At WWE’s Crown Jewel event, the main event of D-Generation X vs The Brothers of Destruction completely stole the show with Shawn Michaels proving he still had it every step of the way to close the show.
One sour note, though, was that Triple H was visibly working hurt for most of the match with what looked like a serious injury.
WWE has now confirmed the injury as an apparent torn pectoral muscle, stating that The Gamewill undergo surgery upon his return to the United States.
A stacked Crown Jewel show had a monumental main event to close out the spectacle in Saudi Arabia when Triple H and a returning Shawn Michaels reunited as D-Generation X to take on the Brothers of Destruction after a hotly-anticipated clash between HHH and the Deadman at Super Showdown ended in chaos last month.
Early on in the match, Kane dumped Triple H on the outside of the ring with a nasty landing seemingly injuring him. His game appeared pretty much paralysed and his hand was unable to loosen or tighten grip – though commentators at the time suggested it might have been a rib injury.

Triple H continued the match, although he was slammed through the announce table and out of the action for a large chunk of it. Impressively though, The Game battled back and played a huge role at the end of the encounter – seemingly fighting through immense pain to put on an incredible show.
