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

"All born equal unless you're Canadian
Then halfway through decay like Uranium
You define what's death-defying
Get the most out of life or at the least die trying
Are you Evil Knievel jumping a train?
Or running with scissors like Frasier Crane?
Have really good times doing really bad things
‘Cause the show ain't over ‘til the fat lady sings
Like Elton John with his candle in the wind
It's hard to blow out a flame as big as him
But we've all got to Wang Chung with the Grim Reaper
Whether you're Einstein whether you're Beaker
Death is certain so it's definitely worth flirtin'
Don't expect a bright light no just curtains
Life is like a penis most people don't know it
But most people suck so they usually blow it"

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...

Y'know, while we're on the subject of Triple H...

Has he jobbed even once since his return without getting the job back in short order? Or jobbed cleanly? Or gotten a severe beatdown that he was unable to recover from within short order?

Well, recently, he had to cheat to beat Lance Storm and he lost to D-Von Dudley.

Or jobbed cleanly?

Main event faces rarely job cleanly anyway. Look at Rock.

Or gotten a severe beatdown that he was unable to recover from within short order?

That night when Jericho gave him shots to the head three times and busting him open each time could count as one.

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.

They got mainstream attention but the LIVE wedding Smackdown had the exact same 3.4 rating as the week before. So if it did get a mainstream audience that would mean the same number of current fans went "F-this" and didn't tune in.
