Considering the fact the guy would probably be a bouncer in some sleaze bar if he wasn't a pro wrestler & married to Stephanie McMahon.

My mind is absolutely clear. He got the big push over others because he is married to Stephanie. You doubt that?

I think he was getting a upper-card push, but I suppose Triple H wouldn't have been as successful if he wasn't married to a McMahon.

Well, he was the HWC for a long, long time. You can't say it was his talent that kept him on top. He is Vince's Son In Law.

Bret Hart, in his book, mentions that HHH was on the booking team in *1997*, WELL before he started dating Stephanie, which was in 2000. He also won his first WWF title in 1999.

Point is I don't think dating, than marrying, Stephanie got him his push, but if anything it has cemented his status with the company.
We'll be back. You'll see.

Being a part of that "klique" helps.

That too, although HHH was probably the least-pushed of the Clique during it's prime days of '94-'96. Remember, from his debut in 1995, he spent much of his time in Hog Pen Matches with Henry Godwinn, and his first WrestleMania resulted in a squash by Ultimate Warrior.

Then came the infamous MSG Curtain Call incident, where HHH was the only guy punished. He was pretty much spinning his wheels through the rest of 1996, losing every PPV match. Wasn't until very-early 1997 with the Goldust feud and the introduction of Chyna that HHH started winning again. Then came the King Of The Ring win, the feud with Mick Foley, the introduction of DX, and Montreal, which is well-documented that HHH had a part of. Of course, DX and that was largely due to being friends with Michaels, so you can credit the Clique for that. The rest is history.

Tell me about the Madison Square Garden Curtain incident, please... But let's take it back to the WWE thread.

Now I know how big the salaries of these pro and superstar wrestler. However, sometime this kind of sports is too risky actually.
