Paul Michael Levesque (born July 27, 1969) is an American professional wrestler, better known by the ring name, Triple H, an abbreviation of his former monicker, Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Triple H currently wrestles on the RAW brand of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where, with Shawn Michaels, he is one half of D-Generation X.
Triple H was trained to wrestle by Killer Kowalski. He teamed with fellow Kowalski trainee, Perry Saturn. In 1993, he joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW), wrestling as a heel under the ring name Terra Ryzin. Later, Levesque created the persona Jean-Paul Lévesque, a hastily constructed persona in reference to his surname's French origins, and was asked to speak with a French accent as he could not speak French. Under this persona, Levesque also briefly teamed with Lord Steven Regal (This partnership would be brought up by Regal in 2004 after Regal convinced Eugene to cost Triple H an Ironman Match against Chris Benoit). He left in 1995 for the World Wrestling Federation.

Another championship opportunity came about for Triple H in the Road to WrestleMania Tournament, in which he won, thus granting him a number one contendership for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 22.
At WrestleMania 22, Triple H and John Cena fought in the main event for the WWE Championship, where Triple H lost via submission. The next month at Backlash 2006, Triple H was involved in another WWE Championship match, fighting Edge and John Cena in a Triple Threat match, where he lost again. In an act of frustration, a bloodied Triple H used his sledgehammer to attack both Edge and John Cena and then performed a number of DX crotch chops, much to the delight of the fans. Triple H would unsuccessfully attempt to win the WWE title from Cena on numerous occasions, and blaming his shortcomings on Vince McMahon, eventually leading to a feud between the McMahons and Triple H.
Shawn Michaels returned on the June 12, 2006 edition of RAW and soon reunited with Triple H to reform their previous wrestling stable, D-Generation X. DX defeated the Spirit Squad at Vengeance 2006 in a 5-on-2 handicap match. DX continued their feud with Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon and the Spirit Squad for several weeks. They then defeated the Spirit Squad again at Saturday Night's Main Event in a 5-on-2 Elimination match. They then again defeated the McMahons at SummerSlam 2006, withstanding the attack of several handpicked WWE superstars by Vince McMahon.

At Unforgiven 2006, D-Generation X overcame the odds once again, defeating The McMahons and ECW World Heavyweight Champion The Big Show in a Hell in a Cell match (the seventh Hell in a Cell match for Triple H and the third for Shawn Michaels). DX embarassed Vince by shoving his face in Big Show's backside during the match, and DX won when Triple H broke a sledgehammer over the shoulders of Vince McMahon.
At Cyber Sunday 2006 during their feud with Rated RKO (Edge and Randy Orton), DX was defeated. The fan selected special guest referee, Eric Bischoff, allowed the illegal use of a weapon to give Rated RKO the ill-gotten win, and the plaudit of being the first tag team to defeat DX in a tag team match since their reformation in June 2006.
At The 2006 Survivor Series, DX got their revenge when their team defeated Edge and Randy Orton's team in a Classic Elimination Match with a clean sweep. This marked the first time in Survivor Series history that one team had completely swept the opposing team.
