The segment with Triple H began with regular Howard Stern caller and wrestling fan Double A coming in the studio. You readers might remember Stern and company throwing urine balloons (or as they had to call them on air "human liquid balloons") at Double A so he could meet the Rock a number of months ago.

This morning, Double A was in a pink thong in the robospanker to meet Triple H. For those who do not know, the robospanker is a remote control spanking device used on the show. Double A had several replicas (or as he called them "replicates") title belts on him this morning. The Stern crew noted Double A was such a "superfan of wrestlers so much its gay." Double A (he did take it from Arn Anderson, 33, 5'3, and has a TANNING BED in his own apartment and pays for and videotapes himself with hookers, he sounds perfect for the business) talked about all of his SIX total replica belts, including $425 for a Smackdown title belt and a how he paid at least $1,000 for all the fake belts he had on hand for the show (3).

Double A also plugged the next PPV (not saying the date or the name of the show, or when it was) and the elimination chamber (please note, Triple H did not plug anything wrestling related other then the book and the book signing). Howard asked Double A (which stands for Awesome Angelo) trivia questions about Triple H in order to meet him as Double A called Triple H the "best bad guy wrestler out there.."

Here were the Triple H Trivia questions Howard asked Double A, keep in mind Double A actually claimed he read the book...

1. How many meals does Triple H eat on a daily basis? Double A answered 6, it was 7, therefore Double A got robospanked. (0-1)

2. What is Triple H's real name? Double A answered "Paul I forget the last name, but mentioned Triple H stands for Hunter Hearst Hemsley," it was John Paul Levesque, therefore Double A got robospanked. (0-2)

3. What year did Triple H debut in the WWF? Double A answered 1989, it was 1995, therefore Double A got robospanked again. (0-3)

4. What year was Triple H declared the WWF king of the ring? Double A didn't answer and complained about the questions. "Ask me about some of his matches!" he told Howard (0-3 still)

5. Who was Triple H partnered with when he tore the quad muscle "completely off the bone"? Double A answered, it sounded like he said Sean Waltman, it was Stone Cold (this happened in 2001), therefore Double A got robospanked for the fourth time. (0-4)

6. What does Triple H call spitting bottle from the water become the matches. Double A answered "time to play the game," it was "the spritz," so Double A got robospanked for the fifth and final time (0-5)

After the fifth robospanking, Triple H came in. As Double A was allowed to meet Triple H, but AA would have to remain in the robospanker throughout the course of the interview. About Double A in thong on the robospanker Triple H was "afraid to see this." Triple H commented "I don't think he (Double A) knows anything about me, I think he just wanted to get in that machine. If you were a real fan you would have never gotten yourself in that machine."

Much like Eric Bischoff, Triple H named Double A "Champion of the ass spankers" and also remarked "If you asked him my personal measurements he might have better answers for you." Double A (while lying face down in the robospanker) talked about Triple H being married to Stephanie and how he "appreciate all you guys and for what you've done for the business." Double A said this several times while talking with Triple H. Howard asked Triple H about the title belts and if they "threw them out after they were done with them." Triple H replied "When your champ you gotta carry them around, I don't have any of the replica ones. Its amazing how many people come to the arena with those things."

Triple H suggested Double A "has walked around his room butt naked while wearing those belts." He also told Double A to "Please put some clothes on" and also commented how he though Double A's tanned "brown fat must be better then white fat, but after seeing this I was wrong." Howard plugged Blade 3 said he "loved it a lot" and thought Triple H was very good in it. Stern asked if Triple H was following the Rock to Hollywood. Triple H said he wanted to stay in the wrestling business and do movies, and the Rock just wanted to do movies.

"I want to be the first Triple H" Triple H noted he didn't want to follow in the movie making footsteps of Hulk Hogan "oh god no! I want to make movies that are good" Triple H suggested Hogan "couldn't play anything other then Hulk Hogan, brother" About the Rock, "I'm not looking to leave wrestling, and this isn't a knock on the Rock. He's walked away from the business and I don't blame him. It might be different if it was entirely my movie." Triple H would "never leave wrestling" and Stern attempted to get Triple H to say something bad about the Rock. Triple H announced he is "not" taking acting lessons, and the WWE is great training for films.

"What do you think I do for a living?" Stern asked Triple H about playing gay roles, he said he could be at the same time "I don't think anybody could play any part, I don't think I could play a midget. If it's a great story, or something that's entertaining I would do it." Triple H also said something of the following about Blade 3 "Its like acting with big one inch metal fangs in my mouth."

Alrighty then. Someone mentioned how Triple H had some background in gay roles as he's banged Chyna. Stern remarked "I don't get how you banged Chyna." Triple H replied "She was a lot of a different person when I met her, she was selling beepers and the nicest person in the world. The more success she got the more miserable she was." Stern asked about the "One Night In China" sex tape. Triple H had not seen it. "Its her with a friend of mine, I've not seen it, and I'm not interested in seeing it. She didn't have pimples on her ass when I was dating her."

