WWE is famous for its wild storylines and provocative content. It’s not uncommon for characters to participate in romantic programs as part of a storyline or character development. In professional wrestling, such scripted romantic moments can often turn into real-life flings with consequences beyond anyone’s expectations.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon’s relationship began as part of a WWE storyline in late 1999. At the time, Triple H was still dating fellow wrestler Chyna in real life. Chyna later accused The Game of cheating on her with Stephanie, revealing that she found out about his romance with Vince McMahon’s daughter when she came across a love note addressed to him.

In an interview with Howard Stern in 2000, Chyna praised Stephanie McMahon and encouraged her to “make out” with her boyfriend Triple H anytime. The Ninth Wonder of the World even gave The Game relationship advice to save his on-screen kayfabe marriage to Stephanie.

“I think she’s great. [You like her?] Yeah, very much. She can make out with my man anytime.” 


Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were married in 2003 and have been together ever since. Chyna and Triple H were together from 1996 to 2000 and during that time the former Women’s Champion was a prominent wrestler in the WWE. Chyna and Stephanie had a few spats during the time when the 9th Wonder Of The World was with The King Of Kings.

In 2003, Stephanie McMahon revealed during an interview with Howard Stern that Triple H had a real-life crush on her during the beginnings of their onscreen relationship.

Chyna’s former manager, Anthony Anzaldo, later publicly accused Triple H of cheating on her with Stephanie McMahon. The Game had a real-life crush on Stephanie during the beginning of their onscreen relationship and allegedly sabotaged Chyna’s wrestling career by trying to get her fired and by publicly degrading her.

Sadly, Chyna passed away on April 17th, 2016 from an overdose of alcohol, combined with anxiety drugs, sleeping aids, and painkillers. She is not around to tell her side of the story now or enjoy her time as a WWE Hall of Famer.
