Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Still don't think he was trying to be Flair tbh. There are obviously similarities in the gimmick and the whole Evolution thing but I honestly think it's more down to his body and injuries. Take smaller/injury free HHH from 2000 and put him in 2003 and I'm willing to bet it doesn't suck so badly. Take heavy, clumpy and injury ridden HHH from 2003 and put him in 2000 and there's not a chance that it looks half as good. If he had been on form and actually able to pull off something decent in the matches he had, it wouldn't have been so bad. But he wasn't and we ended up with awful main events instead of decent/passable ones. No matter the gimmick he had in 2003, he was still going to suck because he was simply too big for his body. Then he got injured and it all went to shit.
