Triple H said last night that he headlined more PPVs and he is correct, but it is close.
Triple H has 20, HBK has 17. For Triple H, I counted the 6/97 King of the Ring because it was the final match of the night. And I counted Wrestlemania 18, even though it can be argued that the real main event was Hogan/Rock. I didn’t count the England PPVs, but if you want to, just add 1 for HBK and add 3 for Triple H. Interesting to note the HBK has headlined 3 Manias compared to 1.5 for Triple H. And HBK has more success in Royal Rumbles.

Triple H had 5 Championship runs compared to 3 for HBK. This may lead you to believe that Triple H spent more time as the champion. However this is not the case. If you total the amount of time each wrestler spent as the Champ it equals 257 days for Triple H and 402 for Shawn Michaels. Many people forget that HBKs first title run lasted around 8 months. This is the longest title run in the last 7 years.

Thank god for Austin, or HHH would have about 40, giving a REALLY ridiculous perspective how relatively potent the two men (HHH and HBK) were as headliners.

I was somewhat surprised at the totals. HBK was around for more of the 'ppv every month or bust' era than I had realized.

Water? Water, anyone? The humor level here has gotten so dry, it's like a broke guy at Woodstock 99.

You know, HBK has got to be what, eight years older than HHH? But he's carrying his age much better. Therefore: Must revive the 'No shots to the face' stip from Summer Slam 1992!

(So long as no one frenches their sister after the match, like Rick Martel did Shari after that one.)

How far back are those totals going? Does it include the '92 Survivor Series, when HBK lost to Bret Hart in the Main?

Yep, I included all WWF PPVs including that one. the next one HBK headlined after that was the 1995 Mania.

And HBK is 36 while Triple H is 32, so the age difference isn't as big as the Rock 29 vs. Brock 24 or Benoit 35 vs. RVD 30. I don't see a big age gap here.

No way Hunter loses this match. They're gonna use the fan-sympathetic HBK character to get Hunter over as a mega-heel again... it's the same thing they did with Mick Foley. Destroying Mick's dreams of being champ/ main-eventing Wrestlemania (even though Linda brought him back) really made Triple H seem like an asshole.

I hope HHH loses.

For two reasons.
1) To start a losing streak for him. Starting with losing to Chris Jericho cleanly. Maybe McMahon will realize that HHH doesn't draw like he used to(hopefully)

2) To surprise everyone. It's not as good as when all your predictions come true. A surprise like this would make me happy.

As much as i want to see HBK go over HHH... i dont think it will happen. Feels like this is it for HBK. I would like to see him go out with a win.... but it's going to be used to supposedly "put" triple H over. I would like to see a surprise though.



I've torn myself apart.... and tried to figure out why... but the only answer i was ever given... that really fits..... is the fact... that women are crazy.

Skorpio, Nash/HBK for the world title was not the main event at wrestlemania 11 in 1995. The main event was Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Lawrence Taylor.

Seems like people sure do that a lot for ol' HHH don't they? I know the HHH fan-boys will have their usual set of reasons why this too really isn't HHH being given far more push than anyone else gets or somehow try to justify the amount of push given to him, but really isn't retiring one legend enough for a career? Is there no one in the WWE who could benefit more from putting HBK into retirement than Hunter? Wouldn't the destruction of HBK by Lesnar do far more for his character and his drawing power than yet another in the seemingly endless string of feuds won by HHH is going to do for anyone? I know it's seen as passe by some to speak ill of HHH, but really, something is wrong here. I don't know if its HHH is a fine politician, or just good in bed, or if he just sits backstage quietly and waits for his assignments, but someone has really come up with some odd ideas about how best to book HHH, either Steph or Vince or HHH or somebody.

And the worst part is that really the only wise booking is to have HHH go over HBK, now that they've booked themselves into this position. It's worked out so that they either have the old crippled retiree go over their top heel, or HHH gets to have another huge feather in his cap. Way to go WWE. Only you guys could make yet another HHH victory look like the only right booking call.

No.

Oh, man, that's when Michaels was so cool. And Martel, for that matter. That match confused the hell out of me at the time -- I'd never seen a heel-vs.-heel match before. I thought it was against the rules.

Actually, wasn't the Undertaker vs Faarooq for the WWF Title the final match of the night?

This is getting tougher than I thought. The 6/97 King of the Ring could be counted for Triple H, since he won the tournament. The title match was Undertaker/Farooq, which I don't believe was a heavily promoted match. It also had HBK/Austin which was the most hyped match, but had a screwjob ending and didn't have the main event feel.

I counted WM 11 for HBK/Diesel, even though Bam Bam vs. LT was the last match on the night. I'd like to check the video box for WM 11. Whoever it shows on the cover, I'd give credit for the main event.

So, Billy Gunn vs X-Pac and Mabel vs Savio Vega were main events?
It really depends on how the finals are promoted, true, but there was no strong uppercard at KOTR '97, so I'd give the only "main event" nod to the Title match (UT vs Faarooq) and HBK-Austin as semi-main at best.

It is true that we had Bret Hart vs Bam Bam Bigelow headline the first KOTR PPV, but that's an extreme rarity. In fact, I don't think it's happened again in the 10 KOTR PPVs we've had.

But, hey, it's your statistical analysis, so I won't be a dick about it. :)

Well, King of the Ring is over. Honestly, The one thing I was truly disappointed with is Brock winning. KING BOOKER!! Oh well. I'm ecstatic that Molly finally won, but why did it have to be during an angle about her ass?
