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, and over the course of his career, has been considered by many wrestling journalists and industry peers to be one of the best professional wrestlers of all-time.
Triple H has headlined several major WWE pay-per-view events, closing the company's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, seven times. Triple H has also won a number of championships in his career, being a five-time Intercontinental Champion, a two-time world tag team champion, and a fourteen-time world champion.
He is also a two-time Royal Rumble match winner, and a King of the Ring tournament winner. Later in his career, Triple H gained notability for his behind-the-scenes work at WWE, founding the developmental branch NXT, and gaining praise for his business acumen in professional wrestling.
During a long interview, HHH spoke about NXT UK: “It doesn’t matter Raw or SmackDown, it doesn’t matter NXT in the US, whenever we are coming over here, a lot of people are calling me to say, ‘Hey what if you have Drew McIntyre calling out WALTER.
You’ll see Cesaro today, Finn Balor being here before, I get it over and over again like, ‘Hey if you need me to come to the UK,’ ‘Hey I’ll love to face so and so in the UK.’ Even in the woman.
I just see it across the board that desire to compete against the best of the best. If you put on a show like they put on tonight, when you have a card that the spectacle like this was, like you said raises the bar. Puts the world on notice.
When you’re other places, you want to be a part of that. You want to step in that. You want to feel that energy from this crowd. Believe this or not, this is one of Vince McMahon’s favorite buildings. When I left, he said, ‘You’re in my favorite building ever.’ Because of the passion here, you heard them tonight, they were on fire.
They bring that energy. It’s just like a special place. A lot of magic happening in the UK, a lot of magic happening in NXT UK."
