Triple H became a bodybuilder at the age of 14 and became Teenage Mr. New Hampshire at the age of nineteen. He enrolled at Killer Kowalski's wrestling school in 1992.
He had a short stint in WCW as Jean-Paul Levisque. It was at this time he started using the Pedigree as his finisher. He was in a tag team with William Regal (Lord Steven Regal) but he got released when he wanted to be pushed as a singles competitor.
He debuted in WWE as Hunter Hearst Helmsley in a continuation of his WCW gimmick on the April 30th edition of WWF Wrestling Challenge. Although being heavily pushed in the first few months of his debut his career started to fall.
As of 2010 Triple H began taking a more important role behind the scenes of the WWE and became the Executive Vice President of Talent and Live Events in 2011.
