WWE have found themselves, more often than not, in the limelight for some pretty rough reasons and obvious not-so-great looks. Of those who like to bury other wrestlers, Triple H is surely one of them.
Triple H gained massive fame after co-founding the iconic D-Generation X stable alongside Shawn Michaels, becoming one of WWE’s biggest assets during the Attitude Era. Naturally, HBK needed to protect that spot.
What many are not too keen to admit is that Vince Russo, the head writer for WWE at the time, contributed immensely to the formation of DX and Triple H”s success. Recently, Russo recalled a moment from the Attitude Era he saw Triple H’s ego act up.
What sparked Vince feeling Triple H’s ego act up was when he noticed that Triple H refused to do the job to D-Lo Brown.
At the time, D-Lo had a decent buzz around him. He was talented in the ring as well as having a solid fanbase around him, but none-the-less, Triple H felt he was more important.
Vince Russo recently opened up on the Wrestling Outlaw podcast, where he looked back to the time when Triple H refused to lose to D’Lo Brown during the Attitude Era. He added that it was the first and only time he saw the selfish side of The Game.
He said: “I got hot at Triple H one time because he wouldn’t return a favor and do a job to D’Lo Brown. And I basically said to him, ‘Are you freaking kidding me bro? All the times he has laid down for you, you’re not gonna return the favor?’ That was the one and only time when I saw a selfish side of Triple H. I don’t know the Triple H with power. So, it’s hard for me to say,”
At the time, Triple H was just on the roster and not in any really high up control.
