Triple H Discusses Edge/Paige Potentially Returning In The WWE Royal Rumble


Triple H spoke with this weekend prior to NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool II where he addressed rumors about Edge and Paige.

It has been speculated that both popular WWE Superstars could be returning to in-ring competition as surprise entrants in the WWE Royal Rumble. Despite the fact that they both retired due to severe neck injuries, their names have constantly popped up, and Triple H spoke about the speculation.

“When you’re talking about people as talented as Edge and Paige, who wouldn’t want them to return? I’m a fan, just like everyone else, and, yeah, I’d love to see them step into the ring and compete. More importantly than that, though, I’d like to see them live long and healthy lives.” 

Triple H then went on to discuss WWE’s medical system and the fact that the decision for them to return isn’t totally up to Edge and Paige themselves.

“So, with both of them, those would be personal choice for them… No, I shouldn’t say that. Personal choice would be a part of it, then medical choice for the other part. WWE is at a different level. There is no other level, almost, from a medical oversight standpoint.

“Every now and then, I’ll hear somebody else talk about, “Oh, their medical,” or something, and it doesn’t exist. Fact. Just because you have a doctor every now and then doesn’t mean you have a medical protocol, right?”
