Early Life |Triple H Net Worth 2022
Paul Michael Levesque, better known as Triple H, was born on July 27, 1969, in Nashua, New Hampshire. His first wrestling match was in 1974, and it featured Chief Jay Strongbow. He played baseball and basketball at Nashua South High School. He began bodybuilding at the age of 14 in order to resemble the professional wrestlers he saw on television.
After graduating from high school in 1987, he continued to compete in bodybuilding competitions. In 1988, he was crowned Mr. Teenage New Hampshire. He was 19 years old. He was the manager of a gym in Nashua when he met world champion Ted Arcidid, who was working for the WWE at the time.
Triple H persuaded him to meet Killer Kowalski, a former wrestler who ran a pro wrestling school in Massachusetts at the time. Levesque relocated to Malden, Massachusetts in 1992 to attend Killer Kowalski’s school. One of his classmates was Chyna, a future WWF legend.
Career | Triple H Net Worth 2022
Under the ring name Terra Ryzing, Triple H made his professional debut in 1992 against Flying Tony Roy. Tony Roy was defeated. He won the IWF Heavyweight Championship in July 1992 when he defeated Mad Dog Richard. Levesque signed a one-year contract with World Championship Wrestling in 1994.
In his first televised match, he faced a villain named Terror Risin’. Keith Cole was defeated. He quickly changed his ring name to Terra Ryzing, which he used for a few months before re-branding himself as Jean-Paul Levesque. As part of his character’s schtick, he was asked to speak with a French accent.
Levesque met with Vince McMahon to talk about joining his league, but McMahon wasn’t interested at the time. However, not long after seeing Levesque’s match at Starrcade, McMahon was sufficiently impressed to make him an offer, and Levesque joined the WWE in January 1995.
As Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Triple H made his WWE debut. He appeared in pre-recorded vignettes, instructing viewers on proper etiquette. Helmsley made his WWF pay-per-view debut at SummerSlam, defeating Bob Holly. In 1996, his career took a turn for the worse, beginning with a feud with Duke “The Dumpster” Droese following a loss in the 1996 Royal Rumble Free for All.
Helmsley won the 1997 King of the Ring tournament when he defeated Mankind in the finals. D-Generation X was formed later that year by Shawn Michaels, Helmsley, Chyna, and Rick Rude (DX). This group was known for pushing the boundaries. This stable was a big part of the 1990s’ “Attitude Era.” During this time, his ring name was abbreviated to Triple H.
Triple H has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, including closing WrestleMania, the company’s flagship annual event, seven times (tied for the most with Hulk Hogan).
By January 2000, Triple H had dubbed himself “The Game,” implying that he had reached the pinnacle of the wrestling world, and had been dubbed “The Cerebral Assassin.” On the January 3 episode of Raw Is War, Triple H defeated Big Show to win his third WWF Championship. In May 20011, he tore a quad muscle, which nearly cost him his career.
He had been unemployed for eight months. In 2002, he returned to the ring. On January 7, 2002, at Madison Square Garden, Triple H made his return to Raw. He won the Royal Rumble and was given an Undisputed WWF Championship match at WrestleMania X8, which he won by defeating Chris Jericho. After a month of holding the title, Triple H handed it over to Hulk Hogan.
Triple H formed the Evolution stable with Ric Flair, Randy Orton, and Batista in February 2003. For the World Tag Team Championship, Triple H and Flair faced off against Rob Van Dam and Kane, but they were defeated.
From 2003 to 2004, the group was pushed on Raw, and their dominance peaked after Armageddon, when every member of Evolution left the pay-per-view with a title. Triple H held the World Heavyweight Championship for the majority of 2003, which he successfully defended against Booker T at WrestleMania XIX in an angle with racist overtones. After 280 days, he lost the title to Goldberg at Unforgiven in September 2003, in a match with the stipulation that if Goldberg lost, he would have to retire.
Triple H has won a number of championships throughout his career, including:
- 5-time Intercontinental Champion
- 3-time world tag team champion
- 2-time European Champion
- 14-time world champion
- 2-time Royal Rumble winner
- King of the Ring
These days, Triple H works behind the scenes at WWE, where he founded the developmental division NXT and gained recognition for his business acumen in professional wrestling.
Triple H compared the WWE to Disney in an interview about life behind the scenes. He stated: “We are the Disney characters. We are more than just one-dimensional entertainment. Consider this: ten years ago, Marvel was just the guys who made comic books. We are and will continue to be a growing global content provider for all types of entertainment.”
