Booker T Believes Triple H was a Star Before Marrying Stephanie

Booker T is a WWE Hall of Famer, and he stated that Triple H was a big star even before he married Stephanie McMahon, the daughter of WWE CEO Vince McMahon. This was in response to one of CM Punk’s comments during his promo with MJF on AEW Dynamite.

CM Punk stated that MJF can only be number 1 in AEW if he married Tony Khan’s daughter. This was a clear shot at Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Booker T Comments on CM Punk's Shot at Triple H During a Promo

“The only way you’ll be number one is if Tony Khan has a daughter and you marry her,” Punk told MJF.

According to Booker T, Triple H was a bigger star than Punk even before he married Stephanie, even though wrestling legends like Bret Hart stated that Triple H was not very impressive in the ring. “It ticks me off a little bit, I’ve worked with Hunter since WCW.

Hunter was a bigger star than CM Punk was before he even married Stephanie McMahon and that’s just fact,” Booker T said on his Hall of Fame podcast on Wednesday. “As far as becoming a bigger star after that, of course, he was going to become a bigger star after that (marrying Stephanie), he was in the family now.

Look here, if CM Punk would’ve married Stephanie McMahon, he would’ve become a bigger star, perhaps”. Booker added, “CM Punk was a big star in WWE and they were treating him like he was a big star in WWE.

I don’t see how or why anyone could think that CM Punk wasn’t treated like a megastar”. Booker T also suggested that CM Punk was just looking to get a cheap pop from the crowd by referencing Triple H. “I’ve always been willing to say to someone’s face what I wanted to get off my chest,” Booker T stressed.

“I’ve never wanted to go and hide somewhere and get a cheap pop talking about someone, especially someone I respect, who has done it the way we all have – entertaining fans in America and abroad, blood, sweat and tears.

He (Triple H) is one of those guys who is one of the pillars of WWE, always will be. I watched that guy (Triple H) working on the furniture in WCW, I’m talking about stairs, chairs, I’m talking about blood matches, I considered him the real deal.

That was coming from one of his peers, that wasn’t from someone who got along with him, broke bread (with him), or ever rode down the road with him one time. I said, ‘This dude is the real deal.' ”
