Her WWE Romance
Judging from all pointers, Stephanie has been a “hottie” from her youth. During the early stage of her career, Stephanie made an appearance as Vince McMahon’s innocent daughter during an onscreen feud between Vince and The Undertaker. The latter stalked and managed to kidnap Stephanie at the end of the pay-per-view match which led to him almost marrying her in the middle of the ring the next night on RAW. Stone Cold Steven Austin however, rescued her.
Following this, Stephanie willingly started an on-screen relationship with one of the WWE wrestlers at the time known as TEST. Their relationship, however, unfortunately, led to a deep rivalry between the wrestler and Stephanie’s elder brother, Shane. Notwithstanding, Stephanie and TEST went ahead to team together in a September 20, 1999 face-off, defeating their opponent couple, Jeff Jarrett and Debra. The couple eventually got engaged during an in-ring ceremony. A spoiler, however, occurred as TripleH played a video that exposed how he drugged Stephanie and took her to Las Vegas where he married her in a drive-through ceremony.
After these events when Stephanie’s wrath towards TripleH must have cooled to a reasonable extent, both of them teamed up and became the onscreen owners of WWF. This became the period in history known as the “McMahon-Helmsley Era”. While TripleH won the WWF Championship during this time, Stephanie won the Women’s Championship after conquering Champion Jacqueline. McMahon would go on to marry Triple H for real in 2003.

In addition to WWE, Stephanie has made a number of other television appearances which must have earned her some significant sums too.
Her Family Life and Children
Stephanie McMahon became engaged to WWE Champion, Paul Michael Levesque “TripleH” on 2003’s Valentine’s Day. The duo subsequently married on October 25, 2003, at a Sleepy Hollow Roman Catholic church in New York. Sequel to their marriage, Stephanie took her husband’s last name “Levesque” and legally made “McMahon” her middle name.
With Triple H, Stephanie has three daughters. The first named Aurora Rose Levesque was born in 2006. The second, Murphy Claire Levesque arrived in 2008. The couple later welcomed Vaughn Evelyn Levesque in 2010. All three daughters have attended several wrestling games to support their parents.
