Triple H only lost cleanly to 13 different guys since 2001. The list doesn't include tags, three-ways where didn't physically lose but does include ones where did, as well as Survivor Series, Elimination Chamber and other matches where took a clean pin or submission. Five losses to Orton and Cena. Three to Batista, and two to the Undertaker, HBK, Benoit, Angle, and Goldberg. And once to Kane, Edge, Hogan, Flair, and Jeff Hardy.
I could careless considering how long it's been since I've watched wrestling, but it's definitely an interesting fact/number to think about nonetheless.
if anyone were to tell me that pinning Stephanie has nothing to do with his huge rate of success, i have to call them a fucking liar. nobody goes that long and only have 13 clean losses without having some major pull.
I'm not willing to put ALL of it on that. There's no doubt HHH has worked hard, but I think that working over his daughter didn't hurt any either. It's not like he's got a big bag of nothing, but yeah 13 clean losses is just insane.
that's really the main point, though. when you know you're as well connected as Triple H is, your odds of success typically goes up. you generally have a lot more pull on a job when you're in tight with a boss. i've seen it happen too many times on jobs to think that it doesn't happen.
