For the past 16+ years, Triple H has maintained his position at the top of the card no matter what it took. Which in a business such as professional wrestling isn't always going to be very pretty as we'll see here today. Whether it was Hunter wielding his power backstage or taking advantage of being with the boss' daughter knowing he can say whatever he wants to in front of a camera just to put someone else down. Like one of his theme song says, "It's all about the game and how you play it." And Triple H has long proven to be one of the best at playing this type of game.
It's no secret that ever since his days of being with The Kliq, Hunter has been slightly over protective of his spot on the card but sometimes he takes things a little too far. More often than not he's used whatever sway he has backstage to keep people down that didn't really need his help, if Triple H just kept doing his thing he would be safe from the likes of Billy Gunn and Chris Masters which makes it that much more juvenile that Hunter would go out of his way to insult or influence booking decisions to make sure they stayed in their place.
None of this is to say that Triple H isn't a great wrestler because I think he is, but he's also one of the most immature and selfish people the WWE has ever seen. Despite what his current character may be, Hunter has shown time and time again that he's an insecure, jealous, vengeful type that will do everything in his power to make sure that the spotlight is on him 100 percent of the time, while ideally no one else even gets a sliver of it. Triple H knows it's lonely at the top of the mountain, especially when you're the king of kings sitting on your throne made of the skeletons of other wrestler's careers.

Lillian Garcia is one of the most respected and revered employees on the WWE roster, but that doesn't stop someone like Triple H from making an insult you'd here on a middle school playground in front of millions of people. Hunter took a backstage insult going around about Garcia having a "horse face" and made a quip about Lillian "horsing around" during her last appearance. Mick Foley summed it up best when he said:

1 Holding Down CM Punk
The history of Triple H being a jerk to CM Punk stretches back even further than a lot of people realize, all the way back to Punk's tryout match with the WWE. During that match Triple H was watching along with Shawn Michaels and Arn Anderson with the trio ripping the young guy giving his heart out in the ring to impress WWE officials. Luckily the raw talent of CM Punk led to him getting a job with the company, but Hunter was always waiting in the wings for his next chance to strike down the Straight Edge Savior. That time came during the Summer of Punk angle, when The Second City Saint finally dethroned John Cena for the title and was surely on his way to being the number one face in the company, only for Hunter to come out of retirement just to defeat CM Punk, then slink back into retirement having done the job.
