Triple H won twenty-four titles in the WWE and is a fourteen-time world champion, having won the WWF / E Championship nine times and the World Heavyweight Championship five times. He was the first World Heavyweight Champion, having received the title in September 2002, he won the King of the Ring (1997), the Royal Rumble (2002 and 2016) and was the second Grand Slam Championship winner.
Outside of wrestling, he has made numerous film and television appearances. Outside of wrestling, Triple H has been a figure of substantial media attention due to his marriage to Stephanie McMahon, daughter of Vince and Linda McMahon, who are majority owners of WWE.
In 2019, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the D-Generation X stable. In a recent interview with CBS Sports, The Game spoke about why it’s been hard for The Undertaker to retire.

“Obviously, everybody changes as performers and who you are.
When I first came in here and faced him for the first time in 1995, it was just about earning his respect and trust as a performer. Taker is one of those guys who gives everybody respect, but you don’t just get it, you have to earn it.
That’s in-ring and everything else. I approached that time very differently. Over the course of our careers, we worked a lot. At that point in time, you just didn’t think about it. It was a night off," said The Game.
"If I was wrestling Taker — and I’d like to think he thought the same with me — it was a night off. You don’t have to think about it — he’s going to do his part, you don’t have to think for him.
You just go in there and it’s magic and fun. You’re laughing and having a good time because you’re in there with a guy that’s incredibly gifted in the ring but you also get along with and think the same as.
It couldn’t be any easier. But, when you fast forward toward the end of your careers and he’s in the place he’s in with everything you’re seeing in ‘The Last Ride,’ with self-doubt and the physical shape that he was in and trying to overcome all that, and then you’re having your own issues with all of that," Triple H concluded.
