Triple H

When did the name change from Hunter Hearst helmsley to Triple H? Did no one think it didn't sound good at the time? People say how lame WWE are at coming up with names these days, but to me Triple H sounds corny. It only fits now because everyone is so used to it.

Re: Triple H

The best I can remember, it changed around the time DX formed. I'm sure I'm wrong and somebody will be along to correct me shortly.

Re: Triple H

Since the beginning.

No, really. His titantron showed the letters HHH since the beginning. It was his nickname. They didn't choose 3 names that start with H just because.

During late 1997, Shawn started calling him that way and it stuck.

Re: Triple H

I prefer when his name is written as HHH more than Triple H

Re: Triple H

Yeah, I think the change was made around the time DX was formed in the mid 90's. I prefer his name as Triple H anyway over Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

Re: Triple H

Mr. Perfect used to refer to him as Triple H back when he used to do commentary with Vince McMahon in 1996, but everyone else referred to him either as Hunter, Helmsley or Hunter Hearst Helmsley. It wasn't until DX was fully established that he officially took the moniker Triple H because his snob gimmick had pretty much evaporated.

Re: Triple H

You're right about the DX thing.

Shawn Michaels started referring to him as "Triple H" first, and it just stuck, mainly because Trips wanted to get as far away from the Helmsley character as possible and more relegated into his real life personality. "Triple H" was slang that stuck basically





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Triple H

Bret Hart still calls him Hunter.

Which I'm sorry but I find incredibly odd.
