^ Wow, talk about a match that holds up seven years after the fact.

^ Triple H bragged about what he'd done to Flair the next day on Raw, talking about how he made sure Flair was put in the finest hospital.

[16]
Hunter Hearst Helmsley in 1996.
.Although he was heavily pushed in the first few months after his debut, Levesque's career stalled during 1996, starting off with being mired in a feud with Duke "The Dumpster" Droese following a loss in the Free For All at the 1996 Royal Rumble.^ Helmsley's next feud started at the '96 Royal Rumble, as he faced off against Duke "The Dumpster" Droese for the right to enter the Rumble as #30.

^ By losing the match, Helmsley had to enter the Royal Rumble first.

^ During the month, Helmsley continuously assaulted the Rock, breaking his arm at one point by throwing him off the stage, then later attacking the arm with a sledgehammer.

[17][18] .Up until that event, his angle included appearing on television each week with a different female valet (which included Playboy Playmates Shae Marks and Tylyn John).^ The WWF should be showing maybe one old Wrestlemania Match a week(even if it's on MTV) to get everyone pumped up for the big event.

[1] .Sable was his valet at WrestleMania XII, and after his loss to Ultimate Warrior,[19] as part of the storyline, he took his aggressions out on her.^ Helmsley next entered into a short feud with the Ultimate Warrior, who was making his return to the WWF. At Wrestlemania XII, Helmsley suffered a devestating defeat, as the Warrior won in less than 2 minutes.

^ Helmsley blamed the loss on his valet, Sable, but when he went to attack her, he was stopped by Sable's husband, Marc Mero.

^ WWF Wrestlemania XII ('96) = HHH was quickly defeated by the Ultimate Warrior.

.The debuting Marc Mero—her real-life husband—came to her rescue, starting a feud between the two wrestlers.^ Four of the wrestlers would start out in chambers, with the other two starting the match.

^ Things finally broke down between the two during a match between Helmsley and Booker T, when Nash came to ringside, helping up both Triple H and Michaels.

^ Helmsley blamed the loss on his valet, Sable, but when he went to attack her, he was stopped by Sable's husband, Marc Mero.

[20]
.On May 28, 1996, Helmsley appeared on WWF Superstars against Marty Garner.^ WWF "Beware of Dog" (May 26, '96) = Helmsley was beaten by Marc Mero.

^ Not long afterwards, Slaughter, looking for some revenge, ordered that Shawn Michaels would have to defend his WWF European Title against Helmsley.

^ MEMO TO BROCK LESNAR; Dear Mr. Lesnar, It certainly appears that your future is brighter than that of any other up and coming WWF Superstar.

[21] .When Levesque attempted to perform the Pedigree, Garner mistook the maneuver for a double underhook suplex and tried to jump up with the move, causing him to land squarely on top of his head and suffer neck damage.^ They fight up top as Swagger is going for a super back suplex, but Hardy avoids it and knocks Swagger back to the mat.

^ This soon backfired on Edge, though, as both Triple H & Cena decided to pull him into the ring and double-team him, trying to one-up each other by beating Edge into the ground.

^ But Helmsley would come back once more, knocking Jericho out with a bat, then Pedigreeing him on top of the cage for the pinfall victory.

[21] .Garner sued the WWF, eventually settling out of court and later discussed the incident in an appearance on The Montel Williams Show.^ Helmsley came to the next show with a court order, stating that McMahon couldn't get within 50 feet of DX. DX then later attacked Shane McMahon and Test.

^ At the next show, Helmsley bragged about how he had beaten everyone in the WWF. This brought out the Undertaker, who didn't quite agree with Helmsley's assessment.

^ Triple H, RVD, and the Big Show had it out a week later, with each giving a speech beforehand about how important the title shot was.

The MSG Incident.
.Levesque was known backstage as one of the members of The Kliq, a group of wrestlers including Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and Scott Hall, who were known for influencing Vince McMahon and the WWF creative team.^ The group included Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Shawn Michaels and Sean Waltman, some of the best in the business at the time.

^ After the incident, Hall and Nash left the WWF, with Sean Waltman (X-Pac) leaving soon after.

^ Alors que la carrière de Helmsley semblait décoller à la WWF, le fameux incident de "Kayfabe" arrivait : à Madison Square Garden, Helmsley avait un match contre Razor Ramon (aka Scott Hall) pendant que Shawn Michaels luttait contre Diesel (aka Kevin Nash).

[17] .He was scheduled to win the 1996 King of the Ring tournament, but was demoted from championship contender to "jobber to the stars" after the Madison Square Garden Incident, in which the Kliq broke character after a match to say goodbye to the departing Nash and Hall.^ Alors que la carrière de Helmsley semblait décoller à la WWF, le fameux incident de "Kayfabe" arrivait : à Madison Square Garden, Helmsley avait un match contre Razor Ramon (aka Scott Hall) pendant que Shawn Michaels luttait contre Diesel (aka Kevin Nash).

^ Triple H was also scheduled to compete in the '99 King of the Ring Tournament, but refused, saying that he had nothing to prove.

