I don't think Wolfhelm is referring to you.

As Rad says, that simply means TB is a different sort of character, with no greed or lust for power in him that the ring can corrupt. However, even if I accepted the argument that TB putting on the ring, laughing it off, and giving it back says something about his power (which I don't), the conclusion of that line of thinking would be that TB is more powerful than the ring, not necessarily more powerful than Sauron. After all, it was said that Sauron had to pour some of his power into the ring - not all, but some. How much we don't know: 10%, 25%, 50%?? So even if TB putting on the ring shows he was more powerful than the ring, that potentially only shows that he is more powerful than a portion of Sauron's power; TB could still come up short against what Sauron himself retained power-wise after the forging of the ring.
But again, this is all a silly exercise to begin with. I completely agree with Rad saying that when it comes to TB, the best we can do is to rule out what he is not.
