I was watching Unforgiven 2002 yesterday and you can really see the difference in him between then and now. Is he a method actor and beefing up for a movie role? Shallow Hal 2 perhaps?.
Surely his conditioning must be suffering, he only seems to fight twice every month recently. Its just a bit wierd, especially considering his book about body building. Soon the WWE are gonna make him wear a thong and give his opponents a stinkface!
Its a bit of a shame, because like him ot not he is a good wrestler, but he has not really been on form recently. Hopefully a WMXX or Backlash defeat by Benoit will let him have some time off to get himself in better shape and come back looking like the HHH of old, instead of the man-titted Simon Cowell look-e-likey he has become.
"Britain, Britain, Britain, land of technological achievement. We’ve had running water for over 10 years, an underground tunnel that links us to Peru and we invented the cat. But none of these inventions would have been possible if it had not been for the people of Britain and it’s those people we look at today.
Part of it is him laying off of the steroids, and his body reverting to a more natural form... and part of it must be him letting himself go with the whole marriage to Stephanie thing. While I'm not a big critic of him, it's hard to take him seriously as a dominant heel world champion when his gut and fat ass are so obvious out there.
Hey, a gut and a fat ass are the telltale signs OF a dominant heel world champ here in North America!
I think it could even go back to his knee injury that he came back from (about a year too early). Who knows how much pain he's in while working out, or even if he's not in any, but just lays off so that he doesn't tear something just doing squats in the gym.
Wrestling exists in the eternal present. What is, has always been, and when it no longer is, it never was. It has no past and no future, and sometimes even today is in question. - Madame Manga
I think he looks quite good actually, like the Hunter of DX...I remember Chris Jericho not exactly being cut to perfection, nobody ever called him fat...I chalk his current look up to his groin tear...I once bruised my thigh, I didn't even want to walk, let alone exert myself.
I don't even see how there can be two schools of thought on this. Either shape up or ship out, you're either "The Game: Triple H" or "Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker". I'd have a ton more respect for Trips if he did some cardio. He openly says that he does no cardio because he wrestles and that's "all the cardio he needs". Well, that was back when he was...you know...athletic. Since obviously it's not getting the job done anymore, get a gazelle or jog in a swimming pool for the love of ballsweat. There's alternatives to just softening up like a dildo made of butter.
I'd tell you to kiss my ass, but I don't want to get it infected.

Well, the HHH back then didn't wear the Iron Cross tights he's wearing now. It's like asking Mick Foley to try and squeeze into Randy Orton's tights (now how's that for a mental image). And Jericho weights a lot less than Hunter does, so he can afford to not be as chiseled because he doesn't have as much body mass.

Yeah, that's true, but to be fair, DX Hunter still had ONE chin, not one and a half chins. Seriously, it could be the slow healing groin, so I will assume that by May he'll be back to his old svelte self.
(edited by Ringmistress on 13.2.04 1030) After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's three things I know for sure... 1)Ain't nothing like a Dirty Pair marathon on New Year's Eve. 2)I'd make a fine Mrs. HHH II. 3) I'd make an acceptable Mrs. Orton. 1400 reasons to luv me!

Actually it had been genuinely bothering me why that sounded familiar and couldn't put my finger on it until it finally dawned in my head where I'd heard it: watching a soccer tourney with some of my British relatives. At the refs, of course :)
What Worked: TKG: That main event was better than it had any right to be. Cena's been consistently unimpressive and this may be his best match since the brand switch. Carlito may be the ideal foil for him. Really liked the wild swinging punch exchange.
