In this weeks episode, Paul Levesque [more popularly known as Triple H] finally makes his appearance on the Industrial Strength Show!
Triple H is a 14-Time World Heavyweight Champion in WWE [World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.]. Not only that, he is also WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative. Needless to say, he’s a busy man.
Joe got to sit down with Triple H last Friday at Madison Square Garden [in between multiple meetings and before his Main Event match] to discuss a wide variety of topics that included Training, Nutrition, Wrestling, Life, and Productivity – just to name a few.
This 1hr 15min discussion is informative, entertaining, and just downright badass!
