Despite the less than ethical fashion in which their relationship started, and despite the criticism they received, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon tied the knot on October 25th 2003. By 2010, the “King of Kings” had accomplished everything there was to inside a wrestling ring. He was 13 time World Champion (14 times now), former King of the Ring tournament winner, former Royal Rumble winner, former European Champion, former Tag Team Champion, and former Intercontinental Champion. With his in ring legacy all but secure, Hunter would step into perhaps his most important role. As the World Champion and son-in-law of Vince McMahon, Triple H always had a great amount of pull behind the scenes, but when he was given an official executive role in 2010, he was yielding a whole new type of power. Power, that some feared (with good reason) would go to his head. Luckily for the wrestling world, the Triple H that buried talented performers ceased to exist when his full time in-ring career ended. With the exception of CM Punk (That’ll be it’s own separate article), Hunter has been essential in the success of some of the Indie’s biggest stars. Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins both benefited from their work with Triple H, and both were eventually crowned World Champion under his watch.
