Does anyone else think that HHH seems to have slimmed down since he went out for the elbow injury? Last night was the first time he's been out there shirtless in his gear, and he seemed much less musclebound. I'm not surprised that this translated to (IMHO) his first insanely great match since the quad injury. I wouldn't be surprising if it also translated to a less injury-prone HHH. The leaner look (and the Flair flip) also emphasized his "Flair". More Flair and less Steiner = Good.
Of course, it remains to be seen if he can produce the same level of results when he isn't working with an HBK willing to do just about anything to add one last great match to his legacy.

At least we all agree that he did indeed lose the extra weight. It was pretty obvious when I saw him last Monday, so that's a good sign. Everything else is up to him, but I'm not too worried. By the way, I didn't get my voice back yet after last night.

Well I thought it looked like he had lost some weight looking at him the last couple of weeks, but thought maybe it was just my imagination and I had just gotten used to seeing the bigger Triple H. But since other people are noticing the same thing, maybe he really has lost some of that mass.
There's definitely a loss of muscle mass, and an overall smoothing of the physique. Frankly, it looks better. I don't expect to hear him say "HUNTER SMASH" whenever he starts trembling like a freak.
Tonight on RAW, it was really obvious, especially when he came out mocking HBK. That shirt was much looser on his frame. Frankly, he looks a lot better. Here's hoping ring mobility and speed increase along with it. Hell, with Kane and Trips losing weight, could it actually be that the trend is becoming downsizing? That might rule...

The E's ECW did pave the way for NXT as we know it today, so it can't be considered all that bad. That show's been a lot of fun, even if the booking team's been a bit hampered by the week-to-week call-ups and plan changes.
