Anyone who watched Wrestlemania 29 this past weekend may have wondered what exactly was stuck to Triple H’s torso during his appearance at the event. It turns out that the stuff was dry ice, which burned the wrestler during his ‘No Holds Barred’ match against Brock Lesnar.

According to a TMZ report, Triple H was hit with dry ice while making his entrance into the MetLife Stadium arena. The special effects that accompanied the wrestler’s bombastic entrance blasted the wrestler with the super-cold carbon dioxide, giving him second-degree burns.

Being a professional wrestler, however, Triple H worked through the pain. He endured a 24-minute match against Lesnar to, as the storyline held, save himself from forced retirement.

Triple H took to Twitter this week to show off the aftermath of the burn:

Triple H also injured his left arm during the Wrestlemania match, leading to a series of X-rays and a bandaged wrist shortly after the fight:

    I was wondering if that was what happened there. I work at DISH with a few other wrestling fans, and I had them over to watch WrestleMania with me, and we all noticed the dry ice on his abdomen. I even used my DISH Hopper DVR to replay his entrance a few times to see if we could figure out what it was. I usually don’t get to watch these events because they interrupt my wife’s programming, but with our Hopper we can record up to 6 programs at once; that means I’m never going to miss Wrestlemania again
