Levesque, who serves as Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development for WWE, reportedly had a “heart event” that appears to have been successfully treated at Yale New Haven Hospital.
“Paul Levesque, also known as Triple H, had a successful heart surgery last week at Yale New Haven Hospital,” WWE said in its brief statement. “The episode was caused by a genetic heart problem and Paul is expected to make a full recovery.”
Levesque has been an icon in the world of professional wrestling for nearly three decades, having made his WWE debut in 1994 and becoming a household name almost instantly a few years later. In the early 2000s, Levesque made a brief leap into the acting world where he starred Blade: Trinity, The chaperone, and the 2011 film from the inside to the outside.

After that, however, Levesque stayed out of the acting world, save for a handful of dubbed roles in Scooby Doo! WrestleMania Secret, Scooby Doo! and WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon, and Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania.
