Triple H Ego issues

Hey Scott, the podcasts that have been released with Punk have painted Hunter in a pretty unflattering light, more so than the previous years.  There seems to be a pretty big pattern looking back at his career that paints him as a pretty insecure man that just has to insert himself as the center of some attention.  Examples include:

- Two straight WrestleMania (sub-par) matches with the Undertaker following the previous two (good) matches between Shawn and Taker

- Inserting himself in the Summer of Punk that led to a Kevin Nash feud that lit nothing on fire and led to no resolution for Punk

- Continuously being put in the same star level of Austin and the Rock (not that he wasn't good back then, but he is nowhere near their caliber)

- Pinning and burying Hurricane immediately after Helms pinned Rocky in a comedy "Feud", because Hunter

- Awarding himself a World Championship and burying various people in the process

- Wrestling Brock Lesnar in a trilogy of so-so matches, just because

- Acting like the cool guy in either heel or face mode and pretty much belittling anything during promos.

- The twenty minute promos that he made a chore to sit through for years, again because Hunter

Too many more I left out for the attention.  You can tell the insecurity in him considering that we keep hearing that no one wants to approach him backstage because of how he was more or less publicly punked out by Punk.  I think the most telling moments of ego that I can think of at the top of my head are these two.

- At the end of Thy Kingdom Come they spend the last ten minutes of the documentary saying how much of a reat person/wrestler he is.  Seriously, they spend ten minutes singing his praises, like they have to keep his ego up.

- The end of Wrestling with Shadows where he smugly says he has nothing to do with the Screwjob and gets verbally torn down by JUlie Hart.  I remember noticing HHH just sort of became quiet in a way that reminds when a kid is told off by his mom.

thoughts?

​This is a pretty grossly misrepresented and biased look at HHH's career.

I mean, clearly the Undertaker matches were damn good. ​

    He also beat RVD who unified the Hardcore, Euro and IC belts.

  27. The SAG basic contract specifies: the number of hours performers may work, the frequency of meal breaks required, the minimum wages or "scale" at which performers must be compensated for their work, overtime pay, travel accommodations, wardrobe allowances, stunt pay, private dressing rooms, and adequate rest periods between performances.



    Yeah it sure is "weird" why WWE hasn't joined up.

  31. As is the (true, but incongruent) point about him beating Helms in the middle of a list of recent happenings.

    This is the thing: HHH has obvious insecurity issues, which is probably why Vince gravitated to him once he got to know him. The good news for fans is that Vince's issues manifest in CELEBRITY GUEST HOSTS NEXT WEEK ON RAW and movies while HHH's manifest as him taking over developmental and signing what he feels are the world's best talents (something the Internet 90% agrees with him on).

  36. I liked the WM27 match.
    Anyone remember summer of 99 when most of us were complaining about Austin hold HHH down? I thnk the dynamic would have worked better with the roles reversed. keep HHH face and turn Austin in the sprint. Then do the match at Summerslam or whatever. HHH could have turned heel later for the Rocky feud. I think it would have solved a lot of booking issues they had at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This. I cannot believe people still cling to the "HHH SHOVEL LOL" meme when the past 18 months have been him looking like a fucking goober.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Let's not forget that Vince, too, is an insecure dude who likes to undermine wrestlers from other promotions (the Invasion, anyone?). It's very possible that it was his idea for Trips to go over Benoit and Tazz, although I doubt HHH was kicking and screaming at the idea.

    I don't get the praise for the WM 27 match. I remember sitting there watching it bored because I never once felt that the Streak was in jeopardy. When HHH hit the Tombstone I actually said out loud "You're not Kane. That's not going to work." It's not like it was impossible to make me believe the Streak was in trouble though as the WM 25 match had me jumping off my couch at the near falls. The Cell match was great though and I totally bought the Streak dying after the superkick into the Pedigree.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Or his dumbness is way up.

  64. I thought Randy" The Legend Killer" Orton had a good chance at Mania XXI.


    They really botched Randy's babyface world title run in fall 2004 so i thought a win over Taker could have been in the cards.


    Hell if he didn't get hurt i think that may have been the plan.

  68. I remember when Goldust and Cody won the tag titles from The Shield on RAW last year. The pop was huge as it was rare for The Shield to be beat. But instead of Goldust and Cody getting to raise the titles in a monumental victory, HHH runs in, shoves them aside like garbage and mean-stares The Big Show to end the show.

    And those Undertaker matches fucking sucked. 45 minutes of two old dudes throwing chair shots and lying around.

  150. Fuck that was the drizzling shits.


    Pretty sure the title was supposed to switch around ala the Hardcore title too before someone came to their senses.

