The WWE is all about creating believable content despite everyone knowing it is all a story.

The Triple H broken arm angle is not selling—it's falling apart.

After Brock Lesnar attacked Triple H, it would have seemed like a good idea to make it appear as though Triple H was healing.

When Triple H is seen all around Las Vegas however and does not even appear at WWE Raw, it looks pretty bad for the storyline.

Most of the time, the WWE can get away with these angles because they sell them well. This was not sold at all however.

It was imperative that Triple H show up on Raw with the same brace that he was seen wearing in Vegas. He needed to show people that he was able to still function and go about his business with the injury.

Having pictures relayed from Michael Cole is not the way to show fans that he's still doing his daily tasks.

Making an appearance is the way to show that.

The least they could have done was put Triple H in hiding for a week or wait until after the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight to "break" his arm.

He had not been around since WrestleMania anyways, so why was it necessary to have all of this happen when the WWE knew that he was going to be making public appearances in the upcoming week.

It all seems like it could have been put on hold one more week in order to try to sell it a bit better.


Either way, Triple H and his broken arm are not being taken seriously by most fans because the WWE is not selling it correctly.

We take what happens in the WWE with a grain of salt; we do not overanalyze, taking what we're given. 

What the WWE fans were given was Triple H making too many public appearances merely days after suffering this injury. This resulted in many fans becoming skeptics because they were being fed too much of Triple H having a good time.

We want to believe the storyline, but we don't want to have go out of the way to believe it.
