The next night on Raw, Triple H confronted McMahon, confused at what happened the night before. Especially since McMahon sent Triple H to take out Austin, leading to a heated rivalry that culminated in a Three Stages of Hell match at No Way Out.
During the main event between The Rock and Steve Austin, Triple H charged down to the ring showing a great deal of frustration as a result of unsettled differences between himself, McMahon, and Austin. He approaches the ring with a sledgehammer, and gets face to face with Austin. The tension is at a fever pitch, and Triple H is ready to find answers for himself in the form of violence.
However, something different takes place. Triple H hits The Rock with the sledgehammer, pedigrees him, and celebrates with Austin. This forms the collective unit known as the Two-Man Power Trip.
Although the alliance was short-lived, they achieved more than what many other tag teams wish for their entire career. In a sheer stroke of power, Austin and Triple H monopolized all the major titles. Austin was WWE Champion, Triple H was Intercontinental Champion, and they became tag team champions by defeating the Brothers of Destruction at Backlash 2001.
Classic build. Classic era.
