Re: Your honest thoughts on Triple H?
As a wrestler, one of the best heels of his generation, if not the best. His heel run from 99-2001 was spectacular. Dude was dastardly. Not the best worker, in the ring or the mic, but he did get the job done, and he has his share of moments of greatness in that regard. What he brought to the table, especially when initially became a main eventer, was raw emotion. It was his ambition to be the best that allowed to display that anger and energy on screen. Really felt authentic. His run from 2002-2005 did feel stale after a point. Some say he buried talent, which I agree to an extent. However he also made stars out of Batista, Benoit and Cena in their respective WM matches. Although he was never fotc, he was a key cog in the Attitude era, and I wholeheartedly disagree with OP that he wasnt DX. Blasphemy. HHH is the only wrestler to ever be apart of every incarnation of DX. My only gripe towards HHH is NOC 2011, when he didnt put over the hottest wrestler in the planet in CM Punk. For someone who is always boasting about knowing whats best for business, that was a horrid business decision. As for NXT, he seems to be more in touch with audience than VInny Mac, and only time will tell if his fruits of NXT will bear any significant results in the long run. So far so good.
