FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
Man, this was SIMPLE. I never knew how much Triple H never wrestled. Well, it's back to the grindstone tommorow with Kurt Angle. That'll be fun.
MATCH BY MATCH
Nov 2: Lost to Chris Benoit by pinfall
2. One five people defeated Triple H cleanly in single matches this year: Undertaker, Kane, Kurt Angle (3), Chris Benoit, and Jeff Hardy. Note that none of those names is Chris Jericho.
3. Even before the injury, Triple H sure took a lot of time off. How ironic that falling to your death in a car could be the THIRD worst injury on your menu this year.
OVERALL RECORD: 12 wins, 14 losses, 3 no contests (This is actually a shocker to me.)
CLEAN LOSSES IN WHICH HHH WAS PINNED: 7
BEST MONTH: March 2001 (2-1-0)
WORST MONTH: May 2001 (1-4-0)
LEAST ACTIVE MONTHS: June - October
TAG TEAM PARTNER OF CHOICE: Steve Austin (6 matches; 2-4-0)
OVERALL TAG TEAM RECORD: 5-5-1
Awards to think about Triple H in.
BEST TAG TEAM: When any two huge stars form a tag team, you have to assume that they'll hold the titles at some point. The two man power trip did just that, winning the titles at Backlash.
BEST HEEL: After reveling himself as the man who planned the act of running Steve Austin over with a car, Triple H became one of the biggest heels ever. With his trusty (hehe...trusty) sledgehammer at his side, no face is safe.
BEST WORKER: Triple H has quickly become one of the best workers inside the ring. He uses a whole bunch of different moves to concentrate on a specific part of his opponent. He also does have a number of painful submission moves, despite not getting a submission win this year. They don't call him the Cerebral Assassin for nothing.
BEST TECHNICAL WRESTLER: See above.
BEST BRAWLER: Beside torturing his opponent in the ring, Trips sometimes takes his opponent to the outside and bashes them with a chair, bell, sledgehammer, or whatever the hell is lying around. You really don't want to be outside of the ring with him.
MOST FAVORITE WRESTLER: Looking at the sheer number of people who wore Triple H's shirts this year you have to notice that people just flat out like the guy. I mean, look at the flashes go off in his entrance. It's incredible.
BEST MOVE: Triple H's pedigree is still one of the best finishers out there today. When he puts the move in, it's all over. Except for Mick Foley, who thankfully isn't here to kick out of it anymore. THAT NO-SELLING BASTARD!
BEST MATCH: There was the tag team title match the day after Judgment Day, but I'll cover that more when I go over Jericho. But HHH's best match (IMO) of the year had to be at the PPV No Way Out. It was a two out of three falls match with a street fight and a cage thrown in as well against Steve Austin. Both men brought all they had that night. Pick up a copy of the tape if you can.
BEST FEUD: Before becoming buddies and tagging with him, Triple H HATED Steve Austin. And vice versa. I mean, Austin tried to KILL Triple H. I mean, that's gotta be worth SOMETHING, right?
WORST MATCH: I don't know where to place the match at Survivor Series. I go deeper into it later, but for my money any PPV main event where there's no winner is a big FU in my book. Then again, his match with Kane at Judgment Day had a finish, but wasn't that good either.
MOST DISAPPOINTING NEWS ITEM: Triple H was injured in the huge tag match in May and had to get surgery. He really has been missed recently.
WORST ANGLE: At Survivor Series, Triple was KILLED. Or something. Actually, the announced actually tried to make you believe that he would never wrestle again. It was THAT bad. Oh wait, but then he showed up on TV the next week. Sigh.
