The legacy of Triple H is ultimately a confusing one. There are few who would disagree that at his peak, he may have been the absolute best wrestler on the planet for an extended period of time, having spectacular matches with anyone you could name. In addition, once he moved into semi-retirement and became deeply involved in the business side of WWE, he became lauded for his work with projects such as the NXT developmental program. However, there were also portions of his career where he pretty much openly used his backstage power to further his career at the expense of other talented wrestlers, which earned him an incredible amount of ire among sections of the fanbase. Ultimately, while Triple H is undoubtedly a legendary figure in the wrestling business, he may never truly get the full recognition of how good he really was over his career. So, we’re aiming to change that perception for the better, with this list of the absolute best matches (and there were many) of Triple H’s long and legendary wrestling career.
15. vs Taka Michinoku, Raw, 2000
For all the (somewhat legitimate) negativity people began throwing at Triple H in the latter stages of his career, there was an extended period in 2000-2001 where he probably had a really good claim on being the best wrestler in the world. Suffice to say, you’ll see a lot of his work from that time frame on this list, starting with this completely unexpected classic match that many people point to when they talk about how absolutely on fire Triple H was as a worker at the time. What looked like a complete squash match against talented but horribly underutilized Japanese wrestler Taka Michinoku ended up as a ridiculously great match, where even though Taka never truly had a chance of winning, the match was so well wrestled and had just enough outside influences that at several points, it actually seemed like he might upset the WWE Champion. This was the match which opened a lot of people’s eyes to Triple H’s strong wrestling abilities even when he wasn’t working with similarly high-level opponents.http://www.accelerator3359.com/Wrestling/bios/michinoku.html Source: accelerator3359.com
