Paul Levesque is one of the most prized graduates of Killer Kowalski's wrestling school in Massachusetts. He made his wrestling debut in 1992, and while known as Terra Ryzing, he won the Independent Wrestling Federation championship the organization affiliated with Kowalski's school.
In January of 1994, Terra Ryzing made his way to WCW. His very first televised match took place on WCW Worldwide where he defeated Brian Armstrong, who ironically would become Hunter's DX stablemate The Road Dogg years later. Although a talented young grappler, Terra was stuck in midcard matches against jobbers, and rarely faced any real competition. He once challenged Larry Zbysko for the WCW Television title in May of 1994, but lost the match. Soon Terra Ryzing disappeared from WCW, but Hunter returned using his real name of Jean Paul Levesque. He portrayed a French Canadian "blue blood", but his status in the company remained the same. Levesque appeared at Starrcade in 1994 where he battled Alex Wright, and again Jean Paul came out on the losing end.
When 1995 rolled around, WCW started making plans to put Levesque together with fellow "blue blood" Steven Regal to form a tag team. But Jean Paul had had enough. He left WCW and promptly signed with the WWF. In May of 1995, Hunter Hearst Helmsley debuted. He immediately climbed the ranks to midcard status, beating jobbers and other midcarders with his move, the Pedigree. He portrayed an "American Blue Blood", a spoiled rich kid from Greenwich, Connecticut. He always brought a beautiful valet with him to each match, never having the same woman accompany him twice. He was hated by the fans. And that's exactly what the WWF was counting on.
In 1997, after already having won the Intercontinental and European titles, Triple H alligned himself with real-life friend Shawn Michaels as well as Paul's real-life girlfriend Chyna to form D-Generation X. It was his affiliation with DX that allowed Hunter to reach the next level of success in the WWF. Then when Michaels left the wrestling business following Wrestlemania XIV in 1998, Triple H took over the reigns of the group and added new members in X-Pac and the New Age Outlaws (The Road Dogg and Billy Gunn). DX became the most popular stable in wrestling, and with Triple H at the helm, he became one of the most popular wrestlers in the business. He would subsequently leave the group following Wrestlemania XV, and developed a vicious, no-nonsense attitude that eventually led to his realizing his dream of winning the WWF world title.During this time, Test and Stephanie McMahon were supposed to get "married". The famous wedding episode of RAW had a scene where Triple H kidnapped a knocked out Stephanie, and cheaply married her at a crackpot wedding chapel. This would set up the Vince McMahon vs. Triple H match at Armageddon 1999, where Stephanie decided that once you go blueblood, you can't go back to anything else As husband and wife, Stephanie and Triple H led the World Wrestling Federation into the new millennium with the McMahon-Helmsley era.
Big Show was faileing badly as a champ, and Vince McMahon came to his senses and immediately had Triple H beat Big Show on a televised event. Instead of seeing more Big Show vs. Triple H matches, Vince McMahon took Foley's own advise and put Cactus Jack in a big feud with Triple H. At Royal Rumble 2000, one of the most brutal matches happened, ever! Triple H busted his ass, and elevated himself to a new level in the WWF, and Foley proved that he had a few more great matches left in him. It would then lead to another great match at No Way Out 2000, with the Hell in the Cell against Foley. Triple H came out as a new brutal champion, and Foley added something else to his legacy. Triple H would then go on to feud with the Rock for several Pay Per Views, including the Iron Man match. Triple H would then feud with Jericho, which led to the Last Man Standing match and the almost title change at RAW, Kurt Angle, which had them feuding over Stephanie, and some matches with Chris Benoit. Steve Austin would later come back to the WWF, and evil Triple H revealed himself to be the man behind the hit and run at Survivor Series 1999.
That set up the incredible feud and the awesome match at No Way Out 2000, where Triple H beat the Texas Rattlesnake in a best 2 out of 3 falls match. Triple H would then feud with the Undertaker, where the Game lost to the Dead Man Walking. Triple H's alliance with Austin was actually a last minute decision. You see, he should have done an angle with Shawn Michaels after Wrestlemania, where he would possibly tag with HBK and go after Undertaker/Kane or something like that. However, Shawn Michaels was not ready to perform that night, and plans for Wrestlemania and future storylines were trashed. The WWF then decided to pair Triple H with Steve Austin, since Austin needed more help as a heel. During this time, Triple H would win the IC title from Jericho, lose it to Jeff Hardy, and then win it back soon after. In April of 2001 the two man power tripTriple H and Austin dethroned Kane and The Undertaker of the tag team titles but on May 21 Triple H rushed in the ring to aid Austin aginst Y2J Hunter tore his quad but he went on to fish the match even thought they lost. The next day he was oprated on and went throught eight months of hellacious rehab, to set up for his Jan. 7, 2002,return on RAW. Triple H was back and Steph and him were fighting alot and she wanted to prove that there was still love there so the planed to renew there vows A week later. When it was time for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon-Helmsly to renew their vows. Earlier in the night the two consulting with a doctor who told them the baby was doing fine. Later on Triple H got a phone call from Linda McMahon who said she had sent him a video and that he should watch it. Triple H threw it in the VCR as he watched Linda told him that the doctor was an actor and Stephanie had been lying to him. Meanwhile, Stephanie was getting all ready and talking to the singers and in came Vince who told everyone to leave. Vince said he would never forget that she had tried to put him out of business but she was a McMahon so he would forgive her. It was time and Triple H went to the ring that had been made into an alter. Vince and Stephanie then went down as the crowd chanted "slut." The preacher started in as the crowd chanted "what" after every line. Singers came out and did their cheesy thing as Stephanie read her vows she had written. Triple H, with a big smirk on his face, went next and said that he wanted to tell her he was overwhelmed and wanted her to know right then and there how he felt about her from the beginning to at that moment. He said he saw her in a different light and wanted to say in front of the world that she was truly a no good lying bitch. A stunned Vince looked on, as The Game asked how she could play with his emotions. He knew he had done stupid things but nothing like that. He went on say she wouldn’t have to worry about them anymore as their marriage was over. Vince then shoved Triple H as he took out Vince and ransacked the alter. Stephanie threw a tantrum all up in his face as he shoved her to the ground. Vince then went after Triple H again only to receive a pedigree for his troubles. The Game then walked off as Stephanie lay in the ring screaming. The next week on Raw Chris Jericho came out and said he only called her names to get laughes and he was sorry and the team up aginst Triple H at Wrestle Maina then on March 25, 2002, Stephanie McMahon had her first WWF Championship match! It was Stephanie vs. Jericho vs. Triple H for the Undisputed World Wrestling Federation Championship.

Stephanie is just getting up from the pin and Triple H grabs her as she tries to climb out of the ring. Triple H goes for the Pedigree on Stephanie again but Jericho pulls Stephanie out of the ring and Stephanie is thanking him. Triple H then kicks Jericho in the back and bumps into Stephanie. Triple H takes Stephanie and throws her into the ring. He backs her into the corner. Triple H took Stephanie by the hair but Jericho saved her.
