It would not be easy to be dating the daughter of your boss. With sideways looks from your peers, criticism from fans, and putting your career in jeopardy should something go wrong, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon’s relationship brought a unique sort of stress.
Now, Triple H has opened up about asking The Undertaker for advice about his relationship. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, The Game talked about seeking advice from The Undertaker while others were critical. Here is the quote:
“When I was dating Steph, and people were just starting to find out, Taker was one of the people I saw for counsel. A lot of people were very critical of it, but he was a steady, trusted voice. That’s really what he’s always been for me.”
“That’s where we always were, so it made the most sense to me to ask there. I pulled him aside and said, ‘We have a wedding coming up, and I’d be honored if you’d be one of my groomsmen.’ The only people I thought of asking were the people I thought of [as] brothers to me, and the majority of those people are from this business. This is my life, and he’s like a brother to Steph, too. The Undertaker is larger than life, and you can feel that presence in the ring. But there is also the human being, and I’ll always treasure our friendship,”
Triple H and The Undertaker had a number of major clashes in the years that followed the wedding. The biggest and most memorable were their two WrestleMania battles in 2011 and 2012 where Undertaker extended his streak to 20-0.
