After his touching promo two weeks ago on Monday Night Raw, it looks as if Triple H has gone corporate.

Today, he was seen with fans minus one thing that helped his iconic persona...

His ponytail. 

TMZ broke the story today after pictures surfaced on the web featuring HHH posing for pictures with beloved WWE fans while in Connecticut at the Titan Tower. Triple H has never noticeably cut his hair while in the WWE, and unless this was an accidental encounter that forced Triple H to show off his new hair-do before next Monday, there is no other plausible reason for the drastic image change. 

Could this be Triple H making a transition from Attitude Era icon to corporate spearhead?

To me, the alarming part about HHH's change is not that he cut his hair, it is that he did it during what seemed to be just a pause in the storyline between himself and Brock Lesnar. I can't image seeing Triple H head to the ring ready to perform without his ponytail, and I can't possibly think of how this has anything to do with their storyline. At least the Undertaker announced that he would be changing his hair before his big reveal at WrestleMania 28 this past April. 

Perhaps on Monday we will find out more details about this change, or maybe we won't. 

Is Triple H finished with the wrestling stage? Has he officially embraced Hunter Hearst Helmsley, COO? Or shall I say, Paul  Levesque, COO?
