• Stephanie McMahon On Triple H Dating A “Freaky Looking” Chyna, Chyna Being Mad At Her
In this flashback article, we take a look at Stephanie McMahon’s appearance on The Howard Stern Show back in the day.
Let’s take a look at the highlights from the part where Stephanie’s relationship with Triple H and Triple H dating Chyna before her was discussed:
Howard: You’ve always been involved with the WWE.
Robin: Did you ever try to do anything else?
Stephanie: I never wanted to do anything else really. I actually have worked for the company since I was about 12.
Robin: What did you do at 12? Which division did you run?
Stephanie: I was the receptionist actually for about two years.
Howard: So your dad always sort of brought you up to be in the family business, right?
Stephanie: Well, my dad always wanted us to have a job. And I really wanted to be in the family business. He left it up to us.
Howard: Dating Triple H, we had Chyna on the show. She’s furious with you. She said bad things about you. She said that you stole her man and that Triple H now is going to be your b*tch, this is just me paraphrasing, and if Triple H doesn’t do what Stephanie McMahon wants him to do, that’ll be the end of his career. So he has to mind his P’s and Q’s. Is any of that true?
Stephanie: Well, I’m sure certainly from her point of view I’m the b*tch of the whole scenario.
Howard: Because you stole her man? Wasn’t it easy to do because you look like a woman?
Stephanie: You know, things just sort of happened there and you know there’s always a lot of sides to every story. But, definitely it is a big deal for Triple H to date me because in a way she’s right.
I mean not that my father would necessarily fire someone for doing something to me, but I’m sure it would come into play. Like if he cheated on me and I was heartbroken over it, I’m his daughter and he wouldn’t fire him but it wouldn’t be a good situation.
Howard: It’s dangerous in a way for him to date you, isn’t it?
Stephanie: It was a big deal. It’s a really hard decision for both of us to make. More so for him, I think.
Howard: But you were so attracted to him because he’s very muscular and manly?
Stephanie: I just was attracted to him in every way.
Howard: Did you think he was a freak because Chyna’s very freaky looking.
Stephanie: I actually have always thought that Chyna was pretty incredible.
Howard: Yeah, but not beautiful?
Stephanie: I do think she’s beautiful, but I grew up in a world of bodybuilding and…
Howard: Wait a second, don’t you think a guy who goes out with like a she-man, he’s like a fetishist?
Stephanie: I didn’t. I actually thought it was pretty cool that he didn’t care what other people thought about her. I mean he was in love with her.
Howard: But how did you get Triple H away from Chyna?
Stephanie: Well, I mean he was in love with her at one time. But by the time I came around, things weren’t so good.
Robin: But they were still living together.
Stephanie: They were still living together and there’s a whole lot more detail that I’m not going to go into.
Howard: What happened? She wasn’t putting out?
Stephanie: (Laughing) I don’t know. That I didn’t even want to know. But by the time Triple H and I started our on-screen storyline, we just sort of had great chemistry and it just went from there.
Howard: So did you have your father write a storyline that would include you and Triple H together so you could get together with Triple H?
Stephanie: Actually no and I was dating somebody at the time who always thought that I had the hearts for Triple H, but I didn’t even realize that I did at the time and I thought, “No, God no!”
Howard: So how did the romance develop? You and Triple H were working together in close quarters. You have to rehearse a lot of the stuff that you do, a lot of the dialogue.
Stephanie: Right and we’re live and it’s very intense. And I have such an incredible passion for the business and so does Triple H and so he was teaching me actually a lot of the in-ring things that I didn’t know about and wanted to know and it just went.
Howard: Do you have a question why he’s with you?
Howard: You know he loves you?
Stephanie: Yeah, I think he does.
Robin: It never occurs to you that he wants to run everything?
Stephanie: Well, I mean of course that would probably be a great ultimate plan but if he screws it up, I mean he’s screwed.
