#72: Triple H on Pre-Fight Rituals, Injury Avoidance, and Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
The Tim Ferriss Show

00:00 / 00:58:34

“Why would I be wound up? I’m either ready, or I’m not. Worrying about it right now ain’t gonna change a damn thing.” – Floyd Mayweather, Jr. just before a fight, as recalled by Paul Levesque [34:20] Paul Levesque, more popularly known as Triple H, is a 13-time World Heavyweight Champion in World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE). He is also the Executive Vice President of talent, live-events, and creative at the WWE. In this episode, we explore everything: the teachings of Killer Kowalski, how he avoids and repairs injuries (even if on the road 200+ days of the year), pre-game rituals, and habits developed with the support of trainer Joe DeFranco, The Undertaker, and boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.. This podcast is not limited to athletic performance. We dig deep into Triple H’s routines, and how he manages his responsibilities as a husband and father of three daughters.
