Interestingly, Paul's first ring name was not Triple H. He had a stint with WCW, prior to WWE acquiring the promotion.

At WCW, he was known as Terra Ryzing. The reason behind his name was his character. His job was to terrorize people and this name suited this gimmick.

Notably, before he took up the name Triple H, he was called Hunter Hearst Helmsley.
