The 1997 WWE King of the Ring, Triple H, recently commented on the return of the famed tournament. WWE.com posted Triple H’s comments to the promotion’s official YouTube page.

“King of the Ring is one of those moments in time where if you have it, it can be a complete career-changing moment,” Triple H said in the video.

“Winning King of the Ring can put you on a trajectory in your career to being a top player in the WWE for years to come and you don’t have to look any further than the list of people that have won it that have gone on to do just that. It was a launchpad for ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, it was a launchpad for me, it was a launchpad for Bret Hart, for a lot of talent that it just took them to a whole other level.”
