Question Who was the TRUE Face of Ruthless Aggression Era?

As we all know,every era has a distinctive face(poster boy),like Hogan Era,Hart Era,Austin era etc.But one question has always nagged me,who was the true face of RA Era?

Was it Brock Lesnar,or was it HHH?


Lesnar won the championship at SS2002 by defeating the then face of WWE,The Rock,and many people loosely believe that moment to be start of the Ruthless Aggression Era.


However,soon after The Rock left,the undisputed championship was divided into two championships:WHC and WWE championship.With Brock holding the traditional WWE championship at Smackdown,while HHH was handed the WHC(erstwhile WCW championship) on RAW.


So was RA Era,HHH Era or Lesnar Era?Or this era did not had any definitive face?

THE ROCK: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.

1.Holds the record of drawing most major shows with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year.[Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000.A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]

2.Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys(again,a feat of inimitable drawing power that is unmatched by anyone in pro-wrestling history)

3.Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE.

4.Sold more merchandise than anyone active between mid 1999-2001.

Re: Who was the TRUE Face of Ruthless Aggression Era?

-HHH was the top guy during Ruthless Aggression Era.The only heel to be the top guy in WWE's history.HHH was the biggest star after Austin/Rock left and served as a transitional 'face' of the company till they could have another top guy.

-I don't think Vince himself thought of Lesnar as the face of the Ruthless Aggression Era.If Lesnar never left,I think we would have got HHH vs Lesnar at Wrestlemania with HHH putting over Lesnar as the face of the WWE.They tried to do with Batista but unfortunately it didn't work out.It finally worked out when HHH tapped out to John Cena,sealing his spot as the top guy

-Brock Lesnar wasn't even the biggest star on SD throughout his tenure.At times,Kurt Angle was a bigger star than him.Brock Lesnar was pushed way too much and that's why people think he was the top guy at that time.But I think Vince was grooming him to be the next big star rather than Brock being the 'guy' itself.

Re: Who was the TRUE Face of Ruthless Aggression Era?

I wouldn't say there was just one TOP guy during that era but if I had to say one I would have to give it to Lesnar, While HHH was dominating Raw week in week out I feel Lesnar was the guy who got the most hype throughout 2002 and 2003. Guy was getting crazy ass pushes left right and centre and would have no doubt dominated for years to come had he not decided to leave in 04.

Re: Who was the TRUE Face of Ruthless Aggression Era?

I missed the whole of the Ruthless Aggression ERa having stopped watching WWE around 2003, and came back into WWE around 2008. But having went back and looked through alot of the matches since around that time I see alot of Brock Lesner, Triple H and Kurt Angle.

Was the Ruthless Agression Era a heel Era? because I am familiar with these guys as big heels? Someone help me out here :P

While I agree with that I still think HHH had the belt more at the WWE title changed hands a lot on Smackdown.
