WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle recently delved into a pivotal chapter of his wrestling journey, the love triangle storyline involving himself, Stephanie McMahon, and Triple H. Angle, who clinched an Olympic Gold Medal before venturing into professional wrestling, joined the WWE in 1998.
Approximately a year later, he made his highly-anticipated main roster debut. In one of his initial storylines, Angle became entangled in a complex love triangle with Stephanie McMahon, and her then on-screen husband, Triple H. This storyline captured the imagination of fans and went on to become one of the most talked-about narratives of 2000.
During a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session, Angle provided insights into how this love triangle storyline significantly influenced his career trajectory. He expressed his fondness for the interactions with Triple H and Stephanie, crediting them for the promising direction of his wrestling character.
Angle also acknowledged the pivotal role played by the writer, Brian Gewirtz, and Vince McMahon in shaping the storyline’s success. He emphasized, “That angle is what set the tone for me. If that angle did not occur, I probably would have been mid-card for another two years. It’s amazing what storylines can do. (…) It was a different time, but if I didn’t have that angle with Stephanie and Triple H, and if we didn’t succeed with that angle, I don’t know if I would have had the success that I had early on.”