^ At the '99 King of the Ring, Helmsley tried to help Chyna in the quarterfinals of the tournament, but was stopped by Commissioner Shawn Michaels.

[22] .Despite the punishment, Helmsley did have several successes following the MSG Incident.^ Since Michaels was currently the World Champ, the only member of the Clique that Vince McMahon could punish for the incident was Helmsley.

Mr. Perfect became his manager and he won the WWF Intercontinental Championship for the first time on October 21, 1996, defeating Marc Mero.[20][22] When Mr. Perfect left the WWF, his departure was explained to be a result of Helmsley turning his back on his manager as soon as he won the Intercontinental Championship. .Levesque held the belt for nearly four months before dropping it to Rocky Maivia on the February 13, 1997 special edition of Monday Night Raw, called Thursday Raw Thursday.^ WWF Final Four (February '97) = HHH lost to the IC Champ, Rocky Maivia.

^ Due to an incident where Mr. Perfect "stole" his harem of women, Helmsley challenged the man to a match at Monday Night Raw.

^ I do know that if RAW continues its’ downward spiral, ESPN’s Monday Night Football will look all the more enticing.

[23] For a very brief time, Helmsley was accompanied by Mr. Hughes, who was his storyline bodyguard.[24] .After losing the Intercontinental title, he feuded with Goldust, defeating him at WrestleMania 13.^ Helmsley & Chyna fought against Goldust & Marlena all the way up to Wrestlemania XIII, where Helmsley and Goldust met in a final, feud-ending match.

^ WWF Summerslam '98 = Helmsley defeated the Rock in a "Ladder" match to win the Intercontinental Title.

^ They tried elevating him a couple of times, but he never seemed to rise above Intercontinental title chances.

[25] .During their feud, Chyna debuted as his new bodyguard.^ It was soon announced that the woman, Chyna, was Triple H's new bodyguard.

[26]

D-Generation X (1997–1999)

.Helmsley's push resumed in 1997, when he won the 1997 King of the Ring tournament by defeating Mankind in the finals.^ Triple H was also scheduled to compete in the '99 King of the Ring Tournament, but refused, saying that he had nothing to prove.

^ Helmsley then went into the finals against Mankind.

^ At the '99 King of the Ring, Helmsley tried to help Chyna in the quarterfinals of the tournament, but was stopped by Commissioner Shawn Michaels.

[22][27] .Later that year, Shawn Michaels, Helmsley, Chyna and Rick Rude formed D-Generation X (DX).^ But during the match, while Chyna was distracted taking care of Shawn Michaels, a mystery man, Test, made his first appearance, attacking Helmsley and keeping him from winning the title.

^ Helmsley teamed up with Ric Flair & Batista on the Raw following the PPV, in a Handicap Match, vs. Shawn Michaels & Rob Van Dam.

^ Mankind later beat Chyna for the spot, then took on Helmsley, with both men being counted out in their fight.

.This stable later became known for pushing the envelope, as Michaels and Helmsley made risqué promos—spawning the catchphrase "Suck It", using a "crotch chop" hand motion,[28] and sarcastically deriding Bret Hart and Canada.^ Some surprises....I'm predicting at least one, if not all three of these people showing up at Wrestlemania....Shawn Michaels, Scott Steiner, and Bret Hart.

^ Michaels made the save, using his superkick to knock Benoit down for a 2 count.

^ Later that night, Helmsley joined with the rest of Degeneration-X to help Michaels take out the British Bulldog.

By that point, Helmsley had fully dropped the "blueblood snob" gimmick, appearing in T-shirts and leather. .During this period, his ring name was shortened to simply Triple H.[22] Even after the DX versus Hart Foundation storyline ended, Helmsley continued to feud with the sole remaining member Owen Hart over the WWF European Championship.^ Helmsley then started to feud with Owen Hart, who wanted to reclaim the European Title for the Hart Foundation.

^ Helmsley continued to feud with the Rock after Wrestlemania, while also dealing with other concerns.

^ In the match, Helmsley and Angle broke up each other's pin attempts, with Triple H getting the advantage near the end.

This ended in a match between the two at WrestleMania XIV, with the stipulation that Chyna had to be handcuffed to then-Commissioner Sgt. Slaughter. .Helmsley won after Chyna threw powder into Slaughter's eyes, momentarily "blinding" him and allowing her to interfere in the match.^ This plan didn't work, however, as Chyna threw powder into Slaughter's face, blinding him.

^ During the violent match, Chyna tried to interfere, only to have powder thrown into her eyes, blinding her.

^ Helmsley made the next big impact of the match, hitting Foley with a chair, then Pedigree'ing him on the chair to get the pinfall.

.After WrestleMania, Michaels was forced into temporary retirement due to a legitimate back injury sustained at the Royal Rumble,[29] with Triple H taking over the leadership position in DX,[22] claiming that his now-former associate had "dropped the ball". He introduced the returning X-Pac the night after WrestleMania and joined forces with the New Age Outlaws.^ With Stephanie again at his side, Triple H went into the Rumble as one of the favorites.

