And i agree, Regal is a great GM. If Sandman won that over the top challenge for the next RAW GM (last year) then things wouldn't go as planned.
I never minded HHH, but its just his backstage powers that ran threw 2002 ****ed me off so much. If you are willing to read this I think you will too.
First of all, HHH returned around the 2002 RR time. He won the Rumble so he was going to the main event at Wrestlemania. This was really pointless in my opinion, as they could of had a Austin/Hogan or Rock/Hogan main event for the Undisputed title, but instead they have a Jericho/HHH... great. The weakest Wrestlemania title match in years, especially after WMX7. So HHH is put in the title hunt over Austin, Hogan, and the Rock, three of the biggest names in wrestling history. THAT speaks volumes. If it weren't for the non-title Rock/Hogan, WMX8 would have been one of the weakest, most thrown together Wrestlemania cards of all time that everyone would forget. Even Flair and Undertaker wouldn't have been able to save it.
Cosequently, HHH gets a title fun. Im honest about this, and I have nothing run with that. In the end Hogan beat him for it, but does not do it cleanly. However, when HHH and Hogan face each other to decide the number one contendor, HHH beats Hogan cleanly. I think this proves that if Hogan can not beat you cleanly, but you can beat him cleanly, you defintaly have backstage powers.
Also, thanks to this giant push, Austin is pushed out of the title scene and never gets a chance again and Hogan gets put in the tag team division with Edge. Then they try to hype HHH/HBK like it is the biggest feud in the centuary. Because of this Austin eventually walks out, Hogan disappears and The Rock goes to hollywood. THREE of the industrys biggest name wasted on HHH's superpush.
Lastly, and I think this is the biggest proof of evidence you will see... BROCK LESNAR. During Lesnars push, he went through such people as The Rock, Hogan and Undertaker. He was even supposed to go through Austin, but Austin walked out. So, why did HHH never have to face Lesnar? and when Lesnar is the WWE champion, they decide to split brands, and give HHH a new title.
2002 was basically a HHH fest which he didnt deserve.
Also more recently, why the hell has it got to be HHH the centre of attnetion. He may not win anything, but he hardly ever gets pinned or taps out. An example of this is Survivior Series. Has anyone else noticed that HHH is only ever eliminated when it falls down to the final one-on-one battle, and even then most the time he ends up winning. This makes him the centre of attention.
Next the Royal Rumble, since he has been getting his push in 2002, he has been in 3 Rumble matches, he won one, got to the final three only to be eliminated by the eventual winner and the final two where to be eliminated by the eventual winner. Once again he is the centre of attnetion.
Plus, Wrestlemanias. Since his WM debut at WM12, he has been in all of them except WM23. That is 12 Wrestlemanias. 8 of them have been for a title, 7 of them have been for a world title, 5 of them have been the main event. He may not win them all, but one again he has to be the centre of attention.
Lastly, the elimination chambers. He has been in 4, and once again had won 3. And in the won he didnt win, he was down to the final two. Once again not winning, but having to be the centre of attention.
HHH is, one of the most controversial superstars, probably eevr to be in wrestling. Other ones that pop to mind are Cena, Benit, Hogan and Goldberg. I have been going to to the PWB on Gamefaqs for a while now, and it is filled with smarks who will think the same or feel differntly. I just wanted to get my point across

If you watched RAW, Regal ordered a 'loser gets fired' match against Kennedy. As a result, Mr Regal lost.
