“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,” a statement from WWE confirmed the news last week.

However, Triple H broke the silence via a Twitter statement as he thanked his colleagues for their supports.

I’ve been blown away by the outreach and support from so many people. I’m recovering, doing well, & deeply grateful for all the love in my life. Especially grateful for @ShawnMichaels & all the Superstars & crew @WWENXT! (Steph and the girls loved the snacks!) See you soon.
