boss Triple H has admitted he feared death as he found himself in a fight for his life in September 2021.

The legendary star – real name Paul Levesque – announced earlier this year he would , which led to him taking a step back from his work .

Asked if he was afraid of dying, the father-of-three – who is married to WWE’s chairwoman and co-CEO Stephanie McMahon – said: ‘The whole of time… I get emotional thinking about it.’

However, he described his experience as ‘a gift’ which gave him a fresh perspective on life where, despite his clear love for WWE and wrestling as a whole, his focus will always been on his family.

He told BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani: ‘In some way, it’s a gift to look at your life from those eyes. If they tell you you’re going to die on Tuesday, no one is going to go, “Well shit, I have a board meeting on Friday!” It’s irrelevent!

‘I love what I do, I love the passion, I love being a part of creating a magic of what we do in WWE for people all around the world.

‘It’s my passion in life, but it doesn’t compare to my passion for my kids or my wife. That can all go away, you think of life differently.’

Back in March, Triple H opened up on his battle with viral pneumonia and heart failure – which – and explained he now has a defibrillator in his chest.

Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s , he said at the time: ‘I was nose diving and at the one-yard line of where you don’t want to be. For your family and your future, when they tell you it’s 99%, it gets real. We have three young girls; 15, 13, and 11 [years old].

‘Suddenly, I come home and I’m a little bit sick, and their dad, who is strong, always, suddenly is in the hospital.

‘I don’t know if they understood the consequences of it, but there are moments in there when they are putting you out for stuff and you think, “Is this it? Do you wake up again?”

‘That’s tough to swallow. It makes you think differently about life. It doesn’t make you any less driven with the things you do, but it certainly makes you appreciate the things you have; your friends and your family.’
