EXCLUSIVETriple H took the plunge this morning -- accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but he refused to give fans what they really want to see ... his wife getting doused.
WWE's Chief Operating Officer was outside Staples Center to join the trend sweeping the nation, and scoffed at haters who think the challenge isn't helping the cause. (Fact is, ALS donations have skyrocketed)
HHH also says he didn't challenge his wife Stephanie McMahon to do the I.B.C. because she's busy with SummerSlam on Sunday.
But that's not the only reason ... check out the video, every guy will understand.
