It was one thing in the Attitude Era to have guys like Vince McMahon on TV.
Vince was a "corporate guy" in WWE—his background was with the corporate side of things, and he just inserted himself onto television to help the product. Vince still thought from the perspective of a wrestling promoter about things—that is what he is and will always be, first and foremost.
Triple H, however? Not so much.
Triple H has been granted increasing levels of official power behind the scenes, while keeping himself at the forefront of WWE's televised product. He's still great on the mic, but he talks too much. Then there was Kevin Nash vs. Triple H. Can we not talk about that please?
Sin Cara is booked well in the ring, but can't have a long-term feud. That just stinks of being picked by a guy who knows in-ring psychology, but not proper storyline development to me. Who picked him as a new member of the roster? Triple H - a wrestler, not a promoter.
The other figure allowed too much control over their role is The Rock. He was allowed to stretch his feud with John Cena out for a year because films meant he was never able to appear week-to-week and build a proper program. How many other wrestlers could Cena have put over in that year long period? How much wrestling action could we have seen instead of those dozens of promos? How many storylines were disjointed because every time The Rock wanted to show up, Cena switched priorities?
