Triple H has often been paired with a shovel. The idea of him burying talent backstage for his own benefit became a popular topic, and now some stories are being confirmed.
During Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke about how Triple H treated some of the other talent in WWE, especially Chris Jericho. JR said that Triple H knew he didn’t have the charisma as Y2J, so he buried him for being shorter.
“The Jericho thing was, I believe, quite simply that Jericho had a load of charisma, naturally, that Hunter [Triple H] may not have had at that point in time, and the fact that Jericho was under six feet tall,” Ross said. “It’s petty bullsh*t.”
He later stated that it was a shame that Triple H treated the situation like he did. Guys like Chris Jericho and Booker T were treated like they didn’t belong instead.
“It was regrettable, especially when you’re talking about two guys like Booker T and Jericho who, really, you make yourself look bad by inferring that they don’t belong for whatever reason.”
Triple H is now in a very big position of power in WWE. He was able to use a beneficial situation and make it even better for himself as the years went by. Now Chris Jericho is with AEW and far away from Triple H’s influence.
