The shocking similarities between Mr. McMahon’s Corporation and Triple H’s Authority

The story remains the same: A WWE power figure ascends to a position of command and moves to enforce their will upon the entirety of the WWE locker room and Universe. To back their regime up, they surround themselves with a war council of suits and Superstars alike, and set their dogs (or Hounds) on anyone who opposes them. Loved by a precious few, hated by very many and feared by almost all, these power-mad dictators take total control and mold the squared circle in their own image.
