After a bad joke turned viral, Triple H has reached out to former champion and current WWE Backstage panelist Paige to apologize for his recent, controversial remarks.
The incident occurred during a recent round of media interviews promoting NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool II, where Triple H was asked about the possibility of Edge or Paige returning to the ring for the 2020 Royal Rumble matches.
“I’d love to see them step into the ring and compete,” he said. “More importantly than that, though, I’d like to see them live long and healthy lives. Edge has kids. You know, Paige maybe — she probably has some she doesn’t know of…”
The retired WWE star was clearly unhappy over the jab at her previous sexual history, tweeting out, “Even my boss jokes about me.. no wonder you guys still do it too.”
I’ve reached out to @RealPaigeWWE to apologize. I made a terrible joke and I’m sorry if it offended her or anyone else.
