But yeah I thought it was the right time for Triple H to turn at WMXV. I mean the fact his WM match was against Kane (even though they Wrestled each other in a steel cage not too long ago) means they really had nothing left for him to do as the leader of DX.
Of course the problem now is that as a heel it took Triple H awhile after he got his heel character right. I think things started to get together around the last few months of 1999.
I agree with your last sentence. I'm looking at this a couple of ways. First, it was a nice double turn by Chyna at WM. But here's where I kinda veer away from how good the turn was for Trips. It was hard to by hum as a badass heel the first month he was in the Corporation. He seemed like he was just a bodyguard of sorts for Shane. Then he slowly started to evolve into a darker character leading up towards Backlash, like cutting his hair a little bit, then sporting the shorter trunks. Once Rock was ousted and The Corporation merged with the Ministry, he really transformed into the Game. I still remember him beating the shit out of a casket that Rock was supposedly in. Still, the problem was that he was still playing a secondary role to the McMahons, Stone Cold, Rock, and Taker. He needed a reason to be on his own, and once he got into the title picture, then he separated himself from the rest of the pack. I believe that if Austin and Taker weren't going through injuries at the time, there's a chance the Trip probably wouldn't have gotten his first title run until after the New Year of 2000.
