Stephanie McMahon stole the headlines when she was installed as interim WWE CEO, but rumours have also surfaced as to the state of her marriage to Triple H.
The wrestling world was stunned when news broke that Vince McMahon was stepping back from his role as WWE Chairman and CEO while an investigation into misconduct allegations was carried out.
Stephanie McMahon was named as her father’s interim replacement and with the spotlight squarely on the former Chief Brand Officer, rumours began to creep in online that suggested there were severe problems in McMahon’s marriage to WWE icon, Triple H.
PWTorch’s Wade Keller has commented on those stories, debunking the idea that there are any problems between the couple as a myth:
“I know when Hunter had his health problems, and then Stephanie stepped aside there were, I don’t wanna say rumors because that’s overstating it. [There was] conjecture that maybe there were marital issues that they were dealing with. I’m told that’s just flat out not the case and that they are a team.”
“Triple H works full time, he’s a talent scout, but Stephanie stepped away and they reduced their hours. Hunter reduced his hours. As I’ve talked about, Hunter was just drinking iced coffees constantly when he was not a caffeine guy beforehand, just to keep up with his demands.”
“So he scaled back to a more focused job with less stress after his health scare, but he is full-time with WWE and Stephanie stepped away in part because of the age of their kids. And also just the idea that they have enough money, they want to appreciate life, and do some things outside of working for the company.”
