Hunter saying "I never wanted to be a corporate suit" makes no sense from the history of his character because he literally conspired with the boss's daughter (or benefited from her Stockholm Syndrome, I forget how that was explained), manipulated the owner out of power, and assembled a REGIME to run the company. I mean, his character for about 12 years was all about political machinations. And now they pretend he's been Stone Cold all these years just wanting to throw fists instead of talking. His final match should have been with Taker. That was a perfect sendoff.

I think he means more in a desk job sense.

As the Cerebral Assassin, he manipulated people, formed Evolution and had absolute power on his side. His on-screen marriage to Stephanie benefitted his in-ring career because he could pull strings and get title shots etc.

As on-screen COO, though, he actually has to be involved in the day-to-day runnings of the company rather than being in the ring and fighting.

So basically, while he's always been power-hungry, he's never wanted to step back and be a spectator rather than a wrestler.

He wanted power and control but that doesn't mean he wanted it from a desk job. He wanted it so he could run the show and be its champion etc. Him wanting power way back when doesn't mean that he wanted to leave wrestling for a corporate job away from the ring. WWE is all about lack of logic these days but I wouldn't count this as part of that.

But that didn't make sense before too no ? Because they say that HHH is married with Stephanie and that they are happy together but Triple H divorce from Stephanie ... and I don't think they got married again.They should hate eachother

That segment didn't really make a whole lot of sense as Lesnar has no more reason to agree to anything and Heyman just has another lawsuit to file.

Still, going to wait and see how this angle progresses towards Summerslam.

hell , during his build up for the match against Taker for WM 28 he said that he's not "that guy" anymore , and that he deals with things from a business perspective , and that undertaker is a "brand"

lol

this is WWE's yet another example of zero continuity , the writing staff are basically a group of retards looking for a corner in a round room

He was also a member of the rebellious, anti-authority DX, so really, it could go either way.

With the possible exception of Wrestlemania 27's storylines, I think WWE typically plans their WM storylines well in advance, obviously resulting in more quality and consistency. Obviously since it's during the summer, everyone's just sitting on their hands atm. The product before WM28 was far better then ATM.

Earlier this year "I'VE GOT RESPONSISBLITIES! REAL LIFE RESPONSISBILITIES! I'M NOT THAT GUY ANYMORE!"

No Way Out "Lets fight, Brock, lets fight Brock, Brock lets fight, lets fight..... because..... you broke my arm and shit"

FUCK CONSISTENCY AND LOGIC.

This was a thing that bugged me about the promo... granted the difference is Taker just asked HHH for a rematch. Brock broke HHH's arm. It makes sense why HHH is thinking differently as Brock gave HHH a good reason to want to fight him and not care about his responsibilities.

I just found the promo as a whole a bore, even Heyman's part didn't grab me as much as it should. Basically the promo was

"Brock will not fight you and we'll not drop the lawsuits!"
"Brock will fight me!"
"No!"
"Yes!"
"No!"
"Yes"
"Stephanie!"
*Heyman gets grabbed, then let go*
"I knew you wouldn't punch me..."
*Gets knocked out*

Triple H's promo made no sense? Gee according to the IWC nothing in the WWE makes sense so of course HHH's promo didn't make sense

Yeah that segment was bad. What made it worse the switching between his normal voice and "The Game" voice. Shit gets on my nerves. Pick a voice and stick with it.

Triple H pisses me off. He is nothing more than a fucking washed up old ass can't let go of the spotlight son of *****. He always has too be the center of attention.
