Triple H, Ice Buckets & New WWE Slam City Episode
I’ve been getting lots of news from WWE and I wanted to make sure that I shared some of it with you. You probably have seen all the videos going around for the “Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS” Well lots of celebrities have gotten on board by giving donations and also taking part in the challenge. Well Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger challenged WWE COO Triple H and he accepted the challenge. Check out the video of him and who he challenges.
Super cool right. Triple H challenged Stone Cold Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon. I would love to see all three of them do the challenge. If you’re wondering about the challenge. The ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one’s head, generally in conjunction with donating to the ALS Association in the United States.
