Where to begin? HHH isn't a wrestler I have particularly liked at all. Did like him coming up as a midcarder during the summer of 98 feuding with the Nation, but other than that not a big fan. Not to say he wasn't a great heel because he was. You just won't see me sporting merch of HHH or whatever. Not good explaination, but in any case:
You can't really compare his antics to others. HHH has just did it for a very long time. Shawn always comes back and gives back to the business. Granted he did some things that cost guys jobs in the 90s like Douglas, Vader de-push, Tatanka IC title reign, but overall he has helped make stars in the business today without wearing the world title. He isn't all about wins and losses. I mean his work with Mr.Kennedy, Benjamin, Orton, Batista, and so forth have been great. I mean, how many times did HBK challenge for the world title and lose to HHH in yet, HHH is still not recognized as on his level.
Go back to Taker, yes he cost Faker Taker his job in the past. Who cares? He helped elevate more stars than he hurt unlike HHH. Whether it be Batista, Edge, Foley, Kane, Heidenreich, among others. Taker too wasn't a glory hog like HHH, he went several years without a world title reign like HBK. Back to the CM Punk situation, Punk compared himself right off the bat to John Cena. All Taker did was ask him to dress better to present the company. Punk obviously was getting a big head because you don't disrespect the deadman. You take advice like you should. I wasn't happy either that Punk lost the world title to Taker, however, do you think Punk should dress better than he did in those days? I certainly do. If you want to be the man of a company you must dress how they want you to dress. This isn't 98 anymore, WWE is a public company. You must please people such as ads, tv, and so forth.
Who did Flair hold down? The reason he left for WWF back in 92 was because the big its promised Windham would be getting the world title. Not Luger, not sticking to their word along with being disrespectful to the Nature Boy he left. As far as putting people over, no one in the biz was better at elevating the game of whoever was in the ring with him. Flair has lost to everyone that I can remember. He was midcard guy for years in WCW and WWE. Even when he was on top, he lost to them all whether it be Sting, Steamboat, ect.
Other than Montreal, I couldn't tell you a time he didn't want to put over somebody. Maybe you can give me more info on Bret's politics because he always raised the game of others when they were in the ring with him. Remember the Raw match he had with 123 kid. Do I agree with Bret not putting over HBK? No, but I can understand why he didn't want to do it because Shawn not only making that comment that he wouldn't put him over weeks or months before Survivor Series. HBK also had the clique, Bret was worried about the other boys well at least I believe so anyway. HBK, Diesel, Razor overshadowing the main events like they did in the past.
Austin didn't put over Brock and went home because it wasn't best for business. It wasn't because he didn't want to lose to Brock. It was because he thought it should have build. Not just a main event for Raw. Do you believe Austin/Brock match would draw money? Even today, I think it would have. What pissed him off to was they advertised matches for King of the ring that year and didn't tell him anything about it. Personal issues to boot....As far as Hogan goes for Austin not wanting to put him over. Well, he thought it would be a bad match for us wrestling fans. Had nothing really to do with losing. Other than that, can't recall him not wanting to put someone over other than H in 99 at Summerslam.
Don't really care for the other 2 especially Hogan. Respond about HHHs career in a different comment.
Lol at "Orton cannot get over with the crowd as a heel"
The fucking man gets the biggest heat compared to anyone on the roster right now.
Have you listened to the reaction he's been getting the past weeks?
