Triple H Discusses the Attitude Era, His Marriage to Stephanie McMahon
– Triple H spoke about the Attitude Era during an interview with Forbes.com.
“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 voice overs 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.”
When asked what keeps the “fire burning” in his marriage with Stephanie, “What keeps afire burning? A big log. It keeps the fire burning”, said Triple H.
Stephanie McMahon stated that Triple H “almost defined the Attitude Era.” Triple H discussed his wife watching his matches.
“It’s funny because she knows me so well that she sees the smallest little things in there and when I come back she’ll be like, ‘Then this happened,'” he said. “She knows all the little intricacies of everything we do and knows me so well that she can see it whether I’m hurt or not hurt. She’ll be watching almost more intently than anybody.”
