TRIPLE H is following fellow legend Kurt Angle by making a sensational return to the ring.
The King of Kings announced his comeback on Saturday as he prepares for his first match since WrestleMania.

Triple H, who is married to Stephanie McMahon, confirmed the news via his Twitter account.
He wrote: “My boots are packed and I’m coming for a fight #WWESantiago.
“I’m headed your way. Chile, get ready… it’s #GameTime.”
