Why is Triple H called Hunter?

Current Chief Content Officer, Triple H was a wrestler before joining the official team.

Triple H is also known by the ring name "Hunter." Let us dive into the flashback of Triple H's career and learn why was he called that.

Former wrestler J. J. Dillon came up with a name for the superstar: Reginald DuPont Hemsley. However, Triple H didn't like it and made some changes to it.

During his debut in WCW in 1995, Triple H was called by stage name Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

Later, his ring friend Shawn Michaels started calling him HHH getting together the initials of his name.

With time, this turned into what we call him now: Triple H. And now Hunter is ancient history for him.
