Triple H appeared on WWE’s ‘The Bump’ digital series today to promote his upcoming WWE 25th Anniversary special, and during his live interview on the popular web show, “The Game” spoke about his wife — Stephanie McMahon — being the true “Face of WWE.”
The Godfather of WWE NXT also commented on how Stephanie represents and understands every facet of their business.
In arguably his strongest words, Triple H indicated that if Vince weren’t around, “Stephanie IS the WWE.”
“Steph just gets this business,” said HHH during the show on 4/22. “She’s one of the smartest people I know. She’s very instinctive, even when she was getting into the business. She might not understand the why but knew what was right and what was wrong, instinctively, just like Vince.”
He continued, “One of the the things I love about her is she has a huge heart and you see that with Connor’s Cure and with other initiatives within the company as Chief Brand Officer. She has really put this company and what the company does in the community and for others out in the forefront in the best way possible as it’s made people realize how they can help. This company used to always do a lot of those but it wasn’t until later that they would begin to realize it was okay to say ‘hey, we support Make-a-Wish’ and it’s important because if people don’t see it, they don’t feel inspired to help. And when you can get everybody inspired to be a part of it, then it’s really meaningful.”
The WWE EVP added, “So her heart side of what she does, of how she sees the business and the creative of the business and the business side of the business and then the give back piece of it all. What the company really stands for. For me, if you take Vince out of the equation, Steph is the WWE. At every level, I think she is the family of it, the heart of it, the soul of it. She’s the business side of it, the creative side. She understands all those pieces. So to me, when you say ‘what is the WWE’ – nobody exemplifies that more than Steph. She is the WWE.”
