Triple H is among the many public figures that have come out and offer their condolences to the people of Manchester, England as a result of the May 22 tragic bombings at a concert at the Manchester Arena.
In a short video on Sky Sports’ website, Triple H said WWE stands alongside the people affected by the tragedies, which killed at least 22 and injured at least 59 more.
“On behalf of WWE, Sky Sports and our fans all over the world, we offer our heartfelt condolences and unwavering support to all those affected by the tragedy in Manchester.” Triple H said. “We stand united and unyielding alongside you.”
Just hours ago, WWE canceled their June 6 NXT Live Event at Manchester Arena.
WWE has been increasing its presence in the United Kingdom since the start of the year. Aside from holding televised shows in England and touring there numerous times, WWE also held the first-ever United Kingdom tournament in January, which saw Tyler Bate become the inaugural WWE U.K. Champion. WWE will also soon have a weekly WWE Network show showcasing the company’s United Kingdom roster. The U.K. Championship changed hands at NXT TakeOver: Chicago when Pete Dunne defeated Bate for the title.
WWE also recently broadcast the WWE United Kingdom Championship Special on the WWE Network on May 19, with Jim Ross and Nigel McGuinness serving as commentators for the event.
