If Triple H ever returns for a WWE match, it can't be straight up against Brock Lesnar.
The Cerebral Assassin of course went up against the former UFC star at SummerSlam on Sunday night in what was one of the most anticipated matches of the past few months.
Let me just put this out there—it failed to follow through on the anticipation.
The big brutes went after each other from the start, and while the action was massive and at times impressive, it was repetitive and, after a while, far from entertaining.
Lesnar attacked Triple H's weak arm, Helmsley returned by going after the big man's ribs. Back and forth. Back. And. Forth. At times, it was painful at how predictable the action was.
In the end, not one, but two Pedigrees—that's another thing that really grinds my gears. Maybe I just want it to be the late 90's again, but since when does Triple H's signature move not finish someone off? Wasn't enough to put down Lesnar as he put in the Kimura Lock and forced HHH to tap out.
The match was unnatural, it was often boring, it was predictable and for whatever reason, it ended about 15 minutes early, leaving a painfully long, hard-to-watch-and-not-in-the-good-way exit by Triple H.
If that drawn out exit turns out to not be Helmsley's last straw, a match like this can't happen again.
The WWE can't keep breaking arms (yes, Triple H broke his arm again), it can't keep pitting these two monsters against each other. There's no energy and neither man has the chops to carry a main event match, regardless of how popular they are off the canvas.
If the feud does in fact continue, Shawn Michaels or the Undertaker need to get involved. They need to inject some sort of excitement inside the ring that was clearly lacking on Sunday night.
Or, you know, Lesnar and Triple H could just never fight each other again. That works, too.
