I've never said Triple H never had a great match. (There I underlined it for you.)

He's one of my favorite heels of all time and the best wrestler (in promos, matches, his character) in the year 2000. I'm not taking anything away from him.

But when it comes down to pushing other talent to the top, he doesn't bring the same passion he brought when facing HBK, Rock, Austin, Foley, Taker.

Besides his Batista feud, which I hardly remember, his feuds with Cena, Orton, Punk, and Edge weren't great. While HBK, Rock, Foley and Taker had great matches with those guys.

He has put people over occasionally. Batista is the most well known. He put over Goldberg (took a long time though ) at Unforgiven 2003, Chris Jericho countless times, Shelton Benjamin (lost to him three times!?), Benoit at WM20, Batista in the WM after, Orton at WM25, and Sheamus most recently at ER2012. He basically 'made' Orton and Batista.

Just small list. HHH is notorious for burying anyone and everyone, going against anything Creative or Vince put-forth that involves him losing a match and putting over anyone, and buried countless others through backstage politics. What's the burying list like? Mr Kennedy, Carlito, Rob Van Dam, Owen Hart, Jeff Hardy, Umaga, Vladimir Kozlov, Kane, Scott Steiner, Christian, Ted DiBiase and so, so much more...

But hell, even HHH jobbed to Hogan. It's just how the business works. The cash cows dominate, and I don't like it either.




But what Bret said is stupid. Can we agree on that?

Paul London and Brian Kendrick both cited HHH as their reason for "not caring" in the WWE. It happened during a bit where HHH was being triple teamed by Carlito, Trevor Murdoch and Lance Cade. London and Kendrick (Tag team champs at the time, fueding with Cade and Murdoch) came out for the save and cleared house. You'd expect this would lead to a 6 man tag match the next week or something, instead HHH shook their hands and then pedigreed them both, shrugged his shoulders and walked off.

Also anyone remember the supposed demand from HHH that in any ads for WWE videogames do not feature him in a "defenceless or vulnerable position".

And yeah, Divas division is terrible now.

The thing with the Divas is they have plenty that can perform. Natalya, Tamina, Naomi, AJ etc. But the problem is WWE for whatever reason won't let them.

Michelle McCool gave an interview a few weeks ago where she said that her and Victoria put on a match and when they got backstage, everyone gave them a standing ovation. Then Vince and the bookers came up and yelled at them for beign too good. They said "you can't go out there and upstage the men".

Then another night she said her and Melina had a really good match for Smackdown, and when they got backstage she was already changed then Melina came in and said "they said the punches looked too believable. get dressed they want us to go reshoot it"

It's not the Divas fault at all. WWE is just bein held back by Vince at this point

I don't understand why everyone wants to see Undertaker come back. The dude is old and his body has taken such a beating I don't think he can put on another good match.

Let it go, 20-0 is a good number to retire at.

Undertaker's last 4 matches/feuds with HBK and HHH, respectively were good but mostly due to great acting, storyline, etc.

That last match with HHH was basically 50% chair shots to the body/legs/arms and a split 25/25 between dramatic acting and actually wrestling.

I'll watch his next match but I don't know if I'll enjoy it if it'll be similar as the last 4 matches.

Other than Brock, I don't know he is that big of a name to face him. But Brock is most likely facing Triple H anyway.

Honestly the next time I wanna see Taker wrestle is his retirement match, and I want that to be against Kane. If Kane were ready to retire too I'd say they could have a match, one of them chokeslams the other one thru the ring, fire shoots out and they both disappear into Hell forever. No winner, no loser, just them takin each other down (remember when Kane first came their whole thing was that they were the only ones that could stop each others "powers" or whatever)
