Well to no one's real surprise, Triple H retained yet again at Wrestlemania. This now presents the dilemma of who will be the next man to lay down to the Game? For Backlash, here is a list of faces Triple H has not squashed... lately.
-Diesel - Please God No! -Steve Austin - Been there, done that. -Hurricane -Test -Spike Dudley -D'Von Dudley -Trish Stratus -Bradshaw (when is he due back?) -Jaqueline -Molly Holly (she's a face now, right?)
March 31, 2003 ... the day it officially became ok to become a HHHater.
"If my ass was a football, would you kick it?" - Norman Darter
I myself vote for him to fight a rabid squirrel in a burlap sack.
The problem is not "Who is HHH's next opponent?" the problem is "will anyone give a shit now that the past 4 opponents have all been shown to be NOTHING before HHH's mighty onslaught?"
If there's no chance the other guy might win, who gives a fuck? I realise it's wrestling and the outcomes are predetermined, but Sweet Jesus, I'd imagine you have to at least PRETEND it's an even contest in order to get people to pay for it.
-LS "I don't know if we can beat these bastards." "Maybe not, but we don't have to JOIN them."
I would go bananas if there was some sort of circumstance that made Spike Dudley pin Triple H for the title. Not just because he's the most unlikely, but I think it would be a really interesting angle.
The same thing could be said about Brock Lesnar. Who's next for him?? The list is short for heels on Smackdown.
OOPS! You bwoke it.

Well, they could turn Jericho face again and ... okay, okay.
If it's not Diesel or Goldberg, it'll have to be Austin. Not many other choices. Even Vince seems to have finally realized that Steiner blows, and HBK/Triple H has already been done recently. I really can't see Booker getting another shot -- if they don't put him over at Wrestlemania, it doesn't demonstrate a lot of interest in elevating him. Besides, we have the precedent of RVD to go by.
"next to of course god america i love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh say can you see by the dawn's early my country tis of centuries come and go and are no more what of it we should worry in every language even deafanddumb thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry by jingo by gee by gosh by gum why talk of beauty what could be more beaut- iful than these heroic happy dead who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter they did not stop to think they died instead then shall the voice of liberty be mute?"
I like Austin as a next opponent. The match is fresh enough for now.. and they could even start it tonight with HHH badgering Austin about coming back only to lose the big one... and of course, Triple H can say how he came out on top last night, just to piss Austin off a little bit more... I'd watch that match again.
"Triple H, The Rock says they didn't keep you at the bottom of the barrel just because you wanted to say goodbye to your roody poo friends in Madison Square Garden. No! The Rock says, they kept you at the bottom of the barrel because you absolutely suck."
Well, there are still a couple ways that they could salvage the Booker T feud. They could have Booker go over in a rematch, at Backlash or even on free tv. Of course, this would totally confirm everything the net believes about HHH, ie. his unwillingness to job on the big show. For my money though, what they should do is have HHH drop the belt due to "injury", take some time off and give the belt to Booker in a tourny. Then you can build to a rematch down the road.
I love wrestling, but the WWE may be able to finally end my fandom after 20+ years if they don't come up with something soon.
I hope that Booker can get a rematch and then finally go over and keep the belt through a couple of PPVs at the minimum. I give that 50% chance of happening, though.
It is said that there aren't any people positioned to pursue HHH. I think Jericho still needs a win from HBK, and hopefully a rematch in which Jericho goes over is in the plans. A strong heel Jericho could be a challenger based on the Heel/Heel dynamic, even if Jericho emerged as a face during the match, he could instantly re-heel himself, hopefully. (I think heel Jericho is more entertaining than face Jericho.)
I think Rocky is the only person who could go over HHH, but he's short-timing us now. I despise Bill Goldberg, he doesn't respect wrestling, he doesn't appreciate the fans, and he brags about injuring wrestlers (I read an article online about 3 or 4 years ago where he was bragging about injuring LaParka), and he isn't safe in the ring.
I put myself in the same boat that is hoping that somehow they'll work with Booker and put the belt on him within the next month. I'm also hoping the Easter Bunny Brings me candy on April 20.
Originally posted by TwoflowerAccording to 1W, the idea was to keep HHH as a strong heel so he can take on Goldberg at Bad Blood, the next PPV after Backlash. So even if Booker gets a rematch, he'll be jobbing again.
Thing is, he can't look any "stronger". He's gone over pretty much all of the RAW roster to the point of the crowd not biting on the majority of the near-falls in their match.
I seriously thought the Hangover was the finish until it was obvious that Booker was taking too long to make the cover.
This is the only way I see the future working, but it requires a bit of fantasy booking on my part, so I apologize if you're not into that kind of thing.
Tonight, HHH cuts a promo giving credit to Booker for taking him to the limit, and unlike some of his past opponents he actually might deserve a rematch...if he beats a friend of his...Kevin Nash. Booker gets past Nash and wins the rematch with Trips at Backlash thanks to interference from Goldberg. Trips gets Goldberg in a grudge match at Bad Blood. Booker meanwhile can feud with Nash (perhaps) over the title, eventually (and unfortunately) losing it back to Trips at Summerslam (maybe in a 3-way also involving Goldberg). But, alas, this leaves nothing for Austin to do. I have a feeling he might be rethinking his decision to come back.
This is what I'd LIKE to see, but my gut tells me Booker's done with the main event for now. Maybe he can get another shot when the traffic jam at the top clears up a bit.
Well, to NOT answer the question... In terms of wrestling films, I would heartily reccommend the Foul King, the greatest fictional wrestling film ever. (Korean, my avatar id swiped from the film) I would also suggest looking for Calamari Wrestler.
