It is time for the ColeFire Chat with Triple H. This week they talk about whether the match at TLC is the biggest match in WWE history. Hunter says the World Title was always held by Harley Race and Ric Flair, men who were known for wrestling in the ring. When he became the World Champion, it meant he was the best.
Michael brings up the fact that we are where we are today because of Hunter. Michael reminds Hunter that he was handed the World Title by Eric Bischoff. Hunter says that Bischoff did it because Brock Lesnar was the Undisputed Champion and he refused to defend against Hunter. By default that made him the champion and Eric did one of the few genius decisions and he made Hunter the World Champion. That title was the most prestigious at one time.
Michael brings up the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match at TLC. He wants to know if this is the biggest match in history. Hunter says that it is one of the biggest matches and probably the biggest of this generation. There will only be one champion. You will be â€˜THEâ€™ Champion. It will be a moment that will be remembered forever.
Hunter guarantees that we will have one champion after TLC and the King of Kings will crown the Champion of Champions.
