Why do fans hate HHH for not being a draw?

Every couple of months I see posts about HHH not being a legitimate draw, not on same level as Austin/Rock, he's the guy who works with the guy, etc. Even if that's all true, why do people care? 99% of the roster (past and present) are not on the same level as Austin/Rock. There are maybe 4/5 FOTC I can think of: Hogan, Austin, Rock, Cena and Reigns(?) and the last two got mixed reactions. I don't understand why WWE fans constantly hold HHH to a high standard and make fun of him for not reaching that standard. The current roster is not even close to HHH level (and far far far below Hogan/SCSA/Rock) in terms of drawing and starpower and no one gives them crap for it. I don't see anyone saying "Lol Rollins not a draw like Austin" or "Bray not on same level as Rock."

The problem with him is that he probably knows that he was never THE guy or THE draw, but he likes to present himself like he was anyway, all the time.

Maybe my thread played a part in this because it's the most recent one although it was more of me enquiring about the case of him thinking he's on their general level because of this hate he gets because he apparently considers himself bigger than he really is.

But as to him being a draw he's not the primary reason people purchase a ticket to shows but he's most definitely one of the star attractions no argument there.

Why does this place endlessly obsess over HHH?

Christ. Let it go. He didn’t murder anyone’s family here, no matter how much some people act like he did.

How does he present himself as a draw? And everyone acts like they are hot shit especially if they main event. Rollins acts cocky, Reigns acts cocky, Becky does, etc. Doesn't mean they all think they are top drawing superstars.

Well every single soul that had the chance of being the guy or amongst the top guys got berated for them not being the Rock and SCSA. Why exclude anyone?

Because HHH didn't wrestle in ROH or similar indie feds, isn't a favourite of Meltzer, and isn't 5ft 8 and 190lbs. Hence, he doesn't have enough internet points to be given endless excuses for not drawing.

We all know how it works:

Nash? Lol, he sucked, worst drawing champion ever (even though he isn't)

Rollins? It was everyone else's fault, but his, that his title reigns flopped.

HHH gets the most by far. I don't see many Reigns detractors comparing him to Austin/Rock every month. And HHH's not even FOTC.

Because he kept himself on top for over a decade.

Anyone who was watching Raw back in 2002-05 knows exactly why he's so hated.
