#1: Austin 3:16 says it's your own fault!
In 1996, a young Triple H was making a name for himself.
Already a former Intercontinental Champion, Helmsley was impressing everyone with his work ethic and skills, and was set to receive a big push as the winner of the 1996 King of the Ring.
Then, the MSG Incident happened.
After finding out his Kliq buddies Scott Hall and Kevin Nash were leaving, the future COO hugged his friends goodbye in the world's most famous arena, alongside Shawn Michaels.
Shattering kayfabe, a punishment had to be dealt, and with the Showstopper untouchable as WWF Champion, and Hall and Nash gone, the blame fell on the Game.
Instead of winning the tournament (which he'd win a year later), Steve Austin became King, and delivered his infamous Austin 3:16 promo, changing wrestling forever.
