This is where the champions for the separate brands were born and it gave RAW a world title. More importantly they accomplished what they wanted to as it gave Triple H massive heat from the fans for not earning the belt. He went on to dominate RAW for the next two years as champ only dropping the belt briefly to HBK and Goldberg before getting it back pretty fast both times. He did drop the belt to Benoit in 2004 and then Batista in 2005, so Triple H did make a few stars during his run but he usually dominated and buried most guys.
Seriously, how do you not know this?
