Sept. 22, 2002: Evolution begins

Evolution began at Unforgiven 2002 during the World Heavyweight Championship battle between Triple H and Rob Van Dam. With the contest at a virtual stalemate, then-champion Triple H took advantage of the official being knocked down and grabbed a sledgehammer. Before The Game could hit his opponent, however, RVD took down the champion with a spinning heel kick, narrowly avoiding a crushing blow from The King of Kings’ weapon of choice.

As both competitors struggled to their feet, Ric Flair entered the ring and grabbed the sledgehammer. The Nature Boy stalked Triple H with the weapon in hand, waiting for The Game to stand. But as The Cerebral Assassin begged for mercy, The Dirtiest Player in the Game turned around and instead struck RVD with the sledgehammer, allowing Triple H to hit the Pedigree and secure the victory. ]

Following this alliance being forged, Flair began to serve as The Game’s manager and adviser.
