Nice commentary from Triple H, but a limited match list
10 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Taking from the "less is more" variety of wrestling DVDs this one simply has Triple H talk about the various stages of his career and then show matches pertaining to them. It skips all his WCW work, but Triple H does discuss it.

We start off with Triple H with the slightly less catchy gimmick of rich snob Huntrer Hearst Helmsley. In these days he was working to establish himself by squashing local jobbers. Cue match from 1995 with one of said jobbers, John Crystal.

A few months later it was time for Helmsley to win his first gold in the WWE by defeating Marc Mero. Triple H grudgingly credits Mero with being the man who taught him the most in the wrestling business by being so bad that Triple H had to lift his game to new levels. Anyway he wins after interference from Mr Perfect Curt Hennig.

The DVD touches briefly on Triple H and the infamous Curtain call incident with Kevin Nash, which contrary to popular belief, had nothing to do with Helmsley being squashed by the Ultimate Warrior at Wrestlemania 12 in the only match I have ever given six stars. The match of course happened several months before the curtain call.

Next though is Humter Hearst Helmsley defeating Mankind to win the 1997 King of the Ring. The match is shown in full and is a massive improvement on the Steve Austin/ Jake Roberts final from 1996. Helmsley refused to wear the crown and recounts Vince's various attempts to get him to wear it and how he deliberately broke it every time.

In the next fight Helmsley is gone, replaced by Triple H who is now a member of the baddest stable on the planet: Degeneration X. Triple H speaks of the respect he has for his next opponent Owen Hart, shame that respect is completely missing whenever Trips talks about Owen's big brother, Bret Hart. And he should respect Owen, as "Nugget" helped Triple H to a scorcher at Wrestlemania 14 as Trips retained the European Title.

Next it's time for "The Game" to win the WWE Title from Mankind in August 1999. This is a good match. Triple H talks about things going wrong with him winning the title at Summerslam the night before and Mankind only being there to hand the belt over.

What went wrong was Austin didn't want to drop the title to Triple H, but he had no trouble losing the next match on the disc, the no holds barred WWE Title match from No Mercy 1999. And this is an absolutely tremendous match. A great example of an attitude era main event, with Triple H winning thanks to outside interference.

Next up is another classic match between Triple H and Foley. THis is the Hell in a Cell retirement match from No Way out 2000. Again this is innovative and brutal and is every bit as remarkable now as it was when it first happened.

The first disc ends with Triple H entering the 2002 Royal Rumble at 22 and winning.

The second disc starts with a rather dull two out of three falls match between Triple H and Shawn Micheals from Armageddon 2002.

But things pick up fast as Triple H looks back at one of his best rivalries, with Batista in 2005, and talks about the importance of losing to him at three PPVs in a row. The third loss, in a Hell in a Cell match, is shown here and it is both brutal and entertaining. Gret work from both guys.

Next Triple H talks about is friendship with Ric Flair and the value of having Flair as a mentor and then we are shown a bloody and brutal Last Man Standing match the two had at Survivor Series 2005.

The disc ends with Triple H telling us all that JOhn Cena was one of the worst wrestlers he'd ever seen, but has improved since whenever they had that conversation. We are then shown a match where Cena had to do almost nothing as he retained the title in a triple threat match over Triple H and Edge. This is another extremely entertaining math with a lot of blood, dominated by Triple H's crazy heel and Edge's coward act, but won by John Cena. This was the best possible use of Cena at that stage in his career.

There are two bonus matches included. Triple H's first ever professional match as Terra Rayzing taking on Flying Tony Roy in 1992 and and the infamous pig slop match between Helmsley and Henry O Godwinn In Your House December 1995.

This is an entertaining DVD with a solid collection of matches and well worth a look.
