As previously noted, WWE’s website acknowledged Triple H accompanying Floyd Mayweather to the ring for Mayweather’s boxing victory over Miguel Cotto Saturday night in Las Vegas. The article features comments from Hunter speaking on his appearance and on his friend, Floyd Mayweather.
“I’ve been friends with Floyd since [WrestleMania XXIV],” Hunter said. “Quite frankly, I was just going to see fight, and then he sent word that he wanted to see me before the fight and asked if I wanted to walk down to the ring with him.”
Hunter also mentioned his own company creating “misinformation” regarding his storyline-driven injury at the hands of Brock Lesnar. “It wasn’t just one thing that was broken,” said Triple H. “It’s complex and that’s why there’s misinformation.”
“I have to be able to take the brace on and off [to rehab],” he added. “Trust me, it was the last thing I wanted to wear while I was in Vegas trying to have a good time.”
Describing his friend’s victory Triple H said, “I thought it was a phenomenal fight, I think Floyd rises to the occasion of every fighter he fights.”
