WWE’s Triple H a huge fan of the late Lemmy Kilmister and Motorhead

Lemmy Kilmister and Motorhead wowed WWE's Triple H.

Sports and entertainment cross in many places nowadays. Heavy metal music and WWE blend perfectly. That was never more true than for Triple H and the band Motorhead.

Triple H loves Motorhead and was especially fond of the band’s frontman, Lemmy Kilmister, who died Monday at 70, mere days after receiving a cancer diagnosis.

Triple H likes the band’s music so much, in fact, that when it came time for entrance/walkout music, nothing quite seemed to sound right. He wanted the music to sound like Motorhead, and after near misses, he asked WWE composer Jim Johnston to see if the band would allow him to use their music.

A marriage was made and Triple H continues to walk out to "The Game."

Here’s Triple H speaking about his music choice, and the band actually playing live for him at WrestleMania 21.

R.I.P. Lemmy.
