Is Triple H Overrated?

Well you can guess what this blog is about. I am a big fan of Triple H. He is one of my favorite wrestlers and I enjoyed his work in the early 2000s. As Triple H begins to win more and more titles, people argue over the fact if Triple H is abusing his backstage authority. But let me clear a lot of things up for HHH haters:
Triple H's backstage job:
Triple has the job of senior adviser, which means he works directly under Vince McMahon. His responsibilities are to assist Vince on the wrestling and creative side of the WWE. For an example, its basically like an adviser who helps the CEO of a company. The adviser keeps the CEO in check to make sure he doesn't make unwise decisions. Because let's be honest Vince is getting up in age where he practically can't go to the bathroom by himself.
Triple H's position does give him leverage but it's not to the point where he can do a Jeff Jarrett and claim all the titles for himself. People also believe that his position has a lot of leverage in the creative team. That is partially true. Just like the President of the United States, the president can't decide to pass a bill without anyone else consent. This goes for the same for HHH. The only creative leverage he has had so far that we know of is Sheamus, which in my opinion and a lot of others’ was a good idea to give him a major push. Sheamus is now over with the fans because of HHH.
Triple H destroys wrestler's careers:
Triple has been the leader of two stables. Triple H began his reign of leadership when he was with Degeneration X. Alongside him was X Pac, Billy Gunn, Road Dog, and Chyna. Out of those 4 members, only one was able to become a star and that was Chyna. Billy Gunn and Road Dog never were very talent. And as for X Pac, c’mon, it’s X Pac. He was born to fail.
After DX stable, he became the leader of Evolution which consisted of Batista, Randy Orton and Ric Flair. Both Batista and Randy Orton reached their rise to fame, and no one can dispute that.
Besides the stables, people believe that Triple H is responsible for Mr. Kennedy’s firing. Actually, the only person’s fault is Mr. Kennedy’s. Mr. Kennedy is also a favorite of mine. However, I won’t lie and say that he isn’t injury prone (to himself and everyone around him). Kennedy almost injured Orton; he injured Bobby Lashley, Hardcore Holly, and Kennedy was injured three times. So even if HHH was fully responsible, you can’t deny the fact that it was because of Kennedy’s injury prone state.
Triple H only has five moves just like Cena:
Triple has been in the WWE since 1995. Within those years, he has had two similar injuries on his quadriceps. One was in 2001 and the other was in 2007. Besides Triple H’s injuries, age has a lot to do with wrestling. Triple H cannot perform the same wrestling moves that he use to because of his age (41) and has two knee injuries. Rey Mysterio has had his fair share of knee injuries as well, and look at him. He can barely pull of a hurricarana. You cannot compare Cena to HHH. John Cena is still young and has had two injuries. Before John Cena had these injuries, he still did the same 5 moves! The fact is Triple H was at his prime in the early 2000s. If you compare HHH at his prime and Cena now (Super Cena), HHH has had better matches and could offer more in-ring skills.
Triple H is overrated:
Many people also believe that if HHH hadn't married Stephanie McMahon, HHH wouldn't be as over as he is now. That fact is, HHH married Steph on October 25th of 2003. Before then, Triple had already had five WWF championship title reigns. 2 in 1999, 2 in 2000 and 1 in 2002. The fact is no matter how you try to deny it, you can never take away HHH's success. HHH being the son-in-law of Vince McMahon means nothing. And here's why:
If Stephanie McMahon would have decided to married X Pac, do you honestly believe that X Pac would have been a 13 time or even 1 time WWF(E) Champion!?
If Vince's son-in-law was stupid and untalented, Vince would never waste his time on him. HHH has and always had talent and brains and that's why HHH is successful.
Well you can continue to bash HHH like you were doing.
