After today’s pregame festivities, one could very well make the argument that no team in all of sports knows how to hype up their fans like the Philadelphia 76ers. Bringing in WWE Hall of Famer Triple H to ring the Liberty Bell is one thing. Having Joel Embiid join him is simply next-level.
Triple H and Joel Embiid Ring Bell Before Hawks vs. 76ers Game 1
Few wrestlers have captivated fans like Triple H. On Sunday, the WWE legend and current front office executive fired up the 76ers fans in attendance for Game 1 of their NBA Playoffs series with the Atlanta Hawks.
Of course, Triple H had to make a true DX-style entrance. It just wouldn’t have been appropriate any other way.

And Joel Embiid was down for making that DX entrance right along with him!
Triple H would serve as the guest bell ringer, a tradition at all Philadelphia 76ers home games.

Of course, many NBA Playoffs analysts were offering their takes and predictions before Game 1 of this Eastern Conference Semifinals series. Although the 76ers are the top-seed and favorites, many believe the young Hawks could provide a stiff test.
Former NBA assistant coach Steve Jones Jr. alluded to as much before the game on Twitter. Well, after Triple H and Joel Embiid did their thing before tip-off, Jones was happy to rescind his takes.
Oh nevermind Triple H came out with Joel Embiid, Philly by 19. pic.twitter.com/ZLSHc9d4Yg
