• Jim Ross On The Rumor Of Triple H Believing That A Girl Won’t Leave Him For Kurt Angle
While speaking on Grilling JR, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross discussed the love triangle storyline between Triple H, Kurt Angle and Stephanie McMahon in 2000, and rumor of Triple H ending that storyline because he thought that he girl leaving him for Angle wasn’t believable.
Below is what JR said:
“If Triple H made that statement, it’s completely out of his wheelhouse. Because that statement itself is so stupid. Triple H isn’t a stupid guy. So, I don’t believe that. I never heard that on any authority.
That match – those guys are so good, either guy could’ve gone over and it was still gonna be a great match and a good outcome. The match itself was gonna be outstanding, but I have a hard time believing that.
Kurt had great respect for everyone there and he was really coming into his own as that entertaining character. Because he’d already proven he was a badass. And that’s the thing, quite frankly, I used to have some issues on Kurt with that because I thought sometimes he acted too silly and acted too dumb. Dumb jock – the Cowboy hat thing with Austin and things of that nature.
I liked the badass. I liked the Kurt Angle that was the Olympic gold medalist that could whoop anybody’s a$$ in the building and people knew that. I could’ve watched Kurt Angle and Triple H wrestle every week and it wouldn’t have bothered me a bit because I loved their chemistry and they were true to the business and they told great stories.”
