Triple H Accompanies Floyd Mayweather Jr. & Sells Injury Angle
WWE star Triple H accompanied Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the ring ahead of his boxing victory against Miguel Cotto Saturday night in Las Vegas. Triple H, wearing a suit jacket, was carrying one of Mayweather’s championship belts and held it above his head during Mayweather’s ring introduction.
He appeared to sell the arm “injury” he received at the hands of Brock Lesnar with his arm being carried in a sling as he walked to the ring.
Stephanie McMahon was also in Las Vegas for the fight.
Triple H and Mayweather are close friends, dating back to Mayweather’s involvement at WrestleMania 24. Back in 2009, Mayweather spoke about wanting Hunter to accompany him to the ring for an upcoming fight:
“Triple H is one of the greatest guys in the world and represents a whole universe of WWE fans that appreciate what he does. He and his stature are huge and I can’t think of a better person to escort me to the ring for my return to boxing.”
