Every time this particular question is raised, I flash back to the RAWs of years past --

Heckler: SHAWN IS GAY!
Shawn Michaels: You can ask your mother if Shawn is gay!

I don't know, I can't help it. That's always the first thing that pops into my head.

    And also, going back to 1999/2000, Triple H's character has ALWAYS been that of a "tough" heel, rather than the Jericho or Flair-esque "coward" type. It has to do with his intensity in the ring, his physique, all of that. I wouldn't go as far as to say he was "lucky". His tough guy persona is what took him from mid card Greenwich snob to muscle-bound intense champion in the late 90's. I don't see why we have to look at this as another holding down conspiracy theory.

Firstly, people in general do not have this innate want or need to hate HHH. There isn't some prejudice against muscle-bound intense guys that happen to be in relationships with the boss' daughter amd always come out on top despite other people being bigger proven successes or having greater potential. Well, okay, maybe there is. But, it's not something personal with HHH.

There's been enough damage to other people's careers, enough "HHH is like Ric Flair. Really!" segments, and enough life sucked out of the shows and other performers due to attempts to get HHH over. I could go into specifics, but I think there's too many examples to list since 1999/2000 to show that HHH's "success" to this point has been based off of protective writing more than anything he has ever done to get himself over.

HHH's "tough guy" persona began in 2000 after he started his extremely one-sided feud with Foley. Before that, in 1999 during his first two reigns, he looked like a typical weak heel, like Jericho did in his reign... but, HHH got more opportunities than Jericho did. It wasn't until his third reign (in under 5 months) that WWE finally started putting him over everyone in sight and removed any traces of weakness from his character.

He also happened to start dating Stephanie around this time, which has caused people to associate that relationship with his push, which coincidentally have coincided with each other. Coincidence?

Let's face it. HHH was given an opportunity no one else has been given in WWE history. He has been favored over the real moneymakers in the company and attempts to keep him at the top of the card have resulted in the de-pushing of other people (Angle, Jericho) who could have potentially been great heels not getting the oppportunities he had to do so.

He just wants to dance! Why won't you people let the poor man dance!? ;-)

I really don't mind if he dances....well. But he's just wiggling that so called "ass". I'm sorry, but I'd rather moisten my contact lenses with bleach than look at that hiney. Seriously, I think that Shawn has done a pretty good job since he came back, but come on, when he gives you something to make fun of, you take the ball and run with it!


We miss you already, Kurt!
