At the 2000 Survivor Series, Stone Cold Steve Austin used a forklift to hoist Triple H's car fifty feet in the air and send it crashing (upside-down) back to earth.

Triple H was back on television within two weeks, and in fact wrestled at the following pay-per-view, Armageddon, in a six-man Hell in a Cell for the WWF Championship.

Compare that with Triple H's most recent (real) injury in May 2001. He tears his quadricep doing something quite routine-- breaking up the Walls of Jericho that Jericho had on Austin. He then proceeds to be out the rest of the year, and comes back in January of 2002.

You wonder why some people love bashing wrestling so much? This is among one of the chief reasons. When someone makes a Jesus-like comeback within two weeks from an attempt at vehicular homicide, only to go down after something that should have been routine, it makes wrestling look really, really bad.

Damn it, Vince. If you were gonna have that angle at the 2000 Survivor Series, you could at least say, OK, that means we have to write Triple H out of the storylines for at least a few months. Instead of trying to forget it ever happened. That way, when someone really gets hurt, it doesn't make him look like he's suddenly become the world's biggest pussy.

Crap, it's like suriviving plummeting off of a canyon, only to be holed up for eight months after an errant steel chair shot.

This is not a knock on Triple H, though, more a knock on the WWF writers for coming up with the idoitic forklift angle to begin with-- and then copping out on it.

Reminds me about the crack Buff Bagwell made in WCW about the idiots in the back writing this crap.

And that, as they say, is that.

I think you're using the term "vehicular homicide" very loosely here. Traditionally, vehicular homicide involves someone trying to kill someone using a car. Often, by trying to run them down with it. When Steve-O tried to kill HHH, the car was really incidental to the fact that he was dropping him 50 feet. It was just plain old attempted homicide.

I don't think I've EVER seen somebody use Triple H's car trip/quad tear as their reason to bash wrestling....your point eludes me, unless you just wanted to grouse about Triple H (which there's certainly a lot of prevailing attitude in that direction these days, to be fair).

Triple H used his god like (booking) powers to return only a week later.
However he wasn't able to book himself into no-selling the tear.
Didn't they once say he miraculously escaped any serious injury..good enough for me
It wasn't 50ft btw..remember this was a wrestling exaggeration.

I think nobody who 'disses wrestling' ever used that, they would focus more on the homicide part of the whole deal than on the fact that Trip returned so soon..
Only the people who watch/discuss wrestling would notice he returned a week later.

Imagine this is some funny signature. Then I will imagine you compliment me on it.

Yo, Personally I love HBK's costumes they just add to the whole 'show' part of him being the 'showstoppa'. as far as his entrances go, i liked his 'pre-religion' entrances with his muscle pose in front of the pyro. and in closing i would just like to say....
