In a recent insightful episode of "Under The Ring," wrestling legend Gerald Brisco shared his thoughts on Paul Levesque, better known as Triple H, and his unwavering commitment to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Brisco, a seasoned veteran in the industry, expressed his conviction that Levesque was always destined to be a cornerstone in WWE, not just as a celebrated wrestler but also as a key figure behind the scenes.
Levesque, who has enjoyed a storied career in the ring as Triple H, capturing multiple championships, seamlessly transitioned to a pivotal role behind the curtain. Rising through the ranks, he now holds the influential positions of Chief Content Officer (CCO) and head of WWE's creative division.
This journey, as Brisco observed, is a testament to Levesque's deep-seated dedication to the world of professional wrestling. Reflecting on his ability to gauge a wrestler's potential, Brisco recalled his first encounter with Levesque, noting an immediate impression of his dedication and respect for the sport's history.
"I saw a guy who is dedicated to the business, a guy who is dedicated to the history of this business," Brisco remarked. This initial assessment proved prophetic as Levesque's career trajectory mirrored these qualities.
Kowalski's Enduring Influence
Brisco also highlighted the influence of Levesque's mentor, the legendary Killer Kowalski, on his protégé's career.
He described Kowalski as a formidable figure in the wrestling world, known for his toughness and business acumen. These traits, Brisco suggests, were imparted to Levesque, shaping his approach to both his in-ring persona and his business dealings within WWE.
Another significant point Brisco made was about Levesque's ascent in the locker room hierarchy. Despite the initial limitations of his "Hunter Hearst Helmsley" gimmick, Levesque swiftly became a leader among his peers. This rise was indicative of his ability to evolve and adapt, both in character and professionally.
Brisco concluded by likening Levesque's career to those of WWE stalwarts like Pat Patterson and himself. While he never anticipated Levesque's marriage to Stephanie McMahon, he was certain about one thing: Levesque's lifelong commitment to WWE.
This foresight, as seen through Brisco's experienced eyes, underscores Levesque's profound impact on the industry, echoing his mentor's legacy and shaping WWE's future.