    That's one thing I will kind of agree with you on. I didn't like the Triple H reign of terror myself, but it was sort of a necessary evil to make the title seem worth anything.

    Kennel from hell was that.

    ReplyDelete
  154. A verbal debate inside the Cell which is held up by ladders.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Wasn't that what Kennel in a Cell was? I don't even remember.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Yes he was. Hell, I remember him getting face pops around that time.

    With bees on the outside. And when you step outside the bees come after you. And there's a beehive in every corner, except one of them is fake and is filled with pink slips.

  158. Kennel From Hell, is that the name of the master bedroom in your house?

  159. Hogan's obsession and refusal the acknowledge someone else deserves to be champion would make Bret Hart say "wow, clam down buddy."

  160. Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to have Cena-Rollins at TLC as a "No. 1 contender's match" instead of a "If Cena loses he is no longer No. 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship" match?

    That jobber convention would have George South and Reno Riggins.


    Wait, I think South died. Just Riggins then.

  162. How much crack did JYD smoke before this interview you think?

    ReplyDelete
  163. Rollins already has the briefcase. He isn't trying to be #1 contender.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Rollins already has the MITB.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I picture him in bed rolling around and grabbing his knee until he finishes,

    ReplyDelete
  166. That would invalidate the previous #1 contenders match though.

  167. The company went down the toilet then. It was a horrible year for the WWE

    ReplyDelete
  168. ...got that new white stuff...lol damn

  169. HHH from 2002-2003 was awful he was Vinces instrument to bury WCW. He did however put over Benoit, Batista, and Cena clean in three straight WMs. You can also put his 2000-torn quad run,up against absolutely anyone ever in the company.

    I have a much more boring story. I met the chick at work, and one time I was walking up to the bar and she was driving by and pulled over and we talked for a minute and it turns out we lived around the corner from each other, and she gave me her number. Because I'm a fucking idiot I didn't see the signs, Later on she was always tagging along with one of my fellow potheads when we drove off for our lunch break to get blazed, and again, because I'm a fucking idiot I didn't see the signs, though that caused a whole shitshow with my fellow pothead who got pissed thinking I "stole" her from him (forgetting that he's FUCKING MARRIED). I couple weeks later she drove me to the employee party, we get there and I pretty much ignore her the whole time, she's driving me home and is like "Really, are you fucking retarded? I've been throwing myself at you for about 6 months".

    Ironically, another new stipulation match in the stair match is forming in Cleveland. Same place where the scramble match happened.

  172. So did Edge and i recall him wanting to become number one contender in another match just as a backup plan.


    Or am i remembering that wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  173. Dude that promo is epic, I'm pretty sure when Blackjack talks about his gaining 15 pounds and keeping the honey wagon downwind he's saying her pussy stinks too lol

  175. Even if you are wrong, Edge was just a brighter guy.

    OK then.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I think it's perfectly reasonable for a heel to be greedy and want both.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Sure, but it was already on huge downswing. Having a guy like Trips (and over on SD, guys like Angle and Lesnar) on top as opposed to bonafide megastars like Austin and Rocky obviously contributed greatly to that, but the company was already beginning it's fall when those two were still around.

    Which is why I'm shocked they haven't done something like that yet, since they did have two titles to work with years ago.

    Anyone that tries to defend 2002 – 2003 WWE was obviously not around to watch 2002–2003 WWE. Beyond the SmackDown Six, it was nigh unwatchable.

    ReplyDelete
  182. But how was HHH over huge? It would have been a disaster had Shawn not come back in 2002. He was doing the Katie Vick shit that year.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Saying HHH was over huge is just laughable.

  184. I suppose I couldn't have expected noted choker Rick Barnes to take down Pay Pal Cal's all-stars tonight...

    Already the cool new team gets the jobber entrance.

  186. How about this for a match idea: I call it the 'Marsellus Wallace Invitational'. It's kind of like a boiler room brawl, except there's a cop down there called Zed, a gimp they keep in a chest and a bearded fellow... I forget his name. I forgot where this was headed.

    ReplyDelete
  187. The Booker T thing still kills me. I had zero problems with the racial overtones of the feud and it helped Book get legit white hot. I do t want to hear about Goldberg b/c he worked Rock and Jericho first. Give him the win to pop the crowd, give him some credibility, and then switch back at either Backlash or Badd Blood. No harm, no foul.

  188. That's too much uptown, you gotta go back downtown!

  189. BTW the 76ers won before Cesaro did

  190. I didn't say he was over huge. I said he was pretty over. There's a substantial difference in emphasis.
