10 Facts About The Marriage Of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon
3. They Started A Charity Together
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon share their lives together publicly and on television, and any fan of WWE can tell they have a bunch in common, both in their characters and in their true personalities. Outside of the wrestling world, one thing that seems shared between the couple is a genuine love and affection for children and helping the disadvantaged, especially when there’s some overlap between the two.
One of the most Internet famous moments in recent WWE history was when Triple H broke character to ease a crying child at ringside, and they took the charitable efforts a step further with Connor Michalek. It was announcer Justin Roberts who introduced WWE to Michalek, and few did more than Triple H and Stephanie to make that sick, young fan’s dreams come true.
Connor was a young WWE fan stricken with cancer, who eventually succumbed to the disease at the age of 8. The most famous fan in WWE history was honored with an induction to the WWE Hall of Fame the next year, and Triple H and Stephanie took their tribute even further by starting the Connor’s Cure foundation to fight pediatric cancer.
Like everything the couple has done, the charitable efforts have actually received some controversy due to Stephanie’s questionable social media comments on the nature of philanthropy, but it’s still more than most couples have done to help the world, and they deserve some serious credit for setting up the foundation regardless of their intentions.
