Triple H - Becoming "The Game"

Triple H is one of the WWE's biggest key players. Starting his career off as the Greenwich blueblood, Hunter seemed destined to stay in the WWF's midcard during the mid 90s, but an on-screen partnership with friend Shawn Michaels would elevate Triple H to the next level.

When Shawn retired in 1998, many thought Triple H might've floundered back into the WWF's midcard. The night after WrestleMania XIV, Triple H famously "picked up the ball" that Shawn dropped, creating his own D-Generation X stable that went on to became insanely popular. Wanting more from his wrestling career though, Triple H made the decision to leave DX at the height of their popularity. HHH wanted to become the biggest heel in WWF history and he wanted the WWF Championship, something that wasn't afforded to him while he was in D-Generation X.

This video from Wrestling Bios takes a look at Triple H leaving DX in 1999, eventually leading to Triple H changing his character and becoming "The Game". Topics included in this video include:
00:00 - Triple H leaves D-Generation X
06:06 - Triple H in The Corporation / Corporate Ministry
10:49 - Fully Loaded 1999 and the Triple H Shoot Interview
14:09 - The SummerSlam 1999 controversy
19:07 - Triple H wins his first WWF Championship

    I would love to see you cover the HHH vs Test storyline which was the period when Paul got married and break up with Chyna. I bet there are a lot of interesting facts there.

    People bitch and say HHH was only successful because of getting with Stephanie or using HBK to get to the top but he was Intercontinental Champ before he even got with Steph.

    I'm hoping that the Rock comes back and if he does him and Triple H should face one more time They had great chemistry in the ring, and the HHH vs ROCK rivalry is one fo the best of both there careers, if either want a last ride send this is how it should go

    Honestly. I understand the fans that think triple h was fast tracked and his “ family “ affiliation. However I think that it’s valid if he was on top or whatever and was just garbage. But I don’t see it. If NXT was a flop and his career was too I could understand that argument. But I don’t see it like that

    Why didn't they let Triple H pin Mick in the triple threat? Steve Austin doesn't have to get pinned to lose the belt right, plus it could've made for a story where Steve Austin fueds with him cause he never lost it legitimately

    Did Triple H benefit from his ties with Steph? 100%. Did he deserve it? 100%. Triple H was going to win the 1996 king of the ring but because of the “Curtain Call,” was held back. If anything was unfair about his story it’s what the company did to him in 1996. So any boost he got from the company is just due the way I see it.

    Yes Triple H did have some questionable outcomes with matches, business dealings, etc. But he is (in my opinion) the best heel of the new millennium. The pedigree is still the most aggressive and picture perfect finisher to date (along with the F5 and Jackhammer 😊)

    As a kid, I LOVED to HATE HHH. As an adult, I realize how important he was to the WWF. The baby face isn’t the most important player in the game. The Heel is. And he IS THE GAME! Did they go overboard with his character in the early to mid 2000’s? Yes. But 1999-2000 HHH was so essential to the success of the company.

    I've never been a big HHH guy, but I won't deny what he's accomplished. One thing said at the beginning of the video is that some believe his rise to the the top was fast-tracked. I personally don't agree with that. He'd been in the WWE for quite a while before rising to the main event level, and he became the WWE Champion before his relationship with Stephanie had begun. I do obviously believe that his run on top was definitely solidified and prolonged by being with Stephanie though.

    Triple H is an unabashed politician and regular burier, but the undeniable truth is that he's a legit main eventer and all-time great. Sheer fan reaction has turned him face at least four times, that doesn't happen to wrestlers they don't care about. His toughness also cannot be questioned, especially after finishing matches with torn quads. Good face, legendary heel.

Yes I know it's booked that way but it's just funny seeing how he had no trouble taking out 4 or 5 guys on his own then suddenly has trouble doing that. LOL

    Every successful gimmick well 95% of them is truly wrestlers being themselves but turned it up only Steve Williams could've been Stone Cold only Dwayne Johnson could've been The Rock only Paul Levesque could've been Triple H definitely only Mark Calloway could've been The Undertaker I'm sure Glen Jacobs put a bit of himself into the Kane gimmick or Dustin Rhodes and the Goldust gimmick there has to be a level of authenticity for the gimmick to really get over

    Why would u get down voted for saying the truth? Triple H is one of the greatest heals in the history of wrestling. To stand out in that era meant something and he stood out. He was the perfect foil for some of the greatest faces in WWE history in The Rock and Stone Cold. I don’t care who he’s married to, the body of work that he’s put in, the matches, title runs, promos, antics, make him one of the best ever. That’s not up for debate.
