WWE announced Wednesday that longtime star and current executive Paul "Triple H" Levesque suffered what they are calling a cardiac event last week.

“Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, underwent a successful procedure last week at Yale New Haven Hospital following a cardiac event. The episode was caused by a genetic heart issue and Paul is expected to make a full recovery."

No other details were provided.

The 52-year-old has been semi-retired since 2018, wrestling sparingly at events like WrestleMania and the Saudi Arabia super shows. He hasn't been in the ring since June 2019.

He was in Las Vegas for SummerSlam weekend and led the open tryouts the company had there.

Levesque is WWE's executive VP of global talent strategy & development and is a driving force behind NXT which has been in the news lately due to philosophy changes led by his father-in-law Vince McMahon that include a new approach to recruiting and a new look.

Levesque has been married to WWE's chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon since 2003. The couple has three daughters.
