From the time we first saw Stephanie McMahon on-screen, we knew there was something special about her. Not only was she attractive, she has the McMahon genes and is not afraid to go on screen and push the envelope, all for the greater good of quality WWE television.

Even today, she plays the dreaded heel at times and plays an important role on television, whenever she does make appearances on WWE television. As one of the ‘girls’, she was often thrust into romantic storylines with the boys, and today we shall revisit some of them from her storied career (no pun intended).

Here are 5 romantic storylines that The Boss’ daughter Stephanie McMahon Helmsley, played out on screen.

#5 Relationship with Triple H

This is one of the most hated couples on television, not merely because they play heels but because The Authority has been a pain in the side of the modern wrestling fan since forever. But Stephanie McMahon and Triple H are the only couple in this list, who’ve actually been married in real life and also have 3 daughters.

They are also the most likely candidates to take the keys to the kingdom from Vince McMahon, once he can no longer physically run his empire. Their real life relationship caused much turmoil backstage because a storyline romance developed into a real-life love affair that neither Vince McMahon approved of, nor did Triple H’s then-girlfriend the now deceased 9th Wonder of the World, Chyna.

This is a storyline romance that began in 2000 and continues to this day, with no end in sight, at least in the foreseeable future. This is also a romance that most WWE fans, especially those who visit wrestling websites are pretty much aware of. So let’s move on to some other angles that are not as well known right now, shall we?

#4 Storyline romance with Test

Test is no longer with us, and we all miss him dearly. The Canadian was the object of affection of the beautiful Stephanie McMahon, at least in terms of storyline. This good-looking duo was paired up, much to the dismay of Shane McMahon, Stephanie’s brother, who had an entire feud with Test based on this particular angle.

And when Stephanie’s family would seem to approve of Test, and arrange for a dream, fairytale wedding for this gorgeous couple, lo and behold,The Game, The Cerebral Assassin, The King of Kings, Triple H would show up and show that he’d been wedded already with an unconscious Stephanie McMahon.

#3 The Undertaker’s Bride

This was an awkward angle which was more crime than romance. After all, there’s nothing more romantic than marrying your bride when she’s strapped to a cross, is there? During the infamous Vince McMahon’s ‘Corporation’ vs The Undertaker’s ‘Ministry of Darkness’ feud, The Undertaker abducted Stephanie McMahon and almost married her in an evil ceremony.

Yes, our beloved babyface wasn’t always the good guy. Thankfully, Stone Cold Stever Austin would intervene, and this evil union would be stopped in time. A shame really. Imagine The Undertaker as one-half of The Authority, week after week on TV. Actually, no...let’s move on.

#2 The kiss with Eric Bischoff

It’s the tail end of the Attitude Era and it’s Halloween. Every Superstar looks incredible in his/her costume. Smackdown General Manager Stephanie McMahon, who was a popular babyface then, decided to dress up as a witch, and she found someone who was dressed as her father in the party. Well, who’s under the mask?

Who else but Eric Bischoff himself, the General Manager of Monday Night Raw! They bicker for a bit, and then Bischoff kisses her and Stephanie seems to enjoy the brief romantic interaction between them. The sad thing about this angle is that there was absolutely no payoff or follow up. The story was forgotten forever.

#1 The angle with Kurt Angle

Kurt Angle was part of a full-fledged love triangle between himself, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, at the peak of the Attitude Era. Of course, this led to a feud between Angle and Triple H, which had Stephanie turn her back upon her husband and align with Angle.

While this feud was short lived, it was really memorable. The intimate tension between Angle and Stephanie was so intense that it was dripping with full-fledged heat. Immortal moments from an immortal era in wrestling.
