Quotes

Max Landis: An important thing to remember about Triple H is that he views himself when he looks in the mirror as this warrior knight Conan destroyer super badass unstoppable guy. The fact that he's actually an insecure, cheating, undercutting, manipulative coward, he's kind of blind to. He can't see it, and that's why when The Undertaker beats him, all Triple H can think about is...

Excellent analysis of one great aspect of professional wrestling.
10 June 2015 | by ryansmorrisSee all my reviews

Not really much else to say, Max Landis has analysed the character of Triple H in such a way that anyone, wrestling fan or not, could understand. Wrestling Isn't Wrestling shows the progression from HHH's career beginnings as the Connecticut Blueblood, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, and progressing through DX, evil DX, Evolution, his final years as a full-time wrestler and now, in the Authority. The representations of all male wrestlers as females (and Chyna as a male) is one of the things that makes Wrestling Isn't Wrestling unique. Overall I really enjoyed it, as did my friends, most of whom aren't wrestling fans. Definitely worth a watch.
