Triple Hcredit score: wwe.com
Don’t name it a comeback; they have been right here for years.
Triple H and Kurt Angle are as soon as once more again within the ring however this time they’re on the identical aspect. They will lead Team Raw towards Team SmackDown Live in a conventional five-on-five elimination match on the Survivor Series. The November 19 epic will pit each of WWE’s prime manufacturers towards one another in a battle of supremacy, and the 2 WWE icons will get up for Monday Night Raw.
But that is undoubtedly an uneasy alliance.
Fans knew it was solely a matter of time till The Game returned to the ring. The former 14-time world champion has at all times been round in fact, however has not been a full time presence on Raw since his loss at WrestleMania on April 2.
The finish to that match solid severe doubt as to Hunter’s future within the ring. It wasn’t as if he could not nonetheless go and it wasn’t as if he had misplaced a step. But from a storyline perspective, Triple H had been shot down in flames.
The Game has not gained a televised one-on-one match since 2016 and his final Mania win got here in 2015. Hunter put Roman Reigns over at WrestleMania 32 in 2016, thus cementing The Big Dog’s prime man standing. The similar will be mentioned of Triple H’s match with Rollins at WrestleMania 33. It was apparent that The Game had moved on and had reached a time in his profession when he was higher used to place over rising expertise.
Of course that expertise needed to earn it; The Game by no means handed something to any opponent.
So if his reign of dominance within the ring had come to an finish, then Hunter’s subsequent logical step was to rebadert his place of authority within the firm. That’s the place followers now discover him as WWE strikes to Survivor Series.
When Triple H’s music hit on the November 13 version of Raw, the gang exploded. His return could have been sudden, however his timing couldn’t have been higher.
Kurt Angle needed to pull the plug on his storyline son Jason Jordan’s positioning as a member of Team Raw. Jordan had been injured earlier within the evening by Bray Wyatt and was clearly in no situation to compete simply six days later at Survivor Series.
Enter Triple H, who determined to take management of the scenario and Pedigree an emotional Jordan. The Game inserted himself into Team Raw and followers couldn’t have been happier. But did they pop over the announcement as a result of they authorized of Hunter’s inclusion, or Jordan’s removing?
Once the joy dissipated, followers absolutely started to marvel what was going to occur. Triple H remains to be coming off like a heel, which suggests he is not again to place smiles on followers’ faces. He’s nonetheless the tyrannical authority determine and meaning he does not care about doing the suitable factor.
He cares about doing what’s finest for enterprise, which suggests he should stroke his personal ego.
The Cerebral Assbadin lives as much as his nickname in additional methods than one and there is not any motive to consider that may change now. Just as a result of he is siding with Angle doesn’t imply they’ll come out on good phrases after the Survivor Series is over.
After all if Team Raw loses, Angle loses his job as General Manager.
Triple H @TripleH
Things simply received fascinating…
#SurvivorSeries is LIVE this Sunday ONLY on @WWENetwork.
Hunter has nothing to achieve from even working alongside Team Raw; he is over each manufacturers. Even from a storyline perspective, this transfer is not sensible. Triple H should not care which model wins or loses, as a result of he has an curiosity in each. The widespread denominator on this equation is Stephanie McMahon, whose affect doubtless introduced The Game again to the ring.
The civil conflict between her and brother Shane by no means appears to finish.
Fans ought to anticipate Hunter to attempt to take management early. He will name the photographs through the match and try and level Team Raw in the suitable path. Triple H’s ego is not going to permit him to take a backseat to Angle, or anybody else.
The friction between the 2 will likely be obvious and it will likely be an issue.
Triple H could also be a part of the McMahon feud, however he is not the one one on Team Raw that has household points.
Kurt Angle’s storyline with Jason Jordan has developed a brand new twist. For the primary time, Jordan tried to capitalize on his relationship with Angle and that was absolutely not misplaced on the followers. From the second teary-eyed Jordan begged his father to not pull him from the Survivor Series match, the seed was certainly planted.
Will Jordan go heel and have an effect on the match’s end result at Survivor Series?
Nothing is for sure in fact however now the specter of Jordan’s doable involvement is looming over the occasion. If Jordan makes an look and prices Team Raw the win, then Angle loses his job as General Manager. It may very well be candy revenge for Jordan, who noticed his dream spot stolen from him by Triple H.
Therein lays the most important drawback with Angle and Hunter’s shaky partnership at Survivor Series.
At some level, Angle should cease performing like a fearful GM and begin performing like a father. He stood by and watched his son get laid out by some of the despicable heels WWE has ever seen. He watched and he did nothing to cease it.
What if Angle himself prices Team Raw the win at Survivor Series?

Angle may determine that household is extra necessary than enterprise and activate The Game through the match. The swerve may come at a really essential time, when the match had reached a disaster level. Angle’s actions may trigger Team Raw to lose and the final phrases from him may very well be to a susceptible Triple H on the mat.
You haven’t got to fireside me, I give up!
Despite whether or not or not Angle will step up for Jordan, followers ought to anticipate the Olympic Gold Medalist to return out swinging at Survivor Series. Angle did not actually get an opportunity to point out off at TLC when he teamed with The Shield, so this may very well be the right time for him to shine.
But the friction between him and Hunter will likely be apparent. Angle could even win the match for his workforce after which lay Hunter out after the bell rings. Either approach, the sudden warmth between the 2 males could result in one thing extra down the street.
Triple H versus Kurt Angle will be the subsequent large match for each legends.
