Hey guys. I'm new here and this is my first post in the forums. I have been coming to this site for quite a while and just now started actually interacting. Anyway, here is my question. I have been reading the blog comments and I was thinking about some of the comments that had been made there. Alot of people are bitching about the whole "Rock should have passed the torch to Cena the way that Hogan passed it to him" thing. Regardless of your opinion of what should have happened in the Rock/Cena match, I just thought it would be interesting to see if anyone really considers Triple H to have ever been "The Man". Most people consider Hogan, Hart, Michaels, Austin, Rock, Cena to have been the guy in their day, but never list The Game in their string of people who had ever had the proverbial torch.
All I'm saying is, more championship reigns than anyone in the history of the company, number four amongst wrestlers who competed in the last three decades in terms of combined days as champion, movie roles, merchandise, etc. The guy has done everything that anyone mentioned above has done and maybe more. So, what do you think? Was Hunter ever the guy? What qualifies one as being the guy, and who do you think were the torch bearers of the industry if your list differs from the common one listed above?
Anyway, just thought would throw that out there. Sorry if it is a worn out topic. Like I said, I'm new to the forums.
