  • Nothing but a pure politician in and out the ring.

    Agree with the previous user who says he is overrated. Not just overrated though but a politician in the ring. Yes he puts people over but then immediately asks the person the person who put him over to give him the title back soon after.

    After a while, it seemed he learned a lesson to stay from the title picture then after hogging the title for almost a year on Smackdown it's pretty obvious this was the same old politician in the ring ala Hulk Hogan.

    It's fine though if that's the way he wants it. He'll never get respect from real hardcore, old wrestling community. He'll be remembered like Hogan to be just a politician in the ring.moreless
  • Very, VERY overrated.

    Hmmm... how shall I put this? Triple H sucks, he is the most overrated, overused superstar ever, EVER. He might actually be in love with Stephanie McMahon, who just happens to be the spoiled brat daughter of Vince McMahon, but I kind of think that he's only in this marriage for all the title shots he could only imagine, which is exactly what he's getting. Triple H is hog, as he never puts over new talent and has to hog all the glory and fame as well as the WWE Championship which he held and did practically nothing with for almost all of 2008. Now, don't get me wrong, he's an awesome wrestler, but he's a boring champion, and it just makes me sick how the fans act like he's God, because he is FAR from it. Its also worth noting, that in real life, when not using the fans as a cover up, he's a first class jerk who only cares about himself and holding the top 2 titles more than anyone else. Triple H is an over the hill superstar who only gets the pushes he recieves because he's married to the boss's daughter, he's been past his prime ever since losing the World Heavyweight Championship to Batista, and even before that he was WAY past his prime and began to lose his touch. Hopefully, here in 09, he won't hold the title as long as he did last year, and loses it to Orton at Wrestlemania, because unlike "The Game", he actually knows how to appreciate and do something with a title.moreless
