WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns recently discussed the in-ring retirement of his former foe and WrestleMania opponent Triple H.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Roman revealed just how much of an influence and help to him Hunter Hearst Helmsley has been over the years.

“H was very critical in this process, to guide me along. Before I met Vince [McMahon] and built a relationship with him, it was Triple H” Roman Reigns began.

“He was the one down there in developmental, helping guide talent along. He’s the one who overlooked everything. Now the developmental is called NXT, which is a great platform for us, and they have a big show themselves.

“Before that, they were called FCW, and the shows were held in a tiny warehouse. We were killing each other in front of 50 people for what felt like nothing at the time. But Triple H was huge in guiding me along” Reigns added.

Reigns also revealed that Triple H helped to get him raises when he asked for them: “In the early days, I was always the type asking for raises. Every few weeks, I’d be like, ’˜can I get more money?’ And they’d say, ’˜Yes, sure.’

“But there was a point when they were like, ’˜No.’ And then I was like, ’˜can you ask Triple H?’ And the next morning, they tell me, ’˜you got your raise.’vH has always hooked me up, he has always looked over me. Inside and out of the ring, he’s the best” the Universal Champion concluded.
