Triple H paid homage to the late Motörhead singer Lemmy ahead of his huge championship match at WrestleMania 32 this weekend.

The WWE wrestler tweeted a picture of his special Motörhead boots ahead of the event at Texas' 80,000 capacity AT&T stadium, alongside the caption: "For Lem.... @myMotorhead #WrestleMania".

Triple H - real name Paul Michael Levesque - struck up a friendship with Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister in the early 2000s when Motörhead recorded his WWE entrance song, The Game.

The band went on to perform the track live at two WrestleMania events, WrestleMania X-Seven and WrestleMania 21.

Triple H in turn contributed co-vocals on the band's spoken word track, Serial Killer, from their 2012 Hammered album.

The wrestler also spoke at Lemmy's memorial service, which was streamed live on YouTube in January. 

Though Triple H put his best foot forward with his Motörhead-embroidered boots on Sunday night, he was defeated by Roman Reign, who took home the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt.

Meanwhile, Motörhead have announced the release of Clean Your Clock - a live album and film documenting their final tour

The release will use footage from their gigs at Munich, Germany on 20-21 November 2015.

Lemmy died after a short battle with an aggressive form of cancer on 28 December 2015. According to reports - the Ace Of Spades frontman was told he had the life-threatening illness just days before his death on 26 December 2015, Boxing Day.
