Many consider Triple H a legend in the pro wrestling world and is one of the most important figures in the company’s history. He was an integral part of the Attitude Era. His career spanned several World Title reigns and memorable moments throughout the years. 

Triple H is also infamous for burying fellow pro wrestlers and there are multiple instances of that taking place, even as early as his DX days. It was said that he even refused to put over D’Lo Brown during an important feud.

Unsurprisingly, Triple H wasn’t always the most popular star backstage in WWE, especially during the height of his career. While speaking on his podcast Grilling JR, Jim Ross explained that Triple H delving into politics backstage in WWE didn’t do him much good when it came to backstage popularity.

”I knew Triple H was going to be a star and if you could not figure that out, you were just being unobjective and being a typical paranoid wrestler. Hunter was going to take some spots because he was willing to put in the work to see that that got done. Some of his mannerisms and how he navigated the political waters were not widely accepted by a lot of people in the back that Triple H’s power base affected.”

Triple H will remain an integral part of WWE television and the inner workings of the company and that is something his critics will have to accept. We will have to wait and see when The King Of Kings will make his return to the company as it is unlikely he will ever leave WWE.
