Triple H with the WWF World title in 1999

 

With The Rock on commentary, Triple H faces Mankind on WWE Raw with the title on the line.

Mankind had won the title just one night earlier at Summer Slam in a three-way battle with Triple H and Steve Austin. 

Triple H would hold the title until September 14, 1999 (22 days), when he lost the belt to Vince McMahon.