^ At Raw following Wrestlemania XIV, Helmsley came out and announced that, since Michaels was injured, he was taking over as leader of Degeneration-X. He claimed that Michaels had dropped the ball, so he had picked it up.

^ Triple H was shown in the back, spitting out his water due to the shock of the moment.

[22][30] As 1998 went along, D-Generation X became more popular, turning the group from villains to fan favorites. .It was also during this time that Triple H began a feud with the leader of the Nation of Domination and rising WWF villain, The Rock.^ It was a major success for the WWF. Degeneration-X then became involved in a wild feud with the Nation of Domination, since Owen Hart had joined the group to fight Helmsley.

^ Triple H then took out the Rock with a Pedigree, then pinned Austin to stay the WWF World Champion.

^ Triple H also had problems with X-Pac, but the two managed to patch things up in their war against the Nation of Domination.

[10] .This storyline rivalry eventually led to a feud over the Intercontinental Championship, which Triple H won in a ladder match at SummerSlam.^ WWF Survivor Series '99 = HHH lost a "Triple Threat" match to the Big Show, who won the World Title.

^ WWE Armageddon '08 (December 14) = Triple H lost a "Triple Threat" Match to Jeff Hardy, who won the WWE Title.

^ Triple H led his team, but had to watch as Orton got felled by an Edge Spear, losing the match.

[10] He did not hold the title long, however, as he was sidelined with a legitimate knee injury.[10] .When The Rock won the WWF Championship at Survivor Series,[31] the rivalry between the two continued, as DX fought The Corporation stable, of which The Rock was the main star.^ WWF Survivor Series '99 = HHH lost a "Triple Threat" match to the Big Show, who won the World Title.

^ WWF Survivor Series '00 = Helmsley and Steve Austin fought to a No-Contest in a "No DQ" match.

^ WWF Judgement Day '00 = Helmsley won an "Ironman" match over the Rock to regain the World Heavyweight Title.

.Triple H received a shot at the WWF Championship on the January 25, 1999 edition of Raw in an "I Quit" match against The Rock, but the match ended when Triple H was forced to quit or see his aide Chyna chokeslammed by Kane.^ WWF Survivor Series '99 = HHH lost a "Triple Threat" match to the Big Show, who won the World Title.

^ During the match, Helmsley & Flair seemed to be on the way to victory, as Triple H nailed Kane with the Pedigree.

^ They set up a Triple Threat Match for the World Title on Raw, with Helmsley making the stipulation that the match, happening now, wouldn't happen at Wrestlemania.

[10] .This began a new angle for Triple H, as Chyna betrayed him by attacking him after the match and joining The Corporation.^ She betrayed Helmsley and joined with the Corporation.

^ But during the match, while Chyna was distracted taking care of Shawn Michaels, a mystery man, Test, made his first appearance, attacking Helmsley and keeping him from winning the title.

^ After the match, Batista hoisted Orton onto his shoulders, apparently celebrating with him while Triple H gave him the thumbs up.

[10]
.As part of the storyline, at WrestleMania XV, Triple H beat Kane with the aid of Chyna, who was thought to have rejoined DX.[10] Later on in the night, he betrayed his long-time friend and fellow DX member X-Pac by helping Shane McMahon retain the European Championship and joined The Corporation.^ Later on that night, Helmsley, with Chyna, tried to help X-Pac win the World Title.

^ She betrayed Helmsley and joined with the Corporation.

^ Just as it seemed, though, that they were both becoming faces, they interfered in X-Pac's European Title match later on, helping Shane McMahon retain his belt.

[10] .After Triple H's villain turn in early 1999, he moved away from his DX look, taping his fists for matches, sporting new and shorter wrestling trunks, and adopting a shorter hairstyle.^ It all came to be early in the match as, after Cena used a closed fist on Shane, Vince disqualified him, sending Cena to the back and leaving Triple H & Shane against Michaels in a "Handicap" Match.

^ However, after the match, Triple H's music hit, and the Game walked out, with Flair turning again on Batista with a low blow.

^ As an upset Vince ran to the ring and held his son, Triple H walked away, looking to be in shock and saying that he didn't mean to hit Shane with the sledgehammer.

[10] .Levesque's gimmick changed as he fought to earn a WWF title shot.^ Another important event at the PPV involved the Tag-Team Turmoil match, with the winner earning a tag-team title shot.

^ He then challenged for a shot against the Rock, who held the WWF World Heavyweight Title at the time.

^ Helmsley was able to avenge his title loss, getting the victory over the Hulkster and earning the title shot.

[10] .After numerous failed attempts at winning the championship, Triple H and Mankind challenged WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin to a Triple Threat match at SummerSlam, which featured Jesse "The Body" Ventura as the special guest referee.^ Shawn Michaels is the special guest referee.

^ Steve Austin was the special referee.

^ McMahon also had a surprise for Triple H, as he wanted him to be the guest referee for the match.

.Mankind won the match by pinning Austin.^ The match ended with Mankind hitting a double-arm DDT on Austin, allowing him to win the World Title.

^ Austin later hit Triple H with the Stunner, and Triple H was able to land the Pedigree, with Mankind breaking up the pin both times.
