Triple H and Shawn Michaels are two of the least popular wrestlers in the WWE locker room these days, according to the Pro Wrestling Torch. Even superstars on the SmackDown brand with minimal exposure to them feel as though they are abusing their power and standing in the way of WWE elevating new stars.
The overwhelming sentiment among those in the company is that Raw is no man’s land” — there are no full-fledged pushes to be had as a result of the strong influence of Hunter and Michaels and the neverending Randy Orton and John Cena program.
Many feel that if you get on the wrong side of DX, they’ll badmouth you to management and you won’t be getting a push. Naturally, this has created an atmosphere of resentment and uneasiness backstage.
