WWE LIVE: Triple H breaks into a jig but signs off with pedigree after beating Jinder Mahal

first_imgTriple H did what he said he would. That is to show the ‘The Modern Day Maharaja’ how it feels to be in hell.The Game beat Jinder Mahal in the main-event of the WWE Supershow and then signed off in the most Hunteresque way ever.The Cerebral Assassin called Jinder back into the ring and praised him and told the WWE Universe that they are in safe in the hands of the Modern Day Maharaja. He then praised the crowd and asked the Singh Brothers and Jinder to dance.As the trio broke into one, they kept insisting HHH to dance with them. After much hesitation and insistence from the crowd, he broke into a jig with the trio.However, even as most of the elated people thought that’s the end, it was clearly not. He quickly changed it and pedigreed Samir and walked off the ramp while soaking in the huge ovation from a well-content crowd in New Delhi.The Game, who took more than 30 minutes to beat Jinder, went through a lot before finally pinning the former WWE champion with a second pedigree.While Jinder dominated most of the match, Triple H got momentum towards the end and after a spinebuster and two pedigrees, he finally got the three count.He was motivated one could say by the huge support he got from the crowd and most of the time it was louder than what the Indian-origin Jinder got. Jinder got his fair share of moments and crowd support but in the end couldn’t match up to the legend in Triple H’s ring — like he said before the start of the match on social media.advertisementIt started with Triple H challenging Jinder Mahal for a match in the WWE Live India after the latter had lost his WWE Championship to AJ Styles.”I decided India that if you want it bad enough, I will reply you. Let me hear your voice and if it is loud enough then I’ll return to New Delhi on December 9 and I will step into that ring to compete. But, it won’t be against just anybody. It will be for the biggest match in India’s history. It will be Modern Day Maharaja Jinder Mahal, the former WWE champion against the King of Kings, The Game, The Cerebral Assassin,” Triple H [email protected]…@JinderMahal…I only have one question for you… pic.twitter.com/LhNmfmES8J- Triple H (@TripleH) November 12, 2017Replying to the Cerebral Assasin’s challenge, the former WWE champion said that he accepts the challenge and it is the biggest match of his career.”@TripleH not only the biggest match in Indian History, but also of my career. Consider the challenge accepted by me, now @wweindia and #wweuniverse India let’s all make this happen,” tweeted Jinder.”I’m honoured that you considered me as an opponent in India, in New Delhi. But I must warn you Triple H…you may be the King of Kings but I’m The Modern Day Maharaja and I’m simply unstoppable when I have my people with me. So Delhi walo? Dasso yeh match dekhna chahte hoh aap? Humara Jinder Mahal vs Triple H. Dasso? (So Delhi people, do you want to see Jinder Mahal vs Triple H? Tell),” said Jinder in his video reply to HHH’s [email protected] not only the biggest match in Indian History, but also of my career. Consider the challenge accepted by me, now @wweindia and #wweuniverse India lets all make this happen. pic.twitter.com/6Wv62HnWFg- The Maharaja (@JinderMahal) November 12, 2017Jinder Mahal then posted another video warning him of his invincibility in front of his own people.”Match ban gaya hai…The match has been made. The biggest match in Indian history — Triple H versus Jinder Mahal. Triple H, we have seen more of you in the past few months than we have in the past few years and still you remain that same unstoppable force. But in India, in my land and in front of my people, I become unstoppable. So Triple H…December 9th, Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium…The King of Kings, The Game versus The Modern Day Maharaja and Triple H…you will bow down,” said Jinder.Triple H shot back at the Modern Day Maharaja in his own subtle manner.”I come there to teach you a lesson that only I can teach because when you step into my ring, you are no longer only in India, you are no longer in front of just 1.3 billion of your people, you are now in my world, my world. (sic) And in my world Jinder, there is only one true king, one King of Kings and all will be humbled before him, including you. I will see you in New Delhi Maharaja,” Triple H said in a Twitter video.advertisementWhen you step into the ring on December 9th @JinderMahal…I will teach you there is only ONE king. @WWEIndia pic.twitter.com/i5rZQNMjEI- Triple H (@TripleH) November 29, 2017The Cerebral Assassin asked Jinder to question himself regarding The Game’s motive of stepping into the ring against him.”Jinder Mahal, as December 9 approaches, you must ask yourself why, why am I back, why am I stepping into the ring, why am I coming to India to New Delhi to face the Modern Day Maharaja, Jinder Mahal.”Triple H revealed that he has taken it upon himself to make Jinder better and the best way to do that is to inflict failure upon him. The Game warned that he will come in front of Jinder’s people and ensure that “you are everything that you say you are in the future.””See Jinder it’s my job now, my place to ensure the future. How I ensure that future is by making sure that athletes are the best. I push them to the limits. I make sure that everyday they learn lessons that make them better than they were the day before. Jinder I have taken it upon myself then to make you better.”Sometimes the best way to improve is to learn from your failures. So I come to New Delhi on December 9th Jinder, in front of 1.3 billion of your people and I come there to teach you, to ensure that you are everything that you say you are in the future,” Triple H warned.last_img read more

first_imgTottenham defender Ben Davies: I know all about Cardiffby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham defender Ben Davies says he knows all about today’s opponents Cardiff City.A Swansea boy until his move to Spurs in 2014, the now 25-year-old has played in South Wales derbies opposite Cardiff for as long as he can remember.”It probably has been that long!” smiled Davies as it was put to him that he would have been as young as eight years old when he first took to a football pitch against Cardiff.“Swansea-Cardiff is obviously a derby so I’ve been playing them for years really, but I’ve only played a couple of times against them professionally so I’m looking forward to this one.“They were regular fixtures when I was younger, we played against them a lot but as far as memories go… it’s one of those things in youth football where some days you win, some days you don’t, but we won a Welsh Youth Cup final against them at Under-18 level which was a nice feeling.“For me, there’s obviously that Swansea-Cardiff rivalry but also playing for Wales… I’ve played there (at the Cardiff City Stadium) loads of times now and always got a good reception from the Welsh fans, but I’m not too sure what reception I’ll get after being at Spurs for quite a while now!” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

