Why do viewers buy the myth that Triple H put himself over, hogged the spotlight and only got where he is because of Stephanie McMahon?

Triple H was already a major player for the WWE Intercontinental championship against The Rock, in what The Rock has referred to as some of the best matches of his career and what put him in the spotlight going forward, HHH had also already been part of D-Generation-X and 'The Game' won the WWE championship... show more Triple H was already a major player for the WWE Intercontinental championship against The Rock, in what The Rock has referred to as some of the best matches of his career and what put him in the spotlight going forward, HHH had also already been part of D-Generation-X and 'The Game' won the WWE championship in 1999 all before he started dating Stephanie McMahon after they were paired together for a story line in 2000.

Triple H also put over the likes of AJ Styles, Batista, Booker T. [whether people want to accept it or not], Brock Lesnar, Chris Benoit, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, The Rock, Goldberg, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Karl Anderson, Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, Luke Gallows, Mick Foley, Owen Hart, Ric Flair, Roman Reigns, Ronda Rousey, Seth Rollins, Shawn Michaels, Sheamus, Steve Austin and The Undertaker to name a few.

So no Triple H wasn't a 'jabroni' who puts himself over, hogged the spotlight and only got pushed because he married Stephanie McMahon.

In my opinion The Cerebral Assassin much like the person who trained him Killer Kowalski will go down as the greatest most recognizable heel of a generation if not THE greatest heel in professional wrestling history.
Update: Yet Booker T. became one of the most recognizable baby faces after the Wrestlemania he had with Triple H and HHH heel heat skyrocketed when he won. Perfect case of not having to win to go over. Revisionist history Sheamus took Triple H out and won the WWE championship, then Triple H returned to take out Sheamus... show more Yet Booker T. became one of the most recognizable baby faces after the Wrestlemania he had with Triple H and HHH heel heat skyrocketed when he won.
