Ever since that memorable turn of events at SummerSlam, Triple H has been running WWE programming and the WWE roster ragged—particularly the babyfaces.
With his partner in crime, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H has delighted in cutting the legs out from under popular stars like Daniel Bryan, The Big Show, Rob Van Dam and Dolph Ziggler. He has not once but twice stripped Bryan of the WWE Championship. He has given free reign to Orton and The Shield to stick their noses anywhere they want to because they epitomize his mantra: “What’s Best for Business.”
He and Stephanie have stripped Big Show’s character of any spine he had—and did so with big smiles on their faces.
Any star who speaks their mind about the direction of WWE under Triple H usually faces some rough consequences. More often than not, those consequences involve facing The Shield in some way, shape or form. All of those consequences wind up in a beatdown.
There is no sign of this plot letting up anytime soon. If that is the case, there are several WWE performers who will be playing some kind of significant role in the plot before it goes away.
Obviously, Bryan, Show, RVD and Ziggler will be able to avenge the treatment they have received from the Triple H regime. But there are others whose involvement has been nil or somewhat limited, and they should all have their moments in this plot.
Let’s take a look at who needs to weigh in.
