Since 2011, he has curtailed his in-ring appearances as he has taken on a greater behind-the-scenes role within WWE.Over the course of his career, Levesque has held a total of 25 championships including nine reigns as WWF/WWE Champion and five as WWE's World Heavyweight Champion.Eventually, after numerous attempts, Levesque persuaded Arcidi to introduce him to former wrestler Killer Kowalski, who ran a professional wrestling school in Malden, Massachusetts.In early 1992, Levesque began to train as a professional wrestler at Killer Kowalski's school in Malden, Massachusetts.During this period, his ring name was shortened to simply Triple H, even though he would still be referred for a while as Helmsley from time to time and Hunter for the rest of his career.Even after the DX versus Hart Foundation storyline ended, he continued to feud with the sole remaining Hart family member Owen over the European Championship.This stable became known for pushing the envelope, as Michaels and Helmsley made risqué promos—using the catchphrase "Suck It" and a "crotch chop" hand motion—and sarcastically derided Bret Hart and Canada.By that point, Helmsley had fully dropped the "blueblood snob" gimmick, appearing in T-shirts and leather jackets.
When he attempted to perform the Pedigree, Garner mistook the maneuver for a double underhook suplex and tried to jump up with the move, causing him to land squarely on top of his head and suffer neck damage.
During this time, he adopted an entrance gimmick of asking the crowd "Are you ready? ", followed by a parody of rival promotion WCW's ring announcer Michael Buffer's famous catch-phrase, "Let's get ready to rumble", substituting the word "rumble" with the DX slogan, "suck it".
Also during this time, Triple H began a feud with the leader of the Nation of Domination and rising WWF villain, The Rock.
Levesque, under the ring name Terra Ryzing, began his professional wrestling career in the International Wrestling Federation (IWF) in 1992.
In 1994, he joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where he was soon repackaged as a French-Canadian aristocrat named Jean-Paul Lévesque.
