Triple H and McMahon Family Celebrate Historic Royal Rumble Victory
Last night, Triple H became a 14-time world champion by winning the historic 2016 Royal Rumble, which saw Roman Reigns defending his world heavyweight championship in the 30-man Royal Rumble match itself. In a surprising ending, Reigns finished in third while Intercontinental champion was the runner-up in one of the more exciting endings to a Rumble match in some time. But even though coming out at No. 30 made it look like Triple H was just waltzing in to capitalize on a weakened field, it’s become clear that The Game was anything but relaxed.
In this video, we go behind-the-scenes to see how Triple H was keeping ready for the Royal Rumble match during the match itself, culminating in the moment when his music hits, and he exits through the curtain to the roars of the crowd (with wife Stephanie McMahon aglow with pride). We then see the aftermath of the Royal Rumble match, as Triple H celebrates his fourteenth world title alongside Stephanie and father-in-law Vince McMahon, gloating for the camera and posing for pictures with the title belt. It’s a cool snippet that advances the overall storyline of the Authority screwing Roman Reigns out of his title, and all without a single word being uttered. Watch the video below:
