Former WWE Superstar Triple H’s theme song “The Game” was played during the first game of game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics.
The series drew 3-3 and the winner would advance to the grand finals. The Celtics won the game 109-81, knocking out the defending champion Bucks. The team from Boston will face the Miami Heat in the grand finale starting on May 18.
The Boston Celtics and WWE have had a close relationship for many years. Triple H has attended many Celtics games, including one in 2004 with his Evolution groups Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista.
The company has also hosted numerous events at the Celtics’ home ground at TD Garden in Boston. This year’s Survivor Series is set to kick off the arena on November 26.
Kevin Owens Claims He Wouldn’t Be In WWE Without Triple Them
Kevin Owens stated that he and many other talents would not have signed with WWE without Triple H.
Speaking to talkSPORT, the Laureate credited The Game for helping him in his WWE career, while insisting that no one else has done so much for him.
Talking about Hunter’s official retirement and goodbye at WrestleMania 38, the former Universal champion had this to say:
“I think I repeat what everyone has said: It was unfortunate that he did not retire in the ring, but he made the right decision for himself and his family. So it was the right decision, it was a good decision.” h/t talkSPORT
Owens first made his mark in WWE when he became the NXT Champion. The Black and Gold franchise was run by Cerebral Assassin at the time. KO has considered the 14-time world champion as his mentor ever since.
