Citing disciplinary reasons, World Wrestling Federation officials kept Triple H in relative obscurity for more than one year before he broke free and captured the 1997 King of the Ring. A few months prior to his royal coronation, Hunter enlisted the services of Chyna and his career began to take an upward swing. After reaching a great deal of success throughout the subsequent months, Hunter aligned himself with close friend Shawn Michaels to form D-Generation X and change the face of wrestling forever.
After Shawn lost the Federation Title to Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania XIV, Triple H truly asserted himself as one of the premier superstars in the entire sport by taking over as leader of the faction. Now with Chyna, X-Pac, and the New Age Outlaws under his direction, this cunning superstar is responsible for leading the most powerful and influential group in wrestling. There is no doubt that when all is said and done, Triple H will be responsible for elevating this sport to heights never believed attainable.
Like all stables, at one point they break up and that's what happened with DX. On August 23rd, 1999, HHH defeated Mankind to win his first WWF world Title. In Septmeber, HHH lost the belt to Vince McMahon because of outside interferance from Steve Austin. The following week, HHH beat The Rock, Kane, Mankind, The Britsh Bulldog, and The Big Show in a "six pack challenge" match to finally recapture the WWF title. HHH held on to the title for a couple of months and then lost it in November. Stephanie backstabbed her father Vince and joined HHH. Vince was so upset and heart broken that he took time off. HHH and Stephanie ran the WWF and HHH booked himself in a match against the Big Show on Raw (Janury 3rd) for the WWF title. That's where HHH recpatured the WWF title for a 3rd time. HHH then lost the title to the Rock and faced the Rock in an iron man match and HHH won the belt back. HHH then had a feud with Chris Jericho.
In 2001, HHH and Austin put their differences a side and teamed up. Austin and HHH beat the Undertaker and Kane for the Tag Team titles and that made HHH the second grand slammer winner. On May 21, HHH and Austin lose the tag team titles to Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit. That night, HHH seriously injured himself. He went to have an MRI right away. His knee required surgery and now HHH is out of action for a few months rehabbing his knee.
