* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Boy, oh boy, does he love to do this. When he's not outright bulldozing the fourth wall with a complete disregard for maintaining {{kayfabe}}, he enjoys poking fun at smarks. At one point in 2013, after the internet was abuzz that he was going to bury [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]] during their feud, he promised, in-character, to do exactly that (even using the word "bury"). In another occasion, he also did an impression of a hypothetical WWE fan, saying that he "and his friend Mark" would stop watching, being an obvious reference to the term "SmartMark."

Even way back in 1999 when the ''WWF Attitude'' game was released he would address the player directly both during his entrance and in game. After the reunion of DX he confuses Shawn with Shane, then reacts that it's live TV so mistakes can and do happen.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Despite being one of the most controversial figures in professional wrestling, both on camera and behind the scenes, Triple H is actually friendly with the fans and is a noted [[TheMentor mentor]] to many wrestlers, including Wrestling/{{Batista}} and Randy Orton.

He's particularly well-regarded for the amount of assistance he's given to female wrestlers to help them establish their credibility over the years.

** While he may be no-nonsense authority figure, Triple H cares about his family to the point anyone thinking about harming or even smack talking about them will result in a beat-down.

*** It is worth noticing though, that Hunter has gone on record to say he's willing to bury the hatchet (at least publicily) with Punk if he's willing to come back, as he believes it would be what's (legit) best for business.

Hunter has a proven record of being good at mending fences (as the manager of the WWE Hall of Fame he managed to convince both Wrestling/BrunoSammartino and the Wrestling/UltimateWarrior to accept induction after ''years'' of refusing to have anything to do with it) so it's believable enough.

'''Triple H''', or Hunter Hearst Helmsley if you prefer (''[[TropeNamers not]]'' [[DoNotCallMePaul Paul Levesque]]), is one of Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s longest tenured performers. He is a nine-time [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-h.html WWE World Heavyweight Champion]], and has been part of some of the biggest angles and matches in the company's history. Currently, he is the [[{{Kayfabe}} on-screen]] Chief Operating Officer. In real life, he works in the backstage area of the business, as Executive Vice President of Talent Development and Relations, as well as a "Senior Advisor" to Vince [=McMahon=], and his position as Development EVP means that the developmental show Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} is a major focus of his.

As usual, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_H That Other Wiki]] has a nice, long article on his career.

** Wrestling/CMPunk. If you believe Punk's explanation of why he left WWE (see [[http://youtu.be/WP5aG1w8k4c episode 226 of Colt Cabana's podcast]]), WWE expected him to shut up, get paid, and be happy; there were plenty of workers lined up behind him who are good company men. But Punk is highly opinionated, dangerously smart, knows how to save his bucks so he's not interested in money (insofar as receiving ''equal'' pay goes), and could give a rat's ass about authority. When he singled out Triple H for mismanaging his career, he [[ItsPersonal made it personal]] and Stephanie [=McMahon=] and Triple H were '''livid''' over being crapped on in full view of the IWC.

Their hatred actually showed a bit too much when they had feuds on TV, to the point that both men would get carried away on the heat of their promos so much, they would start arguing about their real life problems on the ring.

** Wrestling/BretHart. [[RealLifeWritesThePlot In real life as well]]. Bret might actually hate Hunter more than he did Shawn, who he has long since buried the hatchet with. It's a mutual feeling, if a little less obvious or more ignored on Hunter's end. With Bret, you can't trust him to give an unbiased view about something if it involves Hunter in any capacity.

* MontrealScrewjob: He was involved: knew about it, part of meetings on it. So Shawn's story goes, Triple H said that how Bret was acting is not right, it isn't fair, and addressed the earlier Alundra Blayze incident before Shawn said just take the belt off him, double cross and screw Bret. Later references would place Haitch as more of the instigator, saying if Bret would not do business they would do business for him.

* TheArtifact: The name "Triple H" comes from his original gimmick in the WWE where he was a snooty blueblood known as Hunter Hearst Helmsley. The name of his finishing move, the Pedigree, is likewise an artifact of his original gimmick. He's also still billed as from Greenwich, Connecticut (though he now actually lives there). Presumably, "Hunter Hearst Helmsley" is [[CanonName still his kayfabe "real name"]], since other wrestlers who are friendly with him in a given storyline will sometimes call him "Hunter", and he is even sometimes called this backstage.

Hell, when he does something the fans love (such as when he revealed the new Cruiserweight Championship belt at the climax of the Wrestling/WWECruiserweightClassic Tournament) the crowd start cheering ''"Thank you Hunter!" *clap clap clapclapclap*''
