Clique fans, welcome...
This site is dedicated to archiving interviews with and articles of five close friends- Shawn Michaels, Paul Michael Levesque (Triple H), Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman- known collectively in professional wrestling as "The Clique". Wrestling "insiders" (the term is used loosely) have been quick to write off the Clique as a disruptive group, formerly damaging to locker room morale and forever politicking and conniving. This is all a matter of opinion. What cannot be denied is that these five men are and were five of the most passionately devoted to the wrestling business in its history. To be able to see this clearly, all one must do is read some of their own words. Each of these five men has had numerous ups and downs throughout his career; each is a unique individual with a standout personality and sense of humor, and an unrivaled love for the pro wrestling business. My purpose in creating this site is to bring together as many interviews and articles as possible delving into the minds and lives of these five fascinating men, from whom there is so much to learn not only about the wrestling business, but life itself. If you are a fan of the Clique, or just a wrestling fan looking to learn more about the business, feel free to look around and absorb the words and wisdom of the most controversial and misunderstood group in wrestling history.
My other site
The majority of the interviews on this site, I've gathered and collected over the past few years. Some of these I've gotten from other sites such as Triple H Unleashed, Forever-Shawn, and Jacknife, and many of these I've taken the time to type up myself from various magazines and print-outs I have.

Just a tiny update today. Found a Shawn interview with IGN Sports from 1/28/2005 during a random Google search; it's been added to Shawn's 2005 section.

Back with my bi-yearly (or at least, that's how's it been lately) update of the archive. Added a new interview to Hunter's 2004 section; also added a 2005 section for Hunter, with five interviews. Added a new interview to Shawn's 2004 section, as well as a 2005 section for Shawn with an interview. Also added a 2005 section for Sean, with one interview. Back with more interviews whenever they pop up, and hopefully more frequently than the last two updates have been.

Wow, it's been ages since I've updated P&P. But, I'm back with a ton of new interviews. Added a new interview to the 2004 section for Kevin.
Added a new interview to the 2004 section for Shawn.
And, with it being Hunter's big month, I've got 7 new interviews, 1 for his 2003 section (the complete 5/03 Raw mag interview, thanks to Angy ^_^), and 6 for his 2004 section, all of which were conducted during this month. Enjoy! :)

Just popping in to add a new sister site (button-linked below), Lightning-Strikes, a Triple H promo archive recently opened by my dear friend Angy. ^_^

Wow, it's been awhile since I've updated here. Anyway, added two new interviews. One for Hunter: (Raw Mag 06/01) and one for Shawn: (Raw Mag 02/04). If updates are sparse from here-on out, it's because I'm currently back in college and don't have tons of free time to type up the remainder of my interviews. I'll work on them when I get the chance and they will be added eventually, though.

I noticed that the Shawn Michaels: Beneath the Skin interview (1996) which I posted a few days ago was incomplete- about three pages were missing. So, I've typed up the missing parts, and now the interview is in its entirety. Sorry for the screw-up.
Also, added an affiliate: Heart-breaker.net.
