had dropped to 22% when he was transported to the emergency hospital.
