Default Did Vince Russo think of Triple H as a top guy

When he was head writer, it was clear who he thought were the top guys. The Rock, Stone Cold. Hell even Mankind and Kane were probably higher on his list than Triple H. Triple H's big career breakthrough generally started after Russo left the company. And you have to wonder if Triple H's career would be different had Russo never left the WWF.

I don't think anyone did besides Vince & Steph. Too take a quote from Jim Cornete HHH is the guy who's booked with the guy who draws money. Never believed it to be true myself until recent memory when he went over guys like Punk & Brock, He had no business going over those guy's. Non the less he was good but never GOAT material.

Hard to say when Triple H was dating the bosses daughter

I'd have to agree with this. A lot of people have called Triple H one of the greatest ever but he was NEVER the top guy in the company. Vince Russo saw him for what I believe he truly was; a solid mid-/upper-carder. His legacy will forever be linked with his marriage to Stephanie.

Doubt it. Russo was a lot of things but at least he knew Austin and Rocky were the baskets to put eggs in.

And before that his image was linked to his association with the Kliq and being HBK's buddy.

The notion that some have to call Triple H one of the greats is just insanely laughable to me. The man has always been a caboose, latching himself on to more powerful people. It's hard to respect that.

you can say HHH was "the guy" in 02-04 but in my eyes, Lesnar was a bigger star than him even at that time.

The show definitely seemed to center around him more than anyone else at that time, which was rare since he was a heel.

It's also noteworthy that ratings came down quite a bit during this time. The level of nepotism with his character was criminal and I think a lot of fans knew it.

Yeah I remember times where HHH would start off the show and deliver a promo for nearly 25 mins saying the same thing over and over again.

Amen. Couldn't have said it better. He was a kiss ass from day one. Back in the kliq era, he was their designated driver and used to carry around their bags. Then, he cheats on his girlfriend with a woman he was attracted to only due to her wealth and power. He then goes and sleeps his way to the top of the company, purposely putting himself over countless others for no apparent reason other than to stroke his own ego and to remain relevant. That being said, he's also boring on the mic and in the ring.
