I was sitting there watching Triple Haitch tonight and it hit me! These past few months I've noticed a bit of a change. Although he's still not quite strong enough to do so, he is trying to incorporate more power moves into his repetoire (roids make big, pretty muscles, NOT real strength). He's wrestling with more and more nagging injuries piling up, specifically in his legs and arm. His "invincible force" bullshit gimmick could be loosely interpreted as "Fighting Spirit". Call me insane, but I DO believe HHH saw a tape of the great Kenta Kobashi and is now trying to imitate the man.
An admirable goal, but the roided-up goon has no hope because a) Kobashi has actual talent, b) Kobashi is at the "broomstick" level of performance where, like a young Ric Flair, can make a broomstick look good in the ring, and c) HHH doesn't seem to understand that "fighting spirit" doesn't mean winning every fight or making all your opponents look like ineffective little bitches.
Like I said, call me insane but Triple H is looking more and more like a piss-poor American version of Kenta Kobashi with roids in his system and infinitely less talent or respect for the business .

Personally, I've always admired the broomstick qualities of The Rock, Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit. All three are willing to job for the good of the company, and all three are very competent workers. And Benoit had to work with Billy Gunn... *Shudder* He's lucky he didn't hurt his neck sooner...

Originally posted by KawshenMain event faces rarely job cleanly anyway. Look at Rock.
I think a "clean" loss for a face isn't necessarily one where no cheating is done by the heels, but one which has no outside interference. For example, at Royal Rumble this year, Chris Jericho defeated the Rock via cheating ways, but he did all the cheating himself. Then, at No Way Out, Jericho defeats Steve Austin, but needs the NWO's help to do so. Therefore, Rock jobbed cleanly, but Austin did not.

A few years back, when Austin was a heel, he defeated Jake 'The Snake' Roberts in the finals of the King of the Ring. Roberts had this new found religion and it somewhat parlayed over to his on screen character.
