Dusty Rhodes: They always ask me, "Why did you put yourself on top?" I asked Hunter the same thing. The would be booker that he is. He doesn't even have a finish named after him. How can Triple H be a great booker when he doesn't have a finish named after him.
That's so true. That's pretty much for any character. What's interesting for a character (babyface or heel) is how they deal with adversity. LIke you said it adds vulnerability and therefore some depth.
