Additionally, Triple H revealed that he went to The Undertaker for advice when he started dating Stephanie McMahon. Below are some highlights.

Triple H on seeing The Undertaker for advice when he started dating Stephanie McMahon: “When I was dating Steph, and people were just starting to find out, Taker was one of the people I saw for counsel. A lot of people were very critical of it, but he was a steady, trusted voice. Thats really what hes always been for me.

On how The Undertaker was a groomsman at his wedding: Thats where we always were, so it made the most sense to me to ask there. I pulled him aside and said, We have a wedding coming up, and Id be honored if youd be one of my groomsmen. The only people I thought of asking were the people I thought of [as] brothers to me, and the majority of those people are from this business. This is my life, and hes like a brother to Steph, too. The Undertaker is larger than life, and you can feel that presence in the ring. But there is also the human being, and Ill always treasure our friendship.

Triple H on if The Undertaker gets inside his own head: How can he be inside his head? Hes The Undertaker. The same thing used to happen with Flair, and I used to say all the time to him, Youre the only guy here that doesnt know youre Ric Flair. Whenever I saw that with Taker, I had only one piece of advice for himand it was, Remember who the f— you are.

His thoughts on The Undertaker retiring: Someone asked me the other day, Do I think he should retire? Ive also been asked, If he stays retired, shouldnt he stay retired? Will he come back in two years? Wont that be a mistake? When it comes to all that, I can only give my opinion. He represents everything amazing about our business. There is a uniqueness to it; hes different from any other character. Thats why I think Mark Calaway should be able to do whatever the f— he wants. Hes earned that right.