Stern played Chyna singing "holiday" (winner of a Stern F-Emmy award for worst musical performance from a non-musician), "I'm not sure that was singing" Triple H remarked. Say what you will about him, but the guy seemed very personable on the show. Triple H and Stern talked about Jessica Biel from Blade, he said he didn't fool around with her as he's been married for a year now. However, Triple H had Beth O's (Howard Stern's model girlfriend) phone number in his pocket as they recently did a TV show together. "She wants to take you to a show, get you a box in the garden." Triple H forgot to mention they could have used Stern last time at the Garden with the lowest crowd since 1995. Stern saw the number, it was hers.

Stern asked Triple H about Wesley Snipes publicized behavior on the set of Blade 3. "I don't know if he's insane, he's fine with me, he's very nice to me, but he wasn't nice to many people on the set. He didn't talk to his co-stars at all. I saw him threaten the director several times." Oh! Triple H said Snipes was in character as Blade on the set, but "he wasn't blade with me. I saw him get into it a number of times with the director, I was on set, I was trying to take it in (the filmmaking experience) and get to know the business." Triple H then suggested Snipes had "complaints about creative" in the movie.

I guess Hollywood is a lot like the wrestling business after all. Triple H also said Snipes worked stiff with several stuntmen. "I hate a guy who takes liberties with other people, I saw him really knocking the hell out of stunt guys. He (Snipes) got me with a kick one time and he apologized like 10 times." Triple H threw in he was 6'4 and maybe that's why Snipes didn't mess with him. "I saw stunt guys bleeding, and I didn't see him apologize, again I'm just reporting what I see." Stern talked about Snipes being a "karate guy."

Triple H replied "Karate is a bunch of motions. Have you ever seen anyone in a street fight use it? While you're swinging your arms around and I could pull your eyes out." Stern asked about Jessica Biel again, Triple H said she was "smokin" but "I know my wife is listening and this is going to get my some major heat." I love insider terms in mainstream interviews. They mentioned she's a regular girl, and how he and co-star Ryan Reynolds parties with her and 4 of her college friend and how it was "girls gone wild" in one corner. The GGW PPV which Eric Bischoff produced was not mentioned here thankfully. Trips said "she always burping and liking gross websites." Hulk Hogan was mentioned again

"How did you make the worst movies in Hollywood ever? But I can't blame the man, he took the money and make some of the worst movies ever." They also talked about his daughters singing career and Triple H griped about Hogan's movie decisions some more. As for his book, Simon & Schuster was "on me forever to do a book, it's not something you do in the middle of your career, you do it towards the end." Howard asked Triple H about doing cardio "I don't run, I'm in the ring 4-5 times a week for 30 minutes at a time."

Chauncy Hayden from Steppin Out magazine called in and spoke. Triple H needed 4-5 pieces of identification to confirm that Steppin Out was not a gay magazine before Triple H would speak to them. Chauncy asked about an "ultimate fight" winner between Triple H and Chuck Zito (you may remember him from Oz or WCW in 1999) "I know Chuck. Chuck would be tough, he would take it to the limit." Triple H would rather have them team up then fight. Stu Pitt (Brad's brother) called in asking about Snipes being a phony (EDITED) bastard. Triple H remarked "pull up your white hood up because I can't hear you."

Another caller was Nick, he noted "I ran into Triple H at a diner, he's no Dwayne Johnson, he was too busy talking to Chyna and doing nothing." Stern commented "Wrestling fans feel that wrestlers should always be available to them 24/7" WWE 24/7 was not plugged here, even though this month is all about Triple H. They plugged the Virgin Megastore for the fourth time during the interview (7-9 tomorrow at Union Square in Manhatten).

Stern tanked Triple H and wanted to ask more about Beth O's number, Triple H commented "When you come on Howard's show you don't know what he's going to be asking, so I had a trump card (referring to Beth O's number in his pocket)." Triple H said he was sign EVERY BOOK at the Megastore, and he WOULD do another film with Wesley Snipes. They talked about Asian "broads." "Who doesn't love Asian broads?" Triple H commented. Stern asked Triple H if he'd ever been with an Asian girl. Stern sidekick Robin Quivers quickly responded joking about "one night in China."

Stern asked about Chyna's partner, Triple H commented "He's still a friend of mine." He's also okay with Waltman being with her. Yet about the Chyna-X-Pac relationship status ,"What day is it, they're on again-off again?" "Evil" Dave Letterman asked Triple H if he'd ever seen the "Andy Kaufman" movie ("Man On The Moon" featuring Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler) Triple H said "no." Oh man, good ol'JR isn't gonna like that one. Good interview even though wrestling was hardly mentioned during it. Triple H came off as a decent fellow.
