Triple H calls himself "The Game," and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who disagrees with that assumption.
Since making his WWE debut in the spring of 1995 (as Hunter Hearst Helmsley), Triple H has done it all in the sports-entertainment
industry. He's the only man in the history of the business to have been a Grand Slam Champion and to have won both a King
of the Ring and a Royal Rumble.
Triple H's dedication to the business was never more evident than on the May 21, 2001, episode of RAW. On that night, The
Game teamed with Stone Cold Steve Austin to take on Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho in a Tag Team Championship match. During
the bout, Triple H tore his left quadriceps muscle completely off the bone. Yet The Game found the heart to finish the bout,
never once even thinking about giving up.
After eight months of hellacious rehab, The Game returned to a hero's welcome on the Jan. 7, 2002, episode of RAW. The
fans of WWE sympathized with Triple H, thus making him one of the top fan favorites of that time.
Triple H's honeymoon with the fans did not last long, however. Soon thereafter, The Game's true colors came shining through
and he has once again found himself listening to the fans' jeers. To further solidify the fact that he doesn't care about
the fans, Triple H aligned himself with "the dirtiest player in the game," Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista. Together, they
called themselves Evolution.
However, The Game's alliance with Orton would be short-lived. At Summerslam, after Orton won the World Heavyweight title,
Triple H and the other members of Evolution turned on him, leaving him a beaten, bloodied mess in the ring.
At Taboo Tuesday, Triple H almost lost the title to Shawn Michaels, having been laid out on the canvas by Sweet Chin Music.
Fortunately for The Game, HBK's title shot evaporated when he was speared by Edge allowing Triple H to make the cover.
Since then, the Cerebral Assassin has found himself at the center of a struggle for power. After Evolution took control
of Raw for one night, the remaining superstars staged a coup, storming the ring and battering Triple H and his companions.
The Game himself was on the receving end of an RKO from Orton. With Survivor Series looming, Triple H finds himself at a crossroads
