Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are without a doubt the biggest power couple to come out of WWE in the last 20 years.
Yes you’ve got Becky and Seth, Charlotte and Andrade, but neither of these couples come close to the level that Trips and Steph are on.
Triple H appeared on Ariel Helwani’s show this past week, and was asked what he would be doing had he never met and married Stephanie.
“It’s a funny thing because long before I ever met Steph I had a very strong fascination with the behind the scenes of the business and it’s how I started working with Vince behind the scenes being involved in some creative years ago smack dab in the beginning of the Attitude Era. I had never even met Steph at that point. He and I were working creatively when a bunch of writers left us and Vince was kind of doing everything solo. He kind of tagged me in to help him in a manner and riff ideas off and bounce ideas off of and then I started sitting in production meetings and it became more and more my involvement. Even for stuff that had zero to do with me, which I tended to prefer. I didn’t like to weigh on the stuff that had to do with me nearly as much because I felt like it was wrong to do and your vision can get warped in that but to weigh in on other people’s things and to weigh in on other shows, I was always as fascinated with that side of the business.”
He explained he was fascinated with the behind the scenes aspect of the wrestling business, even during his time as a rookie.
“I’d like to think that in some manner I’d be doing the exact same thing from a behind the scenes standpoint. My relationship with Steph I think it’s the best thing that ever happened to me from a standpoint of my wife and kids and everything else so every aspect of my life would be different. But from a business standpoint, I like to think I’d be doing the same thing because of the relationship that I had with Vince and the creative relationship that we had long before any of that.”
He added that he and Stephanie work well as a pair because they both understand their limitations, and can work together to help each other.
