Jean-Paul Levesque vs Alex Wright : Starrcade 1994
So this is where it all began for HHH on PPV....... And it's on Starrcade in a jobbing effort to Alex Wright. Okay, if you didn't know about this, HOW many of you would think that this would be how HHH debuted in the PPV world ? For a first ever PPV match, let alone a first ever match on a stage like Starrcade, this performance by HHH (wrestling under his almost real name) is a fantastic debut. This isn't your typical HHH match, as in this one Hunter wrestles almost like a cruiserweight trying to match the dynamic Alex Wrights aerial tactics.
For instance, how many times has HHH attempted a top rope elbow drop ala Randy Savage in the WWE ? sadly, we don't get a Pedigree attempt here either, as I think that his finisher at this point was the diamond cutter. This has a good build and an even better climax, with alot of fantastic fast paced action. Even at this early in his wrestling career, HHH could work a body part to almost near-perfection. Alex is no slouch in this one either, selling well for Levesque, making him look great until he is able to fly around a little and grab the win. If you're a fan of HHH, watch this right NOW for a look at what a pre-WWE style HHH looks like, and what he was capable of. Great stuff.
So yeah... I'm watching/reviewing every one of Hunter's PPV matches. I'm about 12 matches in and this is fun as fuck.

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
