WWE.com has posted an article with Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels commenting on Triple H’s career being on the line against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 29. Flair said, “If he doesn’t wrestle again, no matter how much time he spends in the office working with the company, he’ll be miserable. He needs to be in the ring. That’s who he is.” Michaels added, “Triple H is a student of this business and has studied and has loved it since he was a young man, and it’s reflected in who he is. And I think he needs to stay active and keep contributing in the ring. He can’t stay backstage or in the office. He’ll get bored with that real fast.”
