Triple H talks to Chris Jericho about his start in WCW, the Klig and the name “Triple H”.
Shawn started calling me Triple H day one, I think it was an Arn thing. He was like what’s your gimmick again? Hunter Hearst Helmsley, holy crap Triple H and he just walked off. With him it was always Triple H. When we switched from out of the gimmicks to be a bit more real, Vince asked me at the time, do you just want to use your real name? I was like not really, I’ve got some time with this Hunter Hearst Helmsley thing like the Hunter and all that stuff.
