Ask Chris Jericho what he thought about Triple H before the May 21, 2001 edition of Raw Is War, and it may have been somewhat different to his feelings afterwards. 

During a routine tag-team bout pitting Jericho and Chris Benoit against Triple H and Steve Austin, 'The Game' landed awkwardly upon striking Jericho from behind. Tearing his quadriceps muscle in one leg, Triple H promptly hit the mat in complete agony, the muscle literally rolling up his limb.

To his credit, the man was somehow able to finish the match. Perched atop the announce desk, he even received Y2J's trademark 'Walls Of Jericho' finishing hold, which must have been excruciatingly painful to absorb. 

Many times since, Jericho has said he gained a new level of respect for his peer that evening, but the injury would come at a cost. Triple H was benched for quite some time, only able to return in early-January, 2002. 

This week's article features a story from the man himself, including his thoughts and feelings as he stood behind the curtain before his big MSG comeback. There are also facts and stories related to the likes of Sable and Luna Vachon, The Honky Tonk Man and the current WWE Diva's division as a whole.

A truly eclectic mix of wrestling facts we didn't know last week, this week!
