Triple H has publicly apologized to Paige over a “terrible joke” he made about her during a press event in the UK.
In case you missed it, a clip surfaced this week in which Triple H was asked about a possible return to the ring for either Edge or Paige.
“I’m a fan just like everyone else,” he replied. “I would love to see [Edge or Paige] step into the ring and compete. More importantly than that, though, I would like to see them live long, healthy lives. You know, Edge has kids. Paige—maybe—she probably has some she doesn’t know of.”
Frustrated by his comment, Paige spoke out via Twitter and said, “Even my boss jokes about me.. no wonder you guys still do it too.”
She elaborated on her feelings a few days later during a different press event in the UK and told reporters, “I was a little bit perplexed, a little bit taken back, because he’s someone I truly look up to and he’s always been very respectful. So I just feel like he kinda got caught up, maybe, in a joke … but I just don’t think it was appropriate to joke about.”
Triple H addressed the matter Wednesday afternoon via Twitter, writing: “I’ve reached out to
[Paige] to apologize. I made a terrible joke and I’m sorry if it offended her or anyone else.”
