The biggest news coming out of WWE this week is that Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff are back in positions of power. They are going to be the Executive Directors of Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live while answering directly to Vince McMahon. Many have wondered how this would affect Triple H since he appeared to be the next in line of power, but he’s been too busy teaming with random superstars at live events.
After the big announcement was made by WWE, fans wondered if Triple H was going to release a statement. The Inquisitr reported on a tweet he sent out that welcomed Heyman and Bischoff to the team and hoped for great success.
Not long after that reveal was made by WWE, the company went to Japan for a tour and multiple events. The cards for these events had some big matches on them and even included the Kabuki Warriors earning a shot at the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.
On Friday night, WWE entered Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan, for two days of live events for the fans. At that event, Triple H joined The Club, as he teamed with AJ Styles and the Good Brothers to take on the team of Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Samoa Joe, and Drew McIntyre.
As reported by F4W Online, this modified version of The Club was successful in their match after Triple H hit Corbin with a Pedigree for the win. During their ring entrance, Triple H did the “Too Sweet” gesture with Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson, which drew a big pop from the crowd.
Of course, Triple H is rather active on social media and he tweeted about his night, and finished it off with an interesting note. Fans know that his in-ring career can’t possibly last too much longer, and he teased that this may be his final time performing in Tokyo.
An amazing night in #WWETokyo. A city I’ve performed in countless times with an incredible roster of @WWE Superstars. An honor to give Mr. Shinma his #WWEHOF Legacy Award and team with The Club.

On Saturday, Triple H was in action again at Ryogoku Kokugikan for another event in Tokyo, and he partnered with another superstar. This partnership came out of nowhere and was strange, but it was a lot of fun to watch.
As reported by Wrestling Inc., Triple H teamed up with SmackDown Live superstar Shinsuke Nakamura to take on the team of Robert Roode and Samoa Joe. Once again, the match ended in a victory for Triple H’s team and the fans were sent home happy.
Triple H is not getting any younger, and his backstage-production work in WWE takes up the majority of his time. This could be the last time he ever wrestles in Japan. If it is, it was a very successful run, filled with some random tag team partners.
