When Brock Lesnar made his big return to the WWE last year after being away for so long, Brock lost a fantastic match to John Cena at Extreme Rules in what should have been the start of a long feud between the two. Instead, when Brock was set for another ppv, we got Triple H vs Brock Lesnar, and the two had a series of so-so matches at Summerslam, Wrestlemania and Extreme Rules.
And most recently, Daniel Bryan had reached heights similar to Punk in 2011, and Triple H showed up again, this time inserting himself directly in the biggest storyline the WWE has had in several years. Triple H is now the most dominant heel figure in the WWE, even more so than Randy Orton, the guy who is actually wrestling the matches. I am a fan of Triple H, but sometimes this stuff really rubs me the wrong way, and I can't ignore that there may be some truth to all the talk about Triple H being an egomaniac.
As much as people like to bash Triple H, I do think that the WWE is in good hands with him at the helm. Triple H may be his own biggest fan, but I think the man has a really good mind for the business, and so far the WWE has done a really good job of building it's company for the future.
Triple H is known for his old-school mentality. He was taught by the legendary Killer Kowalski, and his in-ring prowess reminded many of legends such as Harley Race and Arn Anderson. At a time when the WWE may seem a little too cartoony for some fans tastes, Triple H brings a balance of realistic, hardened violence that many fans are dying to see.
But Triple H has also shown faith in more 21st Century tactics in addition to his old-school beliefs. Since he has taken more control over the day-to-day operations of the company, the WWE has signed a boatload of the most talented independent performers in the wrestling world. Untraditional wrestlers such as CM Punk and Daniel Bryan have also seen a real boom in commitment towards themselves since HHH has taken some of the reigns away from Vince McMahon.
The book on Triple H is far from closed, and realistically his biggest contributions to the wrestling world are most likely yet to come. As Vince McMahon continues to be phased out of a lot of the WWE's operations, the Triple H's impact on wrestling will only continue to grow. For the sake of professional wrestling as a major form of entertainment, let us hope that The Game is up for the task.
