WWE Superstar Triple H And Stephanie McMahon Explain What Keeps Their Fire Burning
I’ve always been a fan of Before Triple H, long before he became wrestling royalty by marrying Stephanie McMahon and helping to run the business side of World Wrestling Entertainment. “The Game,” as he has been called in the ring, had long hair and an intro that included spraying water from his mouth at each of the four ring posts. A good part of professional wrestling is the show, and Triple H is a great showman.
He’s also one of the big names behind the Attitude Era transition that has made WWE so popular today. That era, which also saw Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson rise to prominence along with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, is the heart of THQ’s WWE 13 video game campaign, which is called the Attitude Era and features actual video from that time along with new voice recordings from the main wrestlers to bring the key matches back to life virtually.
“It’s one of those things — I’ve talked about this with Austin and a little bit with Rock, too — you don’t realize is happening at the time; it’s just what you’re doing,” said Triple H. “We were all so wrapped up in what we were doing, and it was so competitive with each other. It’s only now that I think we can look back and go, ‘Wow. That was a pretty special time, and we shared some pretty special things all together and made history.’ I think at the time you’re doing it, you realize it’s going well, but you’re just so deep in there that you can’t even fathom really what you’re doing. To look back at it now and see all those times, and to watch the video game…when we did the voiceovers to the video game, to go back and watch some of those scenes take place, it’s crazy because you forget what a…that was just another day then.”
