The wrestling legend himself has got on record in the past about being a fan of the Hammers, so it was only a matter of time before fans heard his iconic entrance theme music blaring out over London Stadium.
As the teams came out for the second half of West Ham’s dominating 4-0 win over Doncaster Rovers, Triple H’s Motorhead theme The Game – which was written specially for him – could be heard, and the former world champion caught wind of the tribute.
Responding to a tweet about the tribute, Trips responded with two hammer emojis as a show of respect to the club he supports.
As well as urging Declan Rice to stay with the Hammers, he even compared the club to WWE itself, previously insisting: ‘West Ham is probably the closest to what we do, with the passion of their fan base and their loyalty, right? That’s the closest to what we do.’
Maybe the Gunners got wind of his fandom, because in recent games they have gone for a whole host of wrestling themes.
In January, they paid tribute to the late, great Brodie Lee following the ex-WWE and AEW star’s tragic death on December 26.
And the home game trend comes after Arsenal delighted fans by playing Kurt Angle’s signature tune during the recent match against Crystal Palace.
The Olympic Hero himself later responded to the news, as he teased: ‘Arsenal using my theme song. The only thing missing, due to COVID, is 30,000 fans chanting “You Suck”. #YouSuckCovid #itstrue (sic)’
Arsenal’s next Premier League home game is on January 30 – WWE fans will be tuning in to see who gets the nod on that occasion.
