Triple H was originally packaged as the WWF heel Hunter Hearst Helmsley, a spoiled rich kid from Greenwich, Connecticut whose name invoked both the family of publisher William Randolph Hearst and "The Queen of Mean," Leona Helmsley. Along with fellow Clique member Shawn Michaels and Chyna, he formed one of the most popular stables in wrestling history, D-Generation X in 1997. Around the same time, he shortened his alias to Triple H (a reference to the character's initials, HHH).

Triple H started off his WWE career as the Connecticut Blue-Blood, Hunter Hearst Helmsley. He was not a very popular wrestler whose most notable accomplishment was being squashed by The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania XII. Hunter was best known backstage as one of the members of the Clique, a group of wrestlers including Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and Scott Hall who worked exclusively together and were known for influencing Vince McMahon and the WWF Creative team. Because of his connections with the Clique, he was in line to win the 1996 King of the Ring, but was eventually suspended and buried after the MSG incident where the Clique broke kayfabe after a Shawn Michaels/Diesel match to say goodbye to the departing Nash and Hall.

D-Generation X

His push resumed in 1997, where he was named 1997 King of the Ring. Later that year, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and bodyguard Chyna formed D-Generation X. DX became known for pushing the envelope, as Shawn and Hunter made risque promos, developing the catchphrase and hand motion "Suck It", and sarcastically deriding Bret Hart and Canada. After WrestleMania XIV, Shawn Michaels was forced into retirement due to a back injury, and Triple H took over the leadership position in DX.

Triple H led the "DX Army" throughout 1998; this was the first time he had performed as a face in the WWF and he quickly became one of its most popular wrestlers. It was during this time that Triple H began feuding with the leader of the Nation of Domination and rising WWF heel The Rock. This rivalry eventually lead to a feud over the Intercontinental Championship. Triple H defeated The Rock in a ladder match at SummerSlam 1998 to capture the title. Triple H would not hold the Intercontinental title long, being sidelined with a knee injury he suffered in the ladder match. When The Rock won the World Championship at the Survivor Series in 1998, the rivalry between the two continued but became more of a gang war as DX fought Mr. McMahon's Corporation stable, of which Rock was the crown jewel. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

World Champion

As 1999 began, Triple H began to re-evaluate his position in the WWF. He longed for a shot at the WWF Championship, however due to his inferior popularity compared to Stone Cold Steve Austin he knew that the fans would never want to see him take on another fan favorite. Triple H received a shot at the WWF Championship on the January 25, 1999 edition on RAW in an "I Quit" match against The Rock, but was forced to quit or see his aide Chyna chokeslammed by Kane. Chyna would attack Triple H after the match and join The Corporation. At WrestleMania XV Triple H wrestled as a face for the last time in several months when he beat Kane with the aid of Chyna, who was thought to have rejoined DX. Later on he betrayed his long-time friend and fellow DX member X-Pac by helping a heel Shane McMahon retain the European Championship, thus turning heel and taking Chyna with him. This decision earned him the hatred of the fans, and helped push Triple H further in the direction of the WWE Championship. Triple H joined the Corporation, however this placed him in the same boat as The Rock, a long-time Corporate member. Unable to get along, The Rock took Triple H's place as a face and quickly became one of the hottest superstars in WWE history. 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...

Meanwhile Triple H worked hard to get closer to the WWE Championship. Along with turning heel, Triple H got rid of his old "DX" look and took on the look he has to this day, which included the taping of his fists, new shorter wrestling trunks, the building of more muscle mass and the shortening of his hair. Triple H was changing his image and his personality as he fought to get a World title shot. During mid-1999, Triple H was "groomed" for the World title. Eventually, with the death of the "Corporate Ministry" (the group which was created out of a merger of the Corporation and the Undertaker's Ministry), Triple H found himself closer to the WWF Championship. After numerous failed attempts, at SummerSlam 1999 Triple H, along with Mankind would challenge then-WWE Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin. In a match which featured Governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura as the special guest referee, Triple H lost to Mankind who became World Champion for the third time. 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...

