Update: Triple H commenced Summerslam Weekend with an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
The WWE performer and executive appeared during the weekly “Thank You Notes” segment.
Fallon “thanked” Triple H for sounding “less like a WWE superstar and more like an extra-strength hemorrhoid cream.” Upon hearing the joke, Triple H came out and delivered a body slam.
HHH then plugged “Summerslam” — and the forthcoming “Tonight Show” interview with Jon Hamm.
A video of the segment and photos from the taping follow:
WWE will be running two big shows in Brooklyn this weekend: NXT Takeover on Saturday and Summerslam on Sunday.
Ahead of those events, WWE performer and executive Triple H filmed a cameo for the Manhattan-based “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
