WWE legend Triple H shocked fans after appearing with a billionaire business mogul at New York Fashion Week over the weekend.
WWE Chief Creative Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque appeared in a video with Jeff Bezos at the famous fashion event, prompting fans to speculate about a shocking appearance by the Amazon founder and CEO.
The footage showed Triple H sitting with Bezos and Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel.
Vince McMahon announced in April that he had agreed to sell WWE to Endeavor Group investors for $9.3 billion, and this video from the group shows the transition being completed.
The video shows the group watching models walk the runway at NYFW, including WWE superstar Maxxine Dupri.
WWE fans were convinced that the video was a sign that Bezos would appear at a wrestling event.
One fan said: “Bezos to WWE?”
Another: “Can’t wait to see if Bezos does something in WWE.”
A third: “WHY ARE YOU AT NYFW WITH BEZOS AND ARI, WHAT ARE YOU TELLING US?”
And a fourth joked: “This is the most random pairing of supervillains ever.”
The WWE deal is expected to close tomorrow, meaning both WWE and UFC will be under the same roof.
Monday’s episode of RAW will be the last under McMahon’s sole control.
Day-to-day operations will remain the same as Tripple H’s current position as Head of Creative.
McMahon won’t be completely out of the picture as he will continue to contribute to the company’s leadership.
He will serve as executive chairman of the new company and own 16%.
