sit here and enjoy The Rock’s electricity
emitting from The Rock.>>And here’s Triple H now hammering away,
WWF Championship on the line, we are live.>>If you realize Michael,
The Rock is out here for one reason. To show the entire world that

  1. 2:53– Fun fact, not only was this Triple H's first WWE Championship win, it was also Lilian Garcia's debut as a ring announcer that night.

    Heck of a first day on the job, eh?

  2. Wow thanks WWE for making me feel old. That aside Triple H is one of the greats and I can't wait to see what he has in store for NXT on USA.

  3. Triple H became my favorite for a long time. I didn't know much about him before Smackdown hit public tv. I was too poor to afford cable back then so I missed all of this.

  4. Mick Foley helped bring the best out of just about every main Attitude Era Superstar. Rock, Austin, Taker and Triple H.

  5. The video is 3:16 minutes long coincidence I think not and thats the bottom line of that because stone cold steve austin said so

  6. WWE is so annoying keeping up there PG era BS reshowing a Attitude Era match and not showing the head shots… get over yourselves and lets see some of this in 2019… m,aybe you would get some of your fanbase you are clearly losing to AEW back and not half sell all your shows. NXT is the only show keeping WWE afloat because of this PG era BS…

  7. I still love to hate HHH. They guy is such a wonderful shitheel (even though he repeatedly tried to be a cool heel)

  8. My favourite of all time. The game, the King of kings, The cerebral assassain, tripleeeee hhhhhhhhh. U are that damn goooood👍👍👍👍👍

  9. It’s always bothered me when HHHs opponents raise their arms up for the pedigree before he physically hooks them himself.. it looks so tacky. And it still happens to this day.
