"As I stated on my "That Damn Good" DVD review...backstage politics aside, Triple H is one of the best performers in the industry today. He's for the in-ring presence of a modern day Harley Race with the charisma & diversity of Ric Flair. It's been a long time (over 5 years) since they dropped a DVD SOLEY on The Game & it will take the same format that Austin's & Hogan's latest releases are where they'll have his matches with comments in between on various incidents such as getting started in the business, time in WCW, Chyna, the curtain call, King Of The Ring including a funny story about the "crown" itself, the evolution (no pun intended) of his character, his quad injury, Shawn's return, Ric Flair, Batista, Edge & John Cena amongst other things.
Matches include: vs. John Crystal - This was his RAW debut & nothing special past that.
RAW May 1995
vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Marc Mero - Triple H's first title reign began here as the whole plan involving the "mole" Mr. Perfect came to play as Perfect (who had problems with HHH and befriended Mero) turned on Mero to help HHH win the championship.
RAW Oct. 1996
King of the Ring Final Match vs. Mankind - This was the match that put him on the map & started his elevation into becoming who we know today. This was the most aggressive you've seen Triple H up to that time as he did things to Foley you haven't seen before like the pedigree through the announce table, Chyna breaking the scepter over his back, and Triple H not stopping the attack after he won the match.
King Of The Ring 1997
WWE European Championship Match vs. Owen Hart - The stipulation here was that Chyna was going to be handcuffed to Commissioner Sgt. Slaughter at ringside during the match. Triple H & Owen Hart worked a real good match here with the Chyna factor not really playing a fact until the end.
vs. WWE Champion Mankind - Mankind was inserted into the Austin/Triple H SummerSlam match & walked away the champion. This was the night after when Triple H captured his first of many World Championships.
RAW Aug. 1999
No Holds Barred WWE Championship Match vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin - This match always gets heavily overshadowed by their later encounters as they went hard in the ring & just had an out of control brawl out the ring include Austin "lowering the boom" on HHH. The ending involving The Rock doesn't take away from the match itself & was supposed to set up the Survivor Series match that wasn't meant to be due to Austin's injury.
No Mercy 1999
Career vs. WWE Title Hell in a Cell Match vs. Cactus Jack - Mick Foley's original retirement match as it was career vs. title here. After their classic Rumble street fight, this match didn't top it but did its job in letting Foley end his career with a bang. The story was about Foley promising to come off the cage onto Triple H so he had the cage locked so they couldn't get out but eventually found a way out after he missed hitting Triple H with the steel steps. The ending involving the flaming "Barbie" & Cactus on top the cell was something.
No Way Out 2000
30- Man Royal Rumble Match - They show everything after Triple H entered since he wasn't involved in the entire Rumble unlike how it was on Flair & HBK's DVD sets. Hunter's time in the Rumble involved a confrontation with Steve Austin, a comedic moment involving The Hurricane, the return of Mr. Perfect, and the final moments between him & Kurt Angle.
Royal Rumble 2002
3 Stages Of Hell Match vs. World Heavyweight Champion Shawn Michaels - The story here was will we see the "humble" Shawn Michaels or "Heartbreak Kid?" Just a side note but watch before the match gets started as Ric Flair kept getting into it with the referee to the point where he gets shoved on his ass...it's funny. The street fight was brutal as they didn't do a lot of weapons spots but just instead beat the hell out of each other & occasionally use weapons such as a flaming barbed wire board. The cage match was around 10 mins. with the only memorable spot being HBK's dive onto Triple H though a table. The ladder match wasn't the caliber of HBK's previous ladder matches but it was still good considering the circumstances with the finish of HBK falling off the ladder though loads of tables being a highlight to the point where WWE continued to use that footage in their "Don't try this at home" advertisement before any WWE home video.
Hell In The Cell vs. World Heavyweight Champion Batista - Their third, last, and best encounter. Many hardcore weapons (barbed wire chairs for example) were used. Triple H bleeds buckets once again as Batista wins with a spinebuster on top of the ring steps.
Last Man Standing Match vs. Ric Flair - Triple H brought out the best in Flair (at this day & age) in their feud. Triple H was ruthless while Flair wasn't giving up until HHH had to use the sledgehammer to put Flair down. I enjoyed their cage match better than this but I think they put this one on here since Triple H won the match here.
Survivor Series 2005
vs. WWE Champions John Cena vs. vs. Edge - The match was good with Triple H being heavily busted open & all three men working well together.
Hog Pen Match vs. Henry Godwinn - I guess Triple H can laugh at himself because his was a "wrestlecrap" match that is really nothing special past the "blueblood" Hunter being tossed into a muddy pigpen complete with hogs.
In Your House Dec. 1995
1st Professional Match as Terra Ryzing vs. Flying Tony Roy - The match itself was nothing special but pretty funny to see the babyfaced Triple H with the mullet-like hairstyle back then. The commentary with Jim Ross & Triple H is the real highlight here.
Burlington, VT Jan. 1992
In the end, this collection is giving me exactly what I want from a DVD set. None of these matches are on other DVD sets (besides the PPV anthologies), they brought back the alternative commentary, highlight special moments in his career, and the match quality is there. The only thing I can think of that is missing is a match with The Rock since that was one of the biggest feuds from the attitude era. In the end, I recommend."

"This two-disc DVD set is a chronicle of one of the most dominant and controversial Superstars in the WWE, and it's a good one. It details his beginnings in independent organizations, then his brief stint in World Championship Wrestling, where he wrestled as Terra Ryzing and Jean-Paul Levesque, respectively. Then, he is shown in his early days in WWE as Hunter Hearst Helmsley, the American Blueblood, wrestling some local talent in different towns. It chronicles his first singles title win, the Intercontinental Championship, winning it from Marc Mero in 1996. He then is shown winning King of The Ring 1997 from Mankind (Mick Foley) with Chyna at his side. He then is seen against Owen Hart for his European Title at Wrestlemania 14. He also faces Mankind (Mick Foley) again a couple of times, one match which results in him winning his first of 12 World Titles. He is seen in matches against Shawn Michaels, Batista, John Cena, Edge, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Nature Boy Ric Flair and Henry O. Godwinn, most of which he wins and wins the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship. There is a bit about his days in Degeneration-X and Evolution, but not a great deal. More about D-X can be found a separate DVD set. He is also seen as Number 22 entrant into the 2002 Royal Rumble, which he wins. There is also footage shown of his first match, against Flying Tony Roy, which is part of the rather skimpy extras on this set. I would give this set about a 4 1/2 out of five stars for the terrific compendium of his career, but I would've liked to see more extras. Whether you call him "The Game," The Cerebral Assassin" or "The King of Kings," this is one DVD set you must own."

"Triple H is without a shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest stars the WWE has ever had. OK, so he is now the bosses son-in-law, but that is beside the point. He gives his all 110% to the business and never disappoints. This is a wonderful collection of his matches. Personally i would to prefer to see more commentary from this great man, but I am happy enough with what is included here.
Many criticise him, mostly those who are jealous of him I suspect. Bill Goldberg and Dave Batista amongst others have nothing but good to say about him.
These DVDs trace his way through his career, picking out what he no doubt considers his best matches.
Extremely good value for money, I would not missed it.
But then, he can do nothing wrong for me.
Nice One Hunter!"
