Triple H, one of the most decorated and popular WWE stars has hired Seth Petruzelli ahead of Wrestlemania, reports Bloody Elbow. It looks like Triple H has finally warmed up to MMA and persons associated with it, after Rener Gracie trained his wife and daughters.
Petruzelli is a known face in the MMA world. His high profile CV includes stints in the UFC, WEC, King of the Cage, BAMMA and Bellator. He is famously known for ruining Elite XC’s plans for Kimbo Slice. Currently, he runs his own gym in Florida. After retiring from MMA, he has been training others.
Last October 21, 2015, WWE signed him to work at their Performance Center as a striking coach. News of Petruzelli training Triple H started doing the rounds after he tweeted a picture of him training the WWE star.
The WWE star whose real name is Paul Levesque is gearing up for his ninth title run. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion will fight Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 32 this Sunday. Reigns is largely known for his hulking physique and signature Superman punch.
Reigns might be receiving online criticism but there is one WWE artist who swears by Reigns’ artwork. Speaking to Forbes, WWE artist Rob Schamberger had some nice things to say about Reigns.
“With my shirt sales, he’s consistently my best seller. I’ll get like 150,000 to a quarter-million views a week, his had [329,000 views]. By and far, heads and shoulders above everyone else,” Rob said, reports Wrestle Zone.
“I might have some guys coming by and booing, but I’m sure I’ll have several women and children that are loving what I’m doing.”
