Triple H Biography:
It takes a lot to hate someone so much who is so damn good, but Hunter Hearst-Helmsley, better known simply as Triple H has accomplished just that. Despite being a highly celebrated 10-time world champion, there is no denying the pure diabolical evil that is Triple H. A strategic mastermind, Triple H is considered by the industry as a whole as the most resilient champion in the history of WWE, defending his championship against anyone, not always by choice, but seemingly coming out on top more often than not using his pedigree in-ring skills, wit and ingenious schemes, swerving all his adversaries with plots opponents simply don’t see coming.
Indeed, Triple H plays the game perhaps better than anyone else, hence his nickname “The Game” – which he shares with the hit Motorhead song specifically made for Triple H’s ring music. Utilizing a truly intimidating ring entrance to psyche out his adversaries, Triple H’s intensity, shredded muscular physique and reputation alone could strike fear into his opponents before the bell even rings! Of course, Triple H’s imposing in-ring presence differs drastically away from the ring, with “The Game” dressing in dashing custom made suits and a one of a kind Rolex watch around his wrist. There’s no denying that he is just as respected as he is dangerous. Unfortunately, he just happens to be a man full of hate, greed and desire to devour all in his path in regaining the World Heavyweight and WWE Championships.
As his skills as a leader of D-Genration X developed, so did his masterful moves to ensure his continued success, adding “Nature Boy” Ric Flair as an ally and associate. Around this point in time, RAW began to see an influx of new Superstars, leading to the always shrewd Triple H investing in his future by securing two of the hottest prospects on the scene: Batista and Randy Orton. As a four-man clique known as Evolution, the foursome dominated RAW, dined on championship gold, flew $20 million private jets and partied the nights away. This was the best of the best. The elite. They were Evolution.
Unfortunately, Triple H’s greed ultimately nearly consumed him. His need to be the man and ace of Evolution was challenged first by Randy Orton and most recently by Batista, leading to the group self-destructing and Orton and Batista breaking away into Superstars free of Triple H calling the shots for his own best interests instead of theirs.
Recently, Triple H has been engulfed in a bloody war with Batista, seeing Batista defeat and win the World Heavyweight Championship from “The Game” at WrestleMania 21 in Hollywood. Despite this, Triple H has vowed to get Batista and win back his World Heavyweight Championship but unfortunately, Batista was drafted to SmackDown as part of the 2005 Draft Lottery. With a new chapter beginning, the smart money is on “The Game” rising once again to his throne as the WWE Champion as there are few if any who can outsmart or outwrestle Triple H … let alone escape the Pedigree – the proverbial end game for all. – copyright 2005 NBC Universal Entertainment Cable Group.
