While it appears Triple H will be filling a purely off-camera role for WWE Extreme Rules 2016, The Game has had his fair share of matches at Extreme Rules (and one at its predecessor, One Night Stand). While he may be busy now working with the "new era" of NXT Superstars, a living legend like Triple H is a superstar that others can learn from. As members of the WWE Universe, his experience at the event could clue you in to what's in store for ER in 2016.

Extreme Rules may not have been Triple H's signature event, and there are plenty of WWE Superstars that have competed at the the event more times than HHH. But he's faced-off against some legendary competitors at the event, and Hunter has never been shy and wearing a crimson mask, or giving his opponent a beating that results in the same. 

What follows is the one part in a series of Extreme Rules Résumé articles in which we take a look at a current or former WWE Superstar's history at Extreme Rules (such as John Cena or The Shield) and what their past experiences might tell us about that same (or a similar) competitor at WWE Extreme Rules 2016 on May 22.

Extreme Rules record

Triple H has never won a match at WWE Extreme Rules. He arrived at the final incarnation of One Night Stand in 2008 as the WWE Champion and won his match. But when the event was replaced in 2009 by Extreme Rules, Triple H couldn't make the transition. Including his ONS victory, his record would be 1-3.

Between 2008 and 2014, Triple H was featured in matches with stipulations that included Last Man Standing, Street Fight, Steel Cage and a 6-Man Tag Team Match against arguably the greatest trio in modern pro Wrestling history. Triple H has never lost a title match at Extreme Rules, for what it's worth. He was up for the challenge when the title was on the line at One Night Stand, but didn't measure up when there was no gold at stake.

Main event matches

Perhaps making even more apparent that ER isn't really his forte is that Triple H has never headlined the event. Even when Triple H defended the WWE Championship, Edge vs. The Undertaker in a non-title TLC Match closed out the event. 

Worthy competition

Everyone that Triple H has faced at Extreme Rules will almost definitely be a first-ballot WWE Hall of Fame inductee some day.

In 2008, it was Randy Orton that failed to capture the WWE Championship from Triple H in a Last Man Standing Match. In 2010, Sheamus defeated Triple H in a Street Fight.

In 2013, Helmsley was locked in a Steel Cage with Brock Lesnar. The following year, in his most recent ER appearance, Triple H teamed up with Orton and Batista as Evolution reunited to face Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose — The Shield.

Most extreme moment(s)

Although it wasn't a flashy spot, Triple H legitimately broke Randy Orton's collarbone in their Last Man Standing Match. 

In the current PG-era, even his Steel Cage Match against Brock Lesnar didn't result in blood. Evolution's loss to The Shield, an epic moment in it's own right, wasn't an especially "extreme" match. 

Predictions for WWE Extreme Rules 2016

It's hard to make any educated guesses about this year's ER since no one on the card has reached Triple H's level in their career.

It could be argued that Roman Reigns is at a similar place as Triple H was when he defended the WWE Championship against Randy Orton.

Like Triple H, Roman Reigns has both his fans and his haters. Like Triple H, Roman Reigns comes in with the biggest prize in the game. Triple H left One Night Stand with a successful title defense, and I believe Roman Reigns will leave Extreme Rules with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. 

WWE Extreme Rules 2016 airs live on the WWE Network on May 22nd.
