After a very successful Royal Rumble, Triple H refused to be shamed when asked about his father-in-law and former WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.
The Game, real name Paul Leveque, who is head of creative at the company, was asked how much he knew about the sex-trafficking allegations against McMahon before the lawsuit came to light this week.
‘I choose to focus on the positive. Yes, there is a negative, but I choose to focus on the negative,’ he replied.
McMahon, 78, initially retired in the summer of 2022 amid a series of allegations of sexual misconduct. He tried to return to the company six months later, but Triple H, Vince’s daughter Stephanie and president Nick Khan all voted against his return.
The founder would eventually force his way back, but he has never retained the all-encompassing power he once produced.

McMahon stepped down this week as Executive Chairman of TKO – the company formed by Endeavor after the $21 billion WWE and UFC merger in September – due to sponsors pulling out of WWE in light of Janel Grant’s suit.
Grant accused the 78-year-old billionaire of sex trafficking and claimed he defecated on her head during a threesome, among other things.
Grant, who previously agreed to a $3 million settlement in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement in 2022, filed a new lawsuit this week against McMahon, the WWE and a former executive.

In that filing, obtained by DailyMail.com, Grant claims that McMahon stopped making payments after the initial $1 million installment, and she is now trying to void that agreement.
When asked what WWE is going to do to make sure all employees feel safe and this kind of thing won’t happen again, Triple H simply said it all.
‘Everything is possible. This is a very important thing for us, a very important topic. So everything is possible.’
When asked if he had read this suit this week when it became public, HHH said he had not.
‘I didn’t. I think Cody mentioned it. We all found out in real time when you did.’
