There was a funny moment that happened over the weekend.
And it involved Triple H. “The Game” has been a member of the WWE since 1995, and he has risen through the ranks of the sports entertainment company to be where he is today as executive vice president of talent, live events and creative, a senior producer for NXT, and one of the best superstars in the business.
Throughout his 20-plus years with, The Game has had some incredible matches against some world class opponents, including John Cena, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Randy Orton, Batista, Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, Sting and Seth Rollins.
Back in 1997, he co-founded the influential D-Generation X stable with Michaels. This group became a major element of the Attitude Era. Following his first WWE Title reign, he began a storyline marriage with Stephanie McMahon in 1999 that jumped started his reign on top.
Triple H won a total of 14 world championships and led stables The McMahon-Helmsley Faction, Evolution, and The Authority. After legitimately marrying McMahon in 2003, he became a member of the McMahon family.
Since 2011, Triple H has curtailed his in-ring appearances as he has taken on a greater behind-the-scenes role within WWE. During his professional wrestling career, he has held a total of 25 championships including nine reigns as WWF/WWE Champion and five as WWE’s World Heavyweight Champion.
Also, he is the winner of the 1997 King of the Ring tournament and the 2002 and 2016 Royal Rumbles. He has headlined WrestleMania, WWE’s flagship pay-per-view, a record seven times, tied with Hulk Hogan.
While Triple H got a bad wrap for marrying Vince McMahon’s daughter when he was still an active wrestler, not many people thought that he would be in the position that he is now.
While it was believed that Triple H would be an executive in WWE, it was pretty much ruled out that he would be the guy in control of everything. Triple H even went on record by saying that he didn’t want to wear a tie and suit.
However, that all changed when McMahon pushed for his son-in-law to slowly but surely become someone he could lean on not only with creative but business related things.
Before NXT, which Triple H created, WWE had OVW and other developmental brands to get talents that they saw as draws ready for the big stage.
At the time, the indie scene was a totally different place than it is right now. Triple H believed that they needed to build within instead of reach out to other promotions and grab their talent. Thus, NXT was born, and later WWE created the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Under Triple H’s lead, NXT became the third brand under the WWE umbrella and was a hot show. They have gone from local shows in Florida to traveling the world and even having TakeOver events.
After Sunday’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wells Fargo Center on the WWE Network, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey spoke with members of the media.
It appears that the newly signed WWE talent was busy after the show as Triple H needed to sneak a photo of the former UFC Bantamweight Champion. It went viral and Triple H responded by writing the following:
“I know that this looks funny … but I’m actually working on a side project for the Hair Club for Men!#HesAlsoAClient.”
