• Triple H Didn’t Intentionally Mess Up His 2003 Feud, Says Jim Ross

During their 2003 rivalry, then World Heavyweight Champion Triple H defended his title against WCW Legend ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner at the WWE Royal Rumble 2003 & No Way Out 2003 pay-per-views.

While Scott managed to defeat The Game via DQ at the Rumble, Triple H got the win at No Way Out, after Evolution interfered in the match.

None of the two matches received any positive reviews, especially their first match at the Rumble PPV was rated pretty bad by most critics.

During an episode of his ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, Jim Ross revealed that Triple H would never have a bad match on purpose, so he can not be blamed for the chemistry just not being there in any of his matches with Steiner.

Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer said when he was asked whether Hunter messed up his feud with Scott on purpose or not:

“No, hell no. Triple H is not gonna go out there and have a stinker on purpose. No. It’s gonna sound bad, he’s a professional.

His ego, and I say that in a good way, he’s got a lot of pride, he’s not gonna go out there and stink up the joint on purpose.”
