Triple H is not currently in the WWE Hall of Fame, but it’s likely he’ll eventually get inducted twice … once by himself, and again as a member of D-Generation X. Of course, his induction as a singles competitor will have to be handled very carefully, given his position as an Executive Vice President of the company. But that’s a bridge we’ll cross when we get to it.

The Game was inducted into the “International Sports Hall of Fame” in 2015, and he’s been a member of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame since 2005. This week, he received perhaps one of the most unexpected Hall of Fame invites ever, as he’ll be inducted into the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame. It turns out Triple H was a member of the Boys & Girls Club in Nashua, New Hampshire. And get this: he’ll join Vince McMahon as a fellow member of the Hall.

The full press release:

Paul Levesque to be inducted into Boys & Girls Clubs of America Alumni Hall of Fame

DALLAS — Paul “Triple H” Levesque will enter the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) Alumni Hall of Fame today in Dallas. The Hall of Fame honors distinguished people who got their start at their local Boys & Girls Club.

Levesque enters the Hall of Fame alongside six other inductees: WNBA star Skylar Diggins, MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, actor Anthony Anderson, Dr. Dante Lauretta and Dr. Philip Schein.

A member of the Nashua, N.H., Club, Levesque debuted in WWE in 1995 and has gone on to capture 14 World Championships in addition to becoming a successful executive within the company.

He will join WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, who entered the BGCA Hall of Fame in 2015.

We will now leave you with images of Triple H, with a denim vest over a leather jacket, attending an after-school program. You’re welcome. Enjoy the rest of your day.