21 days agoNabil Fekir’s ex-agent lifts lid on Liverpool collapse: I was ashamed

first_imgNabil Fekir’s ex-agent lifts lid on Liverpool collapse: I was ashamedby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveThe former agent of Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir has come clean on why a move to Liverpool fell through.Jean-Pierre Bernes has revealed to Canal Plus that a third party had been at fault for the failed transfer.He said, “Nabil was Liverpool’s priority. I worked for four months with the Liverpool representatives, with Jurgen Klopp, Jean-Michel Aulas, everything was ready. “Nabil was already aware of his future contract, which would have seen him earn around €45m over five years. “And on the day that the contract was supposed to be signed, at Rambouillet, we saw a lawyer and Nabil’s brother-in-law arrived who said: ‘Stop everything, discussions have to start all over again’. It was surreal. We thought that we were in a Walt Disney film.”He added: “There were two elements. The player’s medical was negative and the second element was that when you want to sign for a big club like Liverpool, you need a certain attitude. “When the Liverpool guys witnessed this cinema, they immediately… Sometimes when a player has an injury representatives can make an effort to make it work.”The brother-in-law of Nabil all of a sudden acted like a player’s agent. He wanted a commission, everyone knows, it is fashionable these days. “[Fekir] was on a cloud, he seemed to have transformed, he didn’t even greet the Liverpool representatives. “He arrived after the medical, everyone was looking at each other, the Liverpool representatives were wondering where they were. I was ashamed.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Im no quitter on climate change issues McKenna says at G7 ministers

first_imgHALIFAX – Canada’s environment minister said she’s no “quitter” despite calls Wednesday from David Suzuki for her to resign and a G7 meeting that didn’t shift her American counterpart’s firm opposition to the Paris climate agreement.Catherine McKenna had started off the three-day Halifax gathering by telling a personal story of encountering young people in the Arctic who are worried local hunters are falling through the ice due to rising temperatures.“They’re worried about whether we’re going to do anything about it, because they don’t feel empowered to do anything about it,” she told the delegates, after reminding them of a summer that has seen massive forest fires and deadly hurricanes.The minister also spoke of translating the targets of the Paris climate agreement into action and said countries need to firm up rules around how the carbon emission targets will be enforceable.But by day’s end, she’d faced calls from Canada’s most prominent environmentalist to leave her job due to the prime minister’s support of the fossil fuel industry.The French environment minister recently took that route, saying he didn’t want to create the illusion his presence in the government was leading to progress on climate change.In a story published by La Presse, David Suzuki says if McKenna really believes what she’s saying, she too should quit “instead of being an apologist for the government.”He told the Montreal-based news site that Canada lacks credibility on climate change, with the Liberal government supporting the construction of a pipeline to the British Columbia coast to transport Alberta bitumen.Suzuki made the comments in the context of an interview about the resignation of French environment minister, Nicolas Hulot.“She must stop rationalizing what Canada is doing,” Suzuki told La Presse, adding that the government “talks out both sides of its mouth.”“We have a prime minister who signed (the Paris climate accord), who says, ‘We’re back,’ and we all praised him … then he approves pipelines! What is that?”McKenna defended herself in an evening news conference, arguing it’s easy to be divisive but difficult to continue battling for progress on climate change in a country dependent on resource industries.“I’m not a quitter. Resigning is easy. It’s really hard to do what we’re doing. This is a long-term transition to a cleaner future.”“I’m going to stay in this job as long as the prime minister keeps me here.”Meanwhile, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Andrew Wheeler, said little in public during the meeting.After the gathering, he said in an interview with The Canadian Press that the administration of President Donald Trump continues to be opposed to the Paris agreement.“The Paris accord we didn’t think was fair to the United States, but we are taking a serious look at our carbon emissions,” he said.Regarding climate change itself, Wheeler said: “I believe climate change is real. I believe that man has an impact on it. It’s still a question to what extent and what we can do about it.”Wheeler said the United States is taking a “different approach” than its G7 counterparts, but still is looking to reduce carbon and can talk about other environmental issues with the gathered G7 ministers and invited nations.He also defended the Trump administration’s support of the coal industry in the United States, despite the high levels of greenhouse gas emissions from burning coal.“Worldwide coal usage is going to go up. China is increasing, India is increasing. Worldwide coal usage is going to go up, and what we want to make sure is we’re producing the cleaner technologies for export to other countries,” said Wheeler.When McKenna was asked about the challenge of working with the Americans she responded that discussions had been productive and “frank.”“The United States has taken a different position on the Paris agreement. That’s well known,” she said.She added that the delegates were still able to discuss how to reduce harmful emissions in the air and what “adaptation” is needed to prepare for the flooding, storms and rising sea levels already occurring due to climate change.In the afternoon session on adaptation to climate change, the environment minister for Jamaica spoke of how challenging climate change is for Caribbean nations that face the rising violence of extreme storms.Daryl Vaz told the G7 ministers that his nation has seen 14 hurricanes in a decade, along with 12 tropical storms.“We only have to look at hurricane activity to see … climate change is effectively normalizing the abnormal,” he said during his presentation.Jamaica’s efforts to develop economically may be derailed by climate change, with 70 per cent of his island’s population in coastal areas, said the minister.He told the delegates that billions in investment is needed for the preservation of natural areas that help stabilize the coast, including mangroves in the intertidal zones.—Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.last_img read more