The following night on RAW, Triple H threatened to break Jim Ross's arm if Mankind refused to give him a title shot that night. Mankind gave Triple H a shot and that night Triple H won his first WWF Championship. After winning the title Triple H then "interviewed" Jim Ross to see "what Ross thought of him." JR's reply was that he thought Triple H was a, "No good, drunken S.O.B." Triple H replied by beating JR to the ground. From then onwards, Triple H would feud with the biggest WWE superstars to date: The Rock, Mick Foley, Steve Austin, Vince McMahon, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle and many, many more. He would earn the hatred of fans around the world due to his dirty, under-handed tactics, including the use of his trademark sledgehammer and scheming nature such as forcing Mick Foley out of the WWF. He would also dub himself "The Game", implying that he was at the top of the wrestling world, as well as "The Cerebral Assassin", implying that he was simply smarter than the other wrestlers (as well as more talented). Triple H has claimed that "The Game" tag was initially going to go to the late Owen Hart. Jim Ross James W. (Jim) Ross, also known as J.R., or Good Ol J.R.

The Game

Triple H started out 2000 with little credibility as WWF champion. His feud with Vince McMahon failed to set the world on fire and even outraged fans after McMahon won the title from Triple H during an episode of Smackdown. However, the short-lived feud started the Hunter Hearst Helmsley-Stephanie McMahon storyline that would carry the WWF throughout the next couple of years, when Triple H married Stephanie McMahon in a storyline that had him sabotaging the wedding of McMahon and Test. Andrew Martin (born March 17, 1975 in Whitby, Ontario) is a Canadian professional wrestler better known as Test, who previously performed in World Wrestling Entertainment. ...


Some fans had considered Triple H a transitional champion until The Rock regained the title. His feud with Mick Foley changed that line of thinking, with Triple H winning a Street Fight at the Royal Rumble and a Hell in a Cell match at No Way Out that sent Foley into retirement, both matches were perhaps two of the greatest matches in his career. By the time Triple H shockingly pinned The Rock at WrestleMania 2000 (becoming the first heel to walk out of WrestleMania as champion), he was one of the hottest characters in the WWF, being able to generate enormous heat for his entrance and promos.

Although he had become one of the most hated wrestlers in the WWF, this was not always the case. In the year 2000, Kurt Angle was making advances towards his storyline wife, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley and because of Triple H and his anger towards Angle, the fans took his side and cheered for him to destroy Angle. After Triple H disposed of Angle, he continued to hear the cheers during his feud with Chris Benoit, but in November 2000, he turned heel again when he was revealed to be the man behind "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's accident one year prior. In 2001, Triple H feuded with Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker and would later team with Austin to capture the WWF Tag Team Titles. This article is about the year 2000. ...


The most difficult moment of Triple H's career occurred during a match on a live broadcast of Monday Night RAW on May 21, 2001 when he suffered a legitimate and career-threatening injury. A misstep caused him to suffer a tear in his left quadricep muscle. Despite his inability to place any weight on his leg, Triple H was able to complete the match, something that his fans and fellow wrestlers saw as an admirable display of dedication to the business. He even allowed one of his opponents in the match, Chris Jericho, to place him in his standard finishing maneuver, the "Walls of Jericho", a move that places considerable stress on the quadriceps. The tear required an operation, which was performed by famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, in Birmingham. The rigorous rehabilitation process kept him out of action for over seven months.

Return to wrestling

Triple H returned to RAW on January 7, 2002 at Madison Square Garden, receiving a tremendous ovation. He then went to that year's Royal Rumble, winning it and thus receiving a WWE Undisputed title match in the main event at Wrestlemania X-8. After trouble with wife Stephanie ensued, Hunter demanded a divorce and she aligned herself with then champion, Chris Jericho. In the weeks leading to Wrestlemania X8, Jericho and Stephanie would try to take out Triple H's quad unsuccessfully. Hunter would go on to win the WWE Undisputed Championship at WrestleMania X8 over Jericho. After holding the title for a month, he dropped the title to Hulk Hogan at Backlash thanks to interference from the Undertaker. Triple H then became exclusive to the SmackDown! roster due to the WWE Draft Lottery where he eventually feuded with Taker over the title. Triple H was unsuccessful. About three months later, he would defect to RAW after being persuaded by old friend Shawn Michaels. On July 22, 2002 Triple H turned heel once again by turning on his long time friend Shawn Michaels by pedigreeing him in the middle of the ring during a DX reunion. The following week it was found out that someone smashed Michael's face brutally into a car window, it was revealed to be Hunter who did it to prove that Michaels was 'weak'. These events led to the beginning of a long, heated rivalry between the former partners and an eventual Street Fight at Summerslam '02 in which Michaels won, but afterwards Triple H injured him with a sledgehammer.

