Triple H is arguably the most polarizing figure in wrestling history. Fans either seem to absolutely love him or despise what he represents. The infusion of the internet wrestling community with the world wide web growing started a new boom of wrestling rumors and stories being shared. Triple H may also be at the top of the list when it comes to the most scandalous and controversial stories about backstage gossip. Many wrestlers in the business and fans watching believe he has used, and in some cases, abused his power and influence within the WWE in negative ways.

There’s a large list of wrestlers who have negative things to say about him but it’s hard to decipher which are genuine. The New Age Outlaws had harsh words to share about their former D-Generation X leader when leaving WWE and filming shoot interviews but today both men have been re-hired and are once again friends with Triple H.
