The meaning of «triple h»

Paul Michael Levesque (born July 27, 1969), better known by the ring name Triple H, is an American professional wrestler, business executive, and actor. He is currently signed to WWE and is the Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development of WWE. He is also creator and executive producer of the WWE brand NXT.

Born and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire, Triple H began his professional wrestling training from 1990-1991 and his career from 1992-1993 with the International Wrestling Federation (IWF) under the ring name Terra Ryzing. He joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1994-1995 and was repackaged as a French-Canadian aristocrat named Jean-Paul Lévesque,[6] and was later repackaged in 1995 when he signed with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE), where he became Hunter Hearst Helmsley, and later, Triple H.[7]

In WWF, Triple H gained industry fame after co-founding the influential D-Generation X stable, which became a major element of the "Attitude Era" in the 1990s. After winning his first WWF Championship in 1999, he became a fixture of the company's main event scene,[4][8] and was widely regarded as the best wrestler in North America by the turn of the millennium.[9] Triple H has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, closing the company's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, on seven occasions.[a]

Triple H has also won a number of championships in his career, being a five-time Intercontinental Champion, a three-time world tag team champion (two World Tag Team Championship reigns, and one Unified WWE Tag Team Championship reign), a two-time European Champion, and a fourteen-time world champion, making him the company's seventh Triple Crown Champion and second Grand Slam Champion. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, and a King of the Ring tournament winner.[10][11] Later in his career, Triple H gained notability for his behind-the-scenes work at WWE, creating the developmental branch NXT, and gaining praise for his business acumen in professional wrestling.[12][13]

Outside of wrestling, Triple H has been a figure of substantial media attention due to his marriage to Stephanie McMahon, daughter of Vince and Linda McMahon, who are majority owners of WWE.[14] In 2019, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the D-Generation X group.

Paul Michael Levesque[15] was born in Nashua, New Hampshire,[16] on July 27, 1969.[6] He has a sister named Lynn.[17] Levesque watched his first wrestling match, involving Chief Jay Strongbow, when he was young. He attended Nashua South High School, where he played baseball and basketball.[18] Following his graduation in 1987, Levesque continued to enter bodybuilding competitions—having taken up bodybuilding at the age of 14 because he wanted to look like the professional wrestlers he saw on television—and won the 1988 Mr. Teenage New Hampshire competition at the age of 19.[19][17] While working as a manager of a gym in Nashua, he was introduced to world champion powerlifter Ted Arcidi, who was employed by WWE at the time. Eventually, after numerous attempts, Levesque persuaded Arcidi to introduce him to former wrestler Killer Kowalski, who ran a professional wrestling school in Malden, Massachusetts.[20]
