• Bruce Prichard Reveals When He Got The Hint That Triple H & Stephanie McMahon Were Together For Real
During an episode of Something To Wrestle, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard (a.k.a Brother Love) talked about the time he got the hint that Triple H & Stephanie McMahon were together for real.
Below is what Bruce said:
“Nobody knows the timeline except for Triple H and Stephanie. Nobody really knows the timeline. I can go back to New Year’s 2000 where there was a big party at Vince’s house where Stephanie was there with her boyfriend, a really nice guy and so forth. That went on through WrestleMania 2000 that year and then you really didn’t hear too much about her boyfriend at that time, so let’s fast forward to January of 2001.
Gerald Brisco and I had this thing where we would sit back and we would watch people, I am a people watcher and I like to kind of observe things. We would see two people hanging around and catch them on the road sometimes and think, oh boy, that is going to turn into a couple right there. We had a term for it, which was Vince McMahon’s term. Vince would say that ‘he had worked himself into a shoot,’ so we used the same term here.
We are watching everything go on in rehearsals and they had to kiss on-screen and had to be husband and wife on-screen and it’s like, man, if he isn’t careful he is going to work himself into a shoot here. That was probably January 2001 when I first noticed it.
I knew it during the first XFL game in February 2001 that I knew they were together because it was something Stephanie said to me about something I said to Triple H and it was just how she said it to me. So, I knew, okay, they are together because she wouldn’t defend it like that if – it was just intuition the best way I can describe it.”
