Meh. Still a better career than Triple H has had.
LOL, that's what I meant when I said "I could say more" on this topic. I think that what irritates me about Triple H is his smugness. Like, I saw a comment he made about how guys (Scott) are bothered because he's somewhere they want to be, and he throws in his little, smug, knowing, tone about their career prospects. I've seen him do it a few times, and he did the same about Scott recently.
It's just irritating, because he says it like those guys are shit, and like he got to where he was because he's just so damn good (and superior, presumably).
Someone said this in one of the Triple H political threads, and it is so damn on the money:
Would he have been a main eventer had he not married Steph ?, Yes but he would've been phased out years ago.
Would he have been a main eventer had he not been a member of the Kliq ?. Absolutely not. He'd now be a fat balding guy in his forties working Indy shows in the North east.
I'd find him tolerable, if it weren't for the smugness. It's like, you don't have the right to be so smug. Because really, without your connections, you'd be in the same position someone like Steiner is in, and probably would have been there years before him.
And I honestly feel like someone like Scott has a ton more to offer.
I know Scott took shots publicly first, but it's an attitude from Triple H that I always sense. And the fact that someone like him is now in a position where others have to kiss his ring...it's just kind of bullshit.
Maybe it's moreso the fans that bother me. Like they talk shit about anyone who says anything, and they always say that the wrestlers are just bitter (my favorite) and jealous. Maybe they are? Wouldn't you be, if you witnessed a lot of bullshit going on, and you KNOW that you're better and more sincere than this guy?
I like this post:
Yep, that's right, Scott Steiner is bitter and jealous and it has nothing to do with the fact that he went from a former WCW World Champ and main event mainstay in WCW to being Triple H's jobber in WWE. Oh, and that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with backstage politics, the fact is that fans just don't like Steiner and he can't make it in the, "big time." Oh, and nevermind the fact that Steiner has 6 years in the business on Triple H, and all the numerous Wrestling Observer awards he's gotten such as best worked match, best move, tag team of the year, and five-star match, he can't work and he's completely inferior to Triple H. Everyone wonders why the business is falling apart, THIS is why the business is falling apart. Instead of actually trying to take an objective approach to the whole thing and judge wrestlers based on certain set aspects of their ring performance all we get is a bunch of fanboys who just go around spouting whatever tired line Vince and his lackeys throw out there in order to save face. You don't have to like Scott Steiner, and everything he says may not be entirely true, but you're just blind if you can't realize that he had a promising period in his career lined up in WCW that basically got thrown out the window by Triple H's backstage politics. Whether those politics included, "banging the boss' daughter," is irrevelant, Triple H has a well documented history of playing the politics game to get ahead, even if that means stepping over other people who deserve their spot.
And I don't see any steroid-related posts yet, but before anyone starts going on that rant, you may want to remember that Triple H has had his own history with the juice.
Ok sorry to get off topic, and sorry if I offended any Triple H fans, but it's something I've been thinking about for awhile, and the convo sort of came up.
Anyway, it's just sad to see guys who have a real passion and knowledge for the business just pushed aside. I didn't even watch TNA regularly when Steiner was going on his Twitter rants about it, but you can just tell that every word he was saying was true. And they should thank him for the free promo, because it actually made me interested in seeing what shenanigans were going on over there, lol.
Anyway, this thread has been a gold mine for good match recommendations, so thank you all for that!
