HIS FIRST WWE GIMMICK AND WCW GIMMICK ARE THE SAME
As I previously mentioned, Triple H’s WCW names were Terra Ryzing (bad pun, I know) and Jean Paul Levesque. He was a blue blood aristocrat who was very snobby and looked down at the other wrestlers. When he left for WWE, he was a blue blood aristocrat who often looked down at his opponents and was looked at as if he was royalty. Sound similar? That’s cause they are. This an example of WWE biting off WCW or the writers just being lazy and telling him to do the same thing he did in WCW. To give him credit, he was very good at performing that character. He ditched the character in late 1997 when D-Generation X was created and Triple H was allowed to showcase more of his real life personality on screen.