Prior to September 2, 2002, WWE recognized only one Champion for both RAW and SmackDown! However, after that year's SummerSlam, champion Brock Lesnar inked a (storyline) deal to become exclusive to SmackDown!, leaving RAW without a champion. RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff would then award the World Heavyweight Championship to Triple H in the form of the old WCW Championship belt. Triple H would go on to hold the belt for almost a year (with the exception on one month in which Michaels held the title) Since that time, Shawn Michaels, Chris Benoit, Randy Orton, Goldberg, Batista, and Kurt Angle, have all held the championship (always won from Triple H with the exception of Randy Orton and Kurt Angle). With the exception of Benoit, Batista, and Kurt Angle (he is still in the middle of his first title reign as World Heavyweight Champion) all have lost it relatively quickly (to Triple H).

In January 2003, Triple H formed Evolution with Ric Flair, Randy Orton, and Batista. Its purpose was to include the greatest wrestlers of the past (Flair), present (HHH), and future (Orton and Batista), and to support Triple H as the World Heavyweight Champion, with other members interfering in matches on his behalf. On a house show in February, both Batista and Randy Orton suffered injuries, setting the Evolution angle back four months until Randy Orton returned. Batista returned in October, and was little more than Evolution's muscle, whereas Orton was supposed to be the successor to Triple H. Evolution was the most dominant force on 'RAW' and helped to keep 'the Game' on top.

Eventually, Triple H kicked Orton out of the group after Orton won the World Heavyweight Championship from Chris Benoit at SummerSlam 2004. Triple H then won the title back only a month later. The feud continued, but the fans resented Orton as a babyface. The original plan was for Randy Orton to wrestle Triple H at WrestleMania 21, but because Batista had gained significant amounts of popularity in late 2004, he was the one chosen to feud with Triple H up until and after WrestleMania.


Batista won the 2005 Royal Rumble, then turned on Triple H the next month after learning of Triple H's attempts to trick him into jumping to SmackDown! so Triple H would not have to defend his title against him at WrestleMania 21. Batista defeated Triple H at WrestleMania 21 and became the World Heavyweight Champion. With only Flair and Triple H remaining, Evolution was for the most part dissolved.


Triple H lost the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 21, in which he was defeated by Batista. In a subsequent broadcast, Triple H suffered a stinger (minor but painful nerve damage to the head and neck) after a botched legdrop from Rosey.

Trivia

  • When Triple H uses a sledgehammer as a weapon, it is in fact a real sledgehammer, and not a prop as is widely believed. Triple H covers the head of the sledgehammer with his hand just before it strikes his opponent. On one occasion when Triple H did use a fake sledgehammer he accidentally injured his opponent, The Undertaker.
  • While wrestling as "Terra Ryzin" in World Championship Wrestling, Levesque was given only five minutes to create his new character, that of "the French guy" (WCW officials realised that his surname sounded French). Levesque created the character of "Jean-Paul Levesque", and was asked to speak "with a French accent" as he could not speak French).
  • He is a longtime Motörhead fan. His theme song was recorded by the band, as is Evolution's theme song.
  • Levesque faced Mick Foley in Foley's two "retirement matches" in 2000 at the Royal Rumble and No Way Out. He claims that his bloody street fight with Foley at the 2000 Royal Rumble "made Triple H the superstar that he is today."
  • Levesque is a WWE "Grand Slam" Champion (a title given to wrestlers that have held every major WWE title). Other WWE "Grand Slam" Champions include Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, and Eddie Guerrero.
  • Levesque broke his Survivor Series drought when he defeated Ric Flair in the brutal "Last Man Standing" match. Since 1995, Triple H has never won a match at the Survivor Series. His record stands at 8 losses and 1 win.
