Paul Levesque, also known as Triple H, teamed up with old pal Shawn Michaels for the main event of WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on November 2. The duo came out with an oozing victory over The Brothers of Destruction but Levesque sustained a gruesome injury during the tussle. Note: it was not part of the script.
In a recent Twitter post, Triple H shared a photo of his brutally torn chest muscles and revealed that he has to go under the knife to repair the tear.

The 49-year old wrestler rekindled D Generation X with Michaels to take on The Undertaker and Kane in a Tag Team affair at the WWE Crown Jewel headliner in Saudi Arabia last week.
The Brothers of Destruction seemed to take advantage of their rusty opponents as they displayed their dominance early in the match, with The Heartbreak Kid, who last fought his professional bout eight years ago, serving as their main target.
Kane and Taker attempted to finish the DX leaders with a Tombstone Pile-driver but Michaels hit both of them with a super-kick after poking Kane’s eye. Triple H then launched a devastating Pedigree before pinning the Red Big Machine for the victory.
However, Triple H sustained a torn pectoral muscle during the match. He shared a snap of this painful injury in a recent Twitter post, which showed a huge bruise in his upper body. Check out Levesque’s injury in the post below:

The legendary wrestler, who has been with the promotion for almost 25 years now, is no stranger to this kind of setback.
In 2001, Triple H suffered a torn quadriceps after an attempt to break the Walls Of Jericho. But instead of opting for an early exit, he decided to complete the match and even told Jericho to put him in the walls. It was a near career-ending injury for Triple H and he had to be sidelined for over eight months to rehabilitate.
He is now again expected to take several months of layoff after undergoing a surgery for his torn pectoral muscles.
