In WWE, 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 was widely regarded as the best wrestler in North America by the turn of the millennium.
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 three-time world tag team champion (two World Tag Team Championship reigns, and one Unified WWE Tag Team Championship reign), a two-time European Champion, and a fourteen-time world champion, making him the seventh Triple Crown Champion and the second Grand Slam 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 recent interview with press during the Crown Jewel media event, The Game spoke about Floyd Mayweather’s WrestleMania appearance: “I saw Floyd do it. I saw Floyd get the buzz, and he was a fan growing up and, you know, made his persona around what we do, sort of.
But I watched him get the bug and then want to do something. Not just coming here and just, ‘Eh, I’ll go in there, do a little something.’ Come in here and do something epic. He wanted to come in here like Ronda, like Tyson Fury, I think like Cain.
Come in here and do something that the whole world remembers. Do something that, when they leave Crown Jewel, they’re like, ‘Man, that Tyson Fury thing was good. I wasn’t expecting that, but oh my god, that was good.’ Or ‘Oh my god, Cain Velasquez, holy cow. Blew my mind, I didn’t know he could do that."
