Stephanie McMahon Reacts To Controversial WWE Attitude Era Wedding Homage

The Attitude Era in WWE was a lot of things, but subtle wasn't really one of them. Since the dawn of the PG Era, the company's higher-ups don't always jump at the chance to acknowledge some of that period's more controversial moments from that time, but every once in a while they make an exception — sometimes courtesy of WWE co-CEO Stephanie McMahon herself.


Back in 1999, during an on-screen relationship angle between McMahon and Test that ultimately led to an engagement and in-ring ceremony, Paul Levesque, known during his wrestling career as Triple H, revealed that he and McMahon had already tied the knot, albeit via a drive-in ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada, while McMahon was passed out in the front passenger seat. Many have looked at the WWE vignette as something done in poor taste considering McMahon appeared to be drugged and was getting married without consent.

In an homage to the infamous scene, Ryan Satin tweeted, "Got legally married at the infamous wedding chapel where Triple H and Stephanie McMahon tied the knot," including a comparison image demonstrating how he and his new wife had recreated the moment. McMahon, who married Levesque for real in 2003, congratulated the couple via retweet, even going so far as to say "I highly recommend this approach! While not so memorable, it seems to work out alright!"


McMahon and Levesque are currently even more of a power couple behind the scenes at WWE than they were on camera, as Levesque was named WWE Chief Content Officer shortly after his wife's elevation to co-CEO following the resignation of her father, Vince McMahon, over the summer.
