World Wrestling Entertainment (2010 - present)
NXT (2010)
After competing in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), the developmental territory of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Bryan Danielson joined WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan. Bryan was introduced into WWE as one of the eight Rookies for WWE's new reality show NXT, with the motive to introduce a new WWE wrestler. The Miz was assigned as Bryan's Pro in NXT Season One.

The following night, on February 23 edition of NXT, Bryan competed in his first WWE match, losing to Chris Jericho.

Bryan's WWE Pro The Miz developed a hatred against Bryan because Bryan lost his first match.

Biography:

Triple H is undoubtedly one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). No matter whether he used dirty tricks and sidekicks to reach to the top of the sports-entertainment or he did his own work, Triple H has gotten involved in some of the best matches and some of the memorable and lengthy rivalries of WWE history. He is not just a good wrestler but also an intelligent guy, who has not just used his intelligence to become a 13-time world champion but also to become the son-in-law of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon by marrying Vince's daughter Stephanie McMahon.

Hunter Hearst Helmsley was abbreviated to Triple H in 1997 by his D-Generation X leader Shawn Michaels. He was initially the sidekick of The Heartbreak Kid but went on to usurp the leadership of DX and transform it into DX Army, which became one of the main reasons of WWE's success during the Attitude Era. Triple H set out on his own to wrestle in main event matches against company's top competitors and ruled over the company with the help of McMahon Family. He formed his own group Evolution with Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista. The group was a combination of past (Flair), present (Triple H) and future (Orton and Batista). Triple H destroys his enemies with his trusty sledgehammer and makes an unique entrance to the ring by drinking water from his bottle and then spitting it up in the air.

World Wrestling Federation / Entertainment (1997 - present)
In October 1997, Shawn Michaels renamed his ally Hunter Hearst Helmsley to Triple H to transform him from the rich snob to a cooler wrestler wearing T-shirts and adopting a new extreme attitude. On October 6 edition of Raw is War, Triple H competed in his first match under the new ring name, defeating rival faction Hart Foundation's leader Bret Hart by count-out after Shawn Michaels delivered a Sweet Chin Music to Hart, thus getting an upset victory against Hart. Michaels, Triple H, Rick Rude and Chyna called their group D-Generation X after Hart made fun of them and called them degenerates.

After Shawn Michaels controversially won the WWF Championship at Survivor Series in the Montreal Screwjob incident, DX began feuding with the WWF Commissioner Sgt. Slaughter. At D-Generation X: In Your House, Triple H made his pay-per-view debut in a Boot Camp match against Slaughter. Triple H defeated Slaughter after Triple H's bodyguard Chyna delivered a Low Blow to Slaughter. Later that night, Triple H and Chyna attacked Ken Shamrock and helped Shawn Michaels in retaining the WWF Championship by getting him disqualified.

On December 22 (taped December 11) edition of Raw is War, Triple H won his first championship by defeating Shawn Michaels to win the WWF European Championship after Slaughter ordered them to wrestle for the championship and Michaels laid down for Triple H to pin him for the championship. After winning the championship, Triple H suffered an injury and began walking on crutches. Entering 1998, Triple H and Chyna eliminated the remaining Hart Foundation member Owen Hart from the 1998 Royal Rumble match at Royal Rumble. Triple H was scheduled to participate in the match but he could not participate due to injury and was replaced by Honky Tonk Man.

On January 26 (taped January 20) edition of Raw is War, Triple H refused to defend the WWF European Championship against Owen Hart, resulting in The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust competing in the match and being dressed as Triple H. Hart won the championship. Triple H's reign ended at 40 days. At No Way Out in Texas: In Your House, Triple H, Savio Vega and New Age Outlaws competed against Owen Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie in an eight-man tag team match in a losing effort. On March 17 (taped March 16) edition of Raw is War, Triple H defeated Owen Hart to win his second WWF European Championship after Chyna attacked Hart's injured ankle with a baseball bat, prompting referee to stop the match. At WrestleMania XIV, Triple H made his WrestleMania debut as he successfully defended the championship against Hart.

Shawn Michaels was forced to retire after losing the WWF Championship at WrestleMania XIV because of suffering a back injury, leading to Triple H berating Michaels and usurping the leadership of D-Generation X. He added X-Pac and New Age Outlaws to the group. At Mayhem in Manchester, Triple H received his first opportunity for the WWF Championship as he unsuccessfully challenged Stone Cold Steve Austin for the championship. Triple H defeated Owen Hart to retain the WWF European Championship at Unforgiven: In Your House after X-Pac attacked Hart with a fire extinguisher.
