Look backing on Triple H's title runs in 1999.
I remember years back there was a thread on here saying that HHH "wasn't ready" for the belt when he won it in 1999. I don't really think this is true, for the first 2 weeks HHH had the belt he did seem like a credible champion, practically because all of the main eventers put him over every Raw/Smackdown. HHH's reign went downhill when Austin came back, after the first 2 weeks of HHH being put over by all of the main eventers, Austin returned and practically got the upperhand on HHH nearly every week up until Survivor Series that year, including the infamous Smackdown where HHH lost the belt to Vince because of Austin. I honestly think Austin taking time off was the best thing to happen to HHH, because as long as Austin was there it would've been hard for HHH to actually have a good run with the belt.
