The last time Triple H wrestled in the ring, he & Shawn Michaels defeated The Undertaker & Kane at Crown Jewel. But maybe even more noteworthy from that match was that Triple H tore his pectoral muscles and underwent surgery shortly thereafter.
It has been nearly two-and-a-half months since then and Triple H gave an update on his status during a recent WWE Media Call, as seen below:
“I just got cleared to actually start training,” revealed Triple H. “Anyone that’s had a serious injury knows the difference between rehabbing a couple of hours a day and actually training. The difference is trying to get better vs. actually bettering yourself.
“So, I just got clearance to start training and I’m excited about that as I sit here right now extremely sore from that training. It was one week ago I got the clearance so the training has already been stepped up. But I’m feeling good.”
With The Game now back in training at The WWE PC, naturally the speculation will be when he will be able to return to the ring. That could still be a few months from now as the normal full recovery time from his injury is about 5-9 months which would be the time in between WrestleMania & SummerSlam.
But once Triple H does return, you may be able to pencil in Batista as someone who he could feud with. Both former Evolution members will be 50 years old, but they teased one last match during SmackDown 1000 in October.
Also, as previously reported, Batista teased a return to the ring in response to WWE wishing him a happy birthday last week, as seen below:

Batista has stated that 2019 would be his final year in the ring and Triple H has said that he doesn’t plan on wrestling into his 50s.
