WWE Superstar Triple H Accompanies Mayweather Into The Ring On Saturday

Floyd "Money" Mayweather is known for his extra special ring walks and he'll deliver another fan special Saturday night when Triple H®, one of the "BIGGEST" names in World Wrestling Entertainment, accompanies the six-time world champion to the ring for his fight against the five-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and live on HBO Pay-Per-View®..

"Triple H is one of the greatest guys in the world and represents a whole universe of WWE fans that appreciate what he does," said Mayweather. "He and his stature are huge and I can't think of a better person to escort me to the ring for my return to boxing."

"It is an honor to walk the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world back into the ring," said WWE Superstar Triple H. "Floyd 'Money' Mayweather has shown WWE tremendous support and it is my pleasure to return the favor this Saturday by standing at his side as he defeats Marquez in what Iam sure will be boxing's fight of the year."

Mayweather is known for a long list of creative ring walks including past performances by famed entertainer 50 Cent and his former ABC DancingWith the Stars season mates Helio Castroneves, Wayne Newton and Mark Cuban. Other memorable walks included being carried to the ring while standing aloft a Roman Emperor's throne and brought to the ring by a six-man drawn chariot.

Always accompanied by music of his own choosing, Mayweather's past selections have used Bruce Springstein's Born in the U.S.A., 50 Cent's Straight to the Bank, Jay-Z's What More Can I Say, 50 Cent's Whip Your Head Boy, Queen's We Will Rock You and Another One Bites the Dust, 50 Cent's How We Do and Jay-Z's Hove, to name some of his favorites. Saturday night's selection is still a mystery and will only be revealed in the arena when his walk starts.

Triple H is 6'4", 255 lbs and has won countless championships in WWE. He began his career by enrolling in Walter "Killer" Kowalski's Pro Wrestling School in Malden, Mass., where the future WWE Superstar trained four days a week under Kowalski's "tough love" tutelage, then divided his weekends between wrestling in the independent circuit and managing a Gold's Gym in Nashua, NH. It was this dedication that provided him with the fortitude to become a Grand Slam champion in WWE; the charisma to star in feature films, television shows, and commercials; and the stamina to pull countless pranks each week on Monday Night Raw as one half of D-Generation X with fellow WWE Superstar Shawn Michaels.

To say the least, Mayweather knows how to make an entrance and his upcoming fight against Marquez on September 19 is no exception.
